As Manchester United prepare to face Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday, our writers have shared their ideal starting lineups.

United have had a challenging start to the season and are in need of a victory against Galatasaray to boost their campaign.

The Red Devils kicked off their Champions League journey with a 4-3 defeat to Bayern Munich, making a win at Old Trafford vital if Erik ten Hag’s team hopes to advance to the knockout stages.

Galatasaray, having won the Turkish league with a clear eight-point lead last season, boasts quality players like Lucas Torreira, Dries Mertens, Mauro Icardi, and former United player Wilfried Zaha in their ranks.

Regarding team news, Antony has returned to training after his leave of absence and is likely to be available for selection. Kobbie Mainoo also trained on Monday, but Sergio Reguilon was absent and is not in contention.

Samuel Luckhurst’s Lineup:

United has little choice but to persist with Sofyan Amrabat at left back, despite his recent struggles. Victor Lindelof’s poor form this season may warrant Harry Maguire’s return.

Hannibal Mejbri, who was surprisingly unused over the weekend, could prove to be an asset after a week’s rest. Bruno Fernandes, who often has an impact on the right, should start, and Alejandro Garnacho deserves a chance on the left.

Rich Fay’s Lineup:

Due to injuries, Ten Hag’s options are limited, necessitating at least one makeshift choice at full-back. Amrabat should not be deployed in defense again, which might offer Lindelof an undeserved opportunity on the right.

Eriksen, likely to be fit after his weekend cameo, should start, providing an opportunity to see what Mount can offer from the right wing.

While Rashford may not deserve to start, Garnacho is better suited as an impact substitute from the bench. Hojlund remains the primary option through the middle.
