Strongest Manchester United Lineup To Face Shrewsbury: Borthwick-Jackson Is Fit To Start

Predicted Manchester United Lineup vs Shrewsbury

Things are going from bad to worse for Manchester United and apparently Louis Van Gaal has been warned that he must deliver in the next three games to keep his job intact and the first of the three matches begins with a tie against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup.

For those who don’t know, Shrewsbury play in the football league one of England, that is basically the third tier of English Football and they sit at the 19th slot in the table with a goal difference in a negative figure.  While it looks like United are going to handle it with ease, we’re not forgetting that Manchester United are burned with huge problems of their own and the person being blamed is of course, the gaffer Louis Van Gaal.  A recent loss against the Danish side Midtjylland has not helped United’s cause and another unconvincing performance against Shrewsbury will lead to massive chaos.

Anthony Martial

With all this in the backstage, Louis Van Gaal will take his side to the county town of Shrewsbury of Shropshire in England with several injuries to his players and with a solid aim of winning the match and progressing to the next around. Anything lesser than a win, will add another sack of huge stone on his back and Van Gaal will find himself in a position where he wouldn’t want to be.  Here is the predicted line-up of Manchester United ahead of the crucial Fa Cup tie.

Formation : 4-2-3-1

GK : David De Gea

David De Gea picked up a minor knock ahead of the pre-match training against Midtjylland and United had to play Romero in front of him but it looks like De Gea is well on his way to take his place between the poles again ahead of this very important tie. De Gea has been one of the most consistent performers for United and once again he’ll be eagerly awaiting to answer when questioned in the game!


Manchester United’s defence has to be the most inconsistent throughout the season and quite often it’s been shuffled due to devastating injuries. Donald Love, Daley Blind, Chris Smalling and Cameron Borthwick Jackson are expected to represent the back four of Manchester United. At Denmark, Daley Blind was shifted to the left back position and Patrick McNair was played at Centre Back beside Smalling but since Borthwick-Jackson is fit again to make the first team again, Louis Van Gaal is expected to stick with this back four at Shrewsbury.

Midfielders and Wingers:

One of the changes Manchester United are deemed to make is the bringing back of Marouane Fellaini in the playing eleven. Fellaini is expected to partner Michael Carrick in the midfield as well as provide aerial threat during set-pieces and when the attack is coming from the flanks.

Jesse Lingard and Memphis Depay will play at right and left flank respectively with someone else getting promoted at the top and of course, we know who it is!


Is has to be Anthony Martial isn’t it? Deemed as the biggest upcoming talent in the country of France, Martial is one player who has won many hearts from the Manchester United fans and so far he’s been impressive. A dazzling lad with a sublime ability to keep control of the ball and make clever runs, Martial will be looking to add to the spice again and make crucial runs to upset the Shrewsbury defence.
