Our confirmed MUFC XI for a huge Champions League game vs Copenhagen is now in…
Manchester United find themselves in a must win situation. The Red Devils are in Denmark, taking on FC Copenhagen in a huge Champions League encounter. Lose here and it’s probably curtains on our campaign. Win and we’re right back in the mix.
Beating Copenhagen at Old Trafford was not easy. Tonight, it’ll be even tougher. The Danes will create one heck of an atmosphere – making it difficult for our lads to communicate, while there’s always going to be an intimidation factor.
Before the start of the group, these are the matches that you simply have to win. Nothing has changed in that regard. Erik ten Hag has no choice but to name his best line-up in the hopes of a huge three points.
Anyway, the team news is now in and it’s certainly an intriguing side in a few positions.

Andre Onana starts in between the sticks, with the man from Cameroon playing some great football of late.
At right-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is given the nod. He has looked superb since making his comeback from injury. Diogo DAlot plays at left-back, which is a position some will say is his strongest. Harry Maguire has overcame a potential concussion to be fit enough to start here, partnering Jonny Evans at the heart of the defence once again.
Scott McTominay’s good goal-scoring form has been rewarded with another start. He sits at the base of a midfield containing both Christan Eriksen and captain Bruno Fernandes. This is certainly not a trio we’ve seen play all that often together.
Marcus Rashford is back fit from injury and ready to play. He will presumably play off the right-wing here, with Alejandro Garnacho far more comfortable on the left. Rasmus Hojlund leads the line as per usual.
