How should Manchester United line up against Norwich City?

Which players, tactics and formation should Manchester United use in their Premier League game against Norwich City on Saturday?

Manchester United, incredibly, have only three injuries to their squad, and only two of them to first-choice players. Sorry Will Keane.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Luke Shaw won't be available for selection until next season, when good old Jose Mourinho will be in charge.

That means David de Gea should play in goal, unless Louis van Gaal wants to throw a spanner in the works and ruin the already slim chances of him staying on.

In defence, it's anyone's guess, but let's assume Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo will both start, because that's the most depressing two I can think of. In central defence, Dumb and Dumber will likely play again, as the only other option is Dumberer.

Marouane Fellaini is thankfully suspended until the FA Cup final (doom!), so expect Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick to start, with the best midfielder we have, Ander Herrera, on the bench, joined by the best number 10 we have, Juan Mata, on the bench too.

In attack, the Championship-level Jesse Lingard and Senior-Legends-level Wayne Rooney will try their best to ruin things for Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

tBB prediction:

Subs: Romero, Darmian, Fosu-Mensah, Young, Herrera, Mata, Memphis
