Manchester United's Line Up For Swansea Game Is Bananas
Manchester United fans, look away now.
The starting XI for today's Premier League clash with Swansea has been released and, well, just take a look at that back four, for a start:
Now, OK, Ashley Young has proven himself to be a capable full back when called upon, but even so, an out of position Young alongside PHIL JONES AND MARCOS ROJO, with a confidence bereft Matteo Darmian on the other flank?
And how about the dynamism and pace of that midfield? Ander Herrera being suspended is of course something Jose Mourinho can do nothing about, but both Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini starting is hardly going to worry Swansea too much, being that both men are essentially being used as holding midfielders with Mata, Pogba and Rooney playing behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Also, you may have noticed a name missing from the match day squad - Henrikh Mkhitaryan's appearance against Fenerbahce on Thursday night appears to have been nothing more than a cameo performance.
Funnily enough, United fans were none too thrilled with Jose Mourinho's team selection:
