Manchester United had a mixed summer with many fans and pundits disappointed in how the club went about their transfers.
However, the Red Devils have the opportunity to put all that behind with a statement victory against rivals Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to implement his ideology during the pre-season and we predict his likely first XI.
Spanish stopper David de Gea has been one of the best performers for the club and would be looking to begin the season with a clean sheet.
In front of De Gea would be a new centre-back pairing as record signing Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof are seen as the future Vidic and Ferdinard. New signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw should start in the fullback positions.
The midfield battle would be a crucial aspect of the game and Manchester United could start with Scott McTominay in the holding midfield.
French maestro Paul Pogba will be expected to produce the goods this season and would play alongside McTominay in the midfield.
Jesse Lingard tends to deliver in big matches and would play in the advanced midfield role flanked by new man Daniel James on the right and Anthony Martial on the left.
The departure of Romelu Lukaku means that Marcus Rashford has to step up this season and deliver the goals for Manchester United as he leads the attack.
Man Utd predicted line-up vs Chelsea: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, McTominay; James, Lingard, Martial; Rashford
