    huge game v Chelsea next weekend and we are 1 point away from securing our place in the knockout rounds of the CL, so I’d rather rotate where possible to keep others fit and firing.

    I’d go for...

    Romero

    Lindelof
    Tuanzebe
    Smalling

    Shaw (he will play Blind)
    Herrera
    Mctominay
    Darmian

    Lingard
    Martial/Rashford
    Mata

    Aye, can't wait to see the reserves in my first home game for 13 years...

    I do think the team will look a lot stronger than LeChuck suggests.

    I wouldn't take the game too lightly. Let's say we put out the reserves and lost, then slipped up away at Basel.. the final game against CSKA could become a decider. I'd rather we put out a strong side with two or three changes to ensure the points we need to top the group before resting most of the first team.

    Our second string is an excellent side though — playing Romero, Darmian, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Blind, Mata, McTominay, Lingard, Martial etc. would not be taking the game too lightly.

    Don't care what he does, so long as we win. Would like to put qualification to bed before fluting around with rotations.

    I remember being excoriated by my mates a few years ago, when United were losing a CL game and I claimed that it was only our B team. They fucking turned on me, saying I was arrogant (and a bollox). I pointed out that we had a huge league game v Arsenal, compared to a nothing game v whoever we were playing (we had already qualified).

    United beat Arsenal that weekend. I was one happy bunny.

    It is a very good side but with that team I doubt many would agree we didn't take it too lightly if we lost.

    Matic has been the cornerstone of our team this season and I'd be surprised if he didn't play a part.

    I think we should line up with 3 at the back...can see Mou using it for Sunday. Might as well use another game to get tactics infused and what not.

    But yea, agree with the starting XI there (apart from Matic...would put in Herrera for him).

    I'd also consider Miki who's been off the boil for a few games now - I think we'd be better off giving him the minutes v Benfica and benching him for Chelsea.

    Chelsea line up:

    DdG, Jones, Smalling, Bailly, Ashley, Tony V, Herrera, Matic, Rashers, Lukaku, Mata/Martial.

    You have an irrational hatred of Daley Blind.

    I think you're jealous of his beautiful locks.
