Manchester United


Cristiano Ronaldo’s new role at Manchester united of playing as a false nine has worked perfectly and he has already got into the score sheet both in UEFA champions league and English premier league while playing at that position hence he should start as the main striker.

Marcus Rashford is back from injury and he will have fully recovered and will start on the left wing and Jadon Sancho or Mason Greenwood play on the other wing.


Bruno Fernandes has been a great threat to opponents from the midfield. He creates so many chances and even scores from the midfield and hence deserves starting as the attacking midfielder.

Paul Pogba and MC Scott Tominay should start as the defensive midfielders.


Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane and Aaron Wan Bissaka could start at the defense to ensure that it is solid and impenetrable.

David De Gea deserves starting at the goalpost. This season he has made several saves for his team and he is in top form.

Manchester City


Manchester city coach should start Raheem Sterling and Mahrez on the wings while Gabriel Jesus should play as the main striker.


Manchester city new signing Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne should play the roles of attacking midfielders.

Pep should use only one defensive midfielder and that is Rodrigo.


Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, John Stones and Walker should start at the defense to keep it solid and impenetrable.
