Louis van Gaal doesn't care about your abandonments. He has no time for impending cup finals. He knows that if you change your starting XI, the terrorists win.
So, we're as you were for tonight's game against Bournemouth. A back four of Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson will do their best to keep David de Gea from having too much to do. If there's anything in these new rumours, this could be the Spaniard's last game at Old Trafford as a United player. What an awful thought.
In front of him, the Wayne Rooney-Michael Carrick midfield axis continues, presumably to confuse any unambitious time travellers that have popped forward a few years. Then we've got Juan Mata and Anthony Martial either side of Jesse Lingard, with Marcus Rashfor -- newly of England, almost -- up top to do the goals.
On the bench: Sergio Romero, Phil Jones, Guillermo Varela, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera, Andreas Pereira and Memphis Depay.
