Rotation

So given today’s must win game and the FA cup game Sunday how do we rotate the team best?

It was clear after 5 straight games with same team rotation is needed

Fernandes has his worst night in a United shirt and definitely needs a break but he’s been the fulcrum of all our good work. Pogba hardly had a good game either but did come off early enough.

Chelsea have 2 extra days to rest for the FA cup but to be honest I couldn’t care less about the FA cup compared to top 4.

I would go with

DDG
AWB Bailly Maguire Lindelof (assuming both LBs are out)
McT
Fred Pogba
Greenwood Ighalo Martial

Leave rashford, matic, fernandes on the bench and use it necessary

Its an important game. But it's equally important we don't lose anyone to injury, especially Bruno. I would rest him, play McT and Fred, givr Pogba 45 minutes if necessary.

You'd hope it should be enough, but we rarely have an easy time at Selhurst Park. Even our wins there in recent years have generally been tight affairs.

generally they're a club whose home fans are right up for it, obviously that's not part of the equation tonight. lost their last 5 too, so if our players are anywhere near fit, we should have enough for them.

I think we'd see a good performance out of Fred and McT anyway. They'll be itching to play and have proved they have a good partnership. As long as Fernandes or Pogba are ahead of them to offer that link up with attacl, i'd not be concerned.

Need to look at AWB who didnt play well and looked knackered in the last 15-20 minutes against Southampton

he had a bit of a shocker...but if either LB is unfit, and given that dalot hasn'r been seen for weeks, not much choice...unless we did go 3 at the back and ask james to play wing back i suppose.

remember when phil jones used to play right back?

I wouldn't be surprised to see on or both play tonight to be honest. They'll be itching to show they can contribute and to gear themselves up for a probably FA Cup semi final start.

There’s no way we’ll be playing with a midfield three. Ole isn’t going to change the system even if Bruno is left out, which I can’t see happening.

If it does happen, though, we’ll see Mata (most likely), Pereira or Lingard at ten.

I wouldn't change too much but I would freshen it up a bit.

If we had seen out the Southampton game, we'd have room to juggle the squad for the FA Cup. Right now we need 3 points more than anything.

I’d stick with the same starting XI.
