Stuck in the mire of an international break, I thought it would be nice to start the Man United thread a bit early. I hate international breaks, especially when we have a bit of momentum going and when our next game is United away.

Tradition and lazy punditry suggests that form goes out the window in these types of matches and we can expect a derby atmosphere, but unless our boys have a massive international break hangover, I think we're going to slaughter them. United are as poor a team as I've ever seen and that team is depleted through injuries. Even their one world-class player De Gea isn't anymore.

It sounds like Salah will be fit and it's just a bruise, so we go out with our strongest team. Wondering whether Alisson goes straight back in and how long Matip will be out.

Dave's Team:


TAA Matip (Gomez) VvD Robertson

Hendo Fabinho Gini

Salah Firmino Mane
