De Gea Save

GK: David de Gea

The young Spain international is one of the few players at Manchester United who can say he has performed up to his usual high standards so far in this campaign, so one can only imagine what type of mess the Premier League giants would be in right now were it not for the in-form shot stopper.

RB: Rafael

Despite the Brazilian’s slightly wayward display against Liverpool in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, when the full back could easily have been sent off after conceding a first-half penalty, Moyes has few other options other than to play the defender against the Greeks

CB: Phil Jones

Again, were it not for an untimely injury picked up by his England international team-mate Chris Smalling, there is every chance that that the former Blackburn Rovers central defender would have also been axed for Wednesday night’s hugely important encounter after a more than shaky display at the back against the Reds.

CB: Nemanja Vidic

Manager David Moyes will just be praying that his skipper is capable of producing one more great performance at the back for the Red Devils on Wednesday and that the experienced Serb does not have other new club Inter Milan on his mind instead.

LB: Patrice Evra

Again, similar to with Vidic, the France international will also be needed to roll back the years against the newly crowned Greek champions if the home team are to stand any chance whatsoever of making it through to the next r0und of Europe’s premier club competition.
