The teams are out for Manchester United's early Premier League clash against Watford, and the big news is that Memphis Depay has been given the nod up top. James Wilson, who was the other option to start as the lone striker, hasn't even made the bench.

Marcos Rojo's long trip back from South America has cost him his place in the starting lineup, with Daley Blind filling in at left-back instead. Youngsters Sean Goss and Marcus Rashford join the Italian international in warming the bench.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin form the deep midfield duo, behind the anticipated trio of Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and the returning Ander Herrera. It's certainly an intriguing-looking team, and though we'll certainly miss Anthony Martial, it will be intriguing to see how the rejigged attack functions.
