Midfield selection for tomorrow at wolves is a tough one, don't think we should play Lingard and Periera together, l get the need for energy in the middle but we lack the defensive side when both play. So do we bring in Matic or bring back Fred? McTominay starts as does Pogba. Up top Martial, with Rashford left and James on the right and leaving one for the centre, l would play Periera just for his work rate.

So redconi after all that you would play the same midfield as last week and swap jessie for james out wide.

I think wolves will sit deep and try to hurt us on the counter like last season. I would play the same back 4 with Matic and Mctominay shielding them. A front four of Martial, Rashford, Mason and Pogba should be good. Pogba in the no 10 role can create something to open the deep defence and with other three we get good dribblers and fast runners for a quick 1-2 around their defence. Mctominay can help offensively as well.
Our full backs need to make overlapping runs if we want to create any chances. Against Chelsea AWB was left very isolated when in offence as he had no one to pass on the right hand side. He still did a good job even when there were 2 or 3 opposition players around him. Once James came in at least he had some support on the right side.
On the other hand when Shaw was going forward that left side was overcrowded with Martial and Rashford both in the same position.

3nd place there for the taking tomorrow . I reckon we will do it.

Meant top spot - didn't get excited enough.
Great for morale.

If we win we're top aren't we?

We shouldn’t start Pereira in these tough away fixtures, he’s knocked off the ball too easily. I’d opt for Matic and McTominay and make sure they stay disciplined, Wolves move the ball through midfield so quickly and also switch play really well, we need a few 9/ 10 performances tomorrow.

I expect the same team as last week . James may come in.

18 Aug 2019 19:59:37
Might see fred come in. Ole talking him up this week. i'd be happy to see same 11 if not.

I think Fred will surprise a few this year. He has taken time this settle but he has an engine and there have been signs. Not says no he will be a worldwide bt for think he may get a lot of game time and prove his worth.

18 Aug 2019 21:22:09
He needs to because we're painfully short there. Think next summer we'll be bringing a few in.

18 Aug 2019 22:50:19
I don't think James will start, a good option for the last 20 minutes.

18 Aug 2019 22:52:49
Right said Fred, it's time to shine.

19 Aug 2019 05:37:52
Matic is positionally better in the DM role.

19 Aug 2019 10:11:38
I'm hoping we will see a renewed Fred this season. There were games and moments last season particularly toward the back end of the season where you could see glimpses of a player in there.

Hopefully he can kick on this year in a similar vein to Lindelof in his second season. Both Fred and Lindelof came from weaker leagues with a much bigger step up than players signed from La Liga, Ligue 1, the Bundesliga or Serie A.

As for the game tonight, I wouldn't put Matic anywhere near the team. His lack of mobility and safe passing run the risk or being caught in possession and lacking a cutting edge against a well drilled defence.

We need mobility to avoid the press and creativity.

I would be tempted to either bring Fred in and push Pogba up to No.10 with Lingard going wide right or McTominay and Pogba in midfield with Lingard at No.10 and Greenwood wide right.
