Manchester United come up against La Liga side Sevilla in the Champions League knockout match second leg. The team drew 0-0 in the first leg and Jose will know that elimination is a real possibility unless United target an out and out win on the night.

Here is how they will expect to the line-up.

Formation: 4-2-3-1


The goal will be marshalled by possibly the safest man in the world at the moment, David De Gea. The Spanish stopper has reached the pinnacle of his performance level and draws out top saves on a daily basis. He is by far the strongest player in the team and thanks to him, United can escape with such an average defence.

He pulled off some amazing saves in the last leg including a point-blank save which has kept his team in the match and United will need him once again to show up if they expect to progress to the next leg.

Ashley Young will be expected to line up at left back. He is not a natural defender but the experienced player has turned out to be one of Mourinho’s more trusted generals leading the side from the back in an unusual position.

Antonio Valencia will be expected to show up at right back and lead the side on an important night for the Red Devils. Eric Bailly who recently returned from a long-term injury will be expected to fill up one of the sports at centre back with his partner most likely to be the inconsistent Chris Smalling who will have to pull up his socks for this tie.
