Manchester United

Manchester United suporters are now predicting their statring attacking lineup for the team’s clash with Villarreal in the Champions League.

Manchester United fans are now looking to get their first win in this year’s Champions League, Their supporters are also keen to see players like Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba, and Bruno Fernandes in their first 11 for Wednesday’s clash with Villarreal.

These two teams met in the Europa League final at the end of last season, with Villarreal picking up the win in a penalty shootout.

After they finish the extra time with 1-1, goalkeeper David De Gea was shouted at as the first player to miss a penalty on the night, giving the La Liga side a dramatic 11-10 triumph.

Now is the best time for Manchester United to take revenge, there is more pressure on Ronaldo and his teammates to secure qualification from their Champions League group after losing to Young Boys in their first game. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is the manager of the Manchester team watched his side lose to Young Boys without making any proper approach to secure when a point. Now the team really needs results against both Villarreal and Atalanta.

Villarreal played their first game with Atlanta which ended in a 2-2 draw, now they are looking desperate to get their first win against Man U, Unai Emery’s team would likely be content with a draw at Old Trafford and that will also be a good result for them.

Most fans are now predicting a lineup that sees De Gea starts in goal, while there are a number of changes from what would usually be United’s starting defense. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, and Luke Shaw are all out, meaning Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, and Alex Telles are picked to start at the back with Raphael Varane.

In midfield, they suggest, Van de Beek, Pogba, and Fernandes to make the XI, although it would also be a big surprise if Solskjaer set the team up without at least one holding midfield player.

In the attack, they are keen to see Cristiano Ronaldo with Mason Greenwood to his right and Jadon Sancho to his left, but the question is, will Sancho deliver today? is he in a good position to face a difficult to beat team like Villarreal.

There has been a slow start to life at Old Trafford after Manchester United made a big summer transfer and also saw a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Manchester United has now tasted defeat in three of their last four games. However, their supporters are clearly feeling as though the attack is the best and ready to get the results against Villarreal.
