I think Jose will try to bring a few fresh legs into the game:
De Gea
Valencia Jones Smalling Darmian
Matic Herrera
Lingard Mikhi Martial
Lukaku

would not surprise me to see 4-3-3; De Gea
Valencia. Bailly Jones. Blind
Herrera. Matic Fellaini
Rashford. Lukaku. Martial
Regardless of the lineup we should walk away from Moscow with 3 points.
I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.

Tough travel - long flight and the match kicking off 9.45pm local time.

This could well be another grind - get in and out with a result and ill be happy enough - 3 points sets us up very well to progress.

It would be nice to see a front line of Rashford - Lukaku - Martial

That's a shame tbh. He's the type of player who I could see being key to us in difficult conditions.

Normally I would welcome this as good news, but he is playing good right now and we are short on options.

Well no we could play a front 4 of miki Mata Rashford/martial then lukaku up top but fellaini would be a much better option than Mata imo

Seems like a very unbalanced option. I'm guessing we will see Carrick in this game.

Well I would assume we would have Herrera and Matic deeper

Matic is a doubt, picked up some injury vs Southampton

If matic is indeed injured as well, I would tend to play Herrera and Carrick (no other real option I suppose) and have a fast front 3 and tell both CM not to move lol

update:
carrick and fellaini injured

Jose didn't mention anything about matic, so I presume he's fit.
Must be matic & herrera in the middle?

I would say so unless Jose has a tactical plan up his sleeve - it'll be interesting to see what line up he goes for..........have a feeling we might see the 352

To be fair Matic and Herrera would have been my pick anyway, good opportunity to see how they pair up in a two considering how good Herrera was last season. Jones out too.

I would go for the following

Bailly Smalling Lindelof
Valencia --------------------------Young
Matic - Herrera
Rashford -------Lukaku ------ Martial

Pacy up front with a solid core- not sure if Jose will go for this. MickyT likely to start I suppose

Jones is injured btw

Saw it first off on a YouTube blog/discussion and then a story in the Daily Fail (not the most reliable but...). I don't think either is injured, it appears that Mourinho is just giving them a rest and getting minutes for bench players.
