The Premier League champions travel to the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night knowing they must score to stand any chance of making it through to the semi-finals of Europe’s premier club competition.
GK: David de Gea
You suspect that the in-form Spain international will need to be at his absolute very best against Bayern Munich on Wednesday if the visitors are to pull off the great escape and leave Bavaria with a place in the semi-finals of the Uefa Champions League.
RB: Phil Jones
The England international may well be utilised in a right-back berth to try and counter the specific threat posed by the European champions’ brilliant France left-winger Franck Ribery, with United head coach David Moyes thought to not trust Rafael to do the job.
CB: Rio Ferdinand
Does the veteran centre back have one last great performance left in the old legs ahead of his inevitable exit from Old Trafford at the end of this season? Well, that is the question we are about to find out at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
CB: Nemanja Vidic
Another who could very well be featuring his final-ever Uefa Champions League match for the Red Devils in Germany this week, although the skipper will be desperate to end his illustrious United career in Lisbon this May, so expect a big performance from the experienced Serb.
LB: Patrice Evra
Another veteran United defender who will be giving it his all in Bavaria this week to try and help create a huge upset, and Moyes will be hoping that the marauding France international can get over the halfway line as much as possible against Bayern.
