Christmas has come early! Eric Bailly has returned! And while we know literally nothing about the subject at hand, we can only assume that dangerously frozen pitches are precisely the best things for recently healed knee ligaments! Hooray!
Joining United's recuperated Ivorian in the centre of defence will be Marcos Rojo, with Daley Blind and Ashley Young patrolling the flanks. Sergio Romero is in goal. (Hurroo?)
In midfield, we have the fairly attacking combination of Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba, which suggests that Jose Mourinho isn't looking for just the draw that United need. Wayne Rooney returns in the no. 10 position, we're guessing, with Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan either side. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play up front.
On the bench, we have David de Gea, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Phil Jones, Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. Be nice to see Fosu-Mensah get on. But you keep Phil Jones as far way from that surface as possible.
