Sergio Romero (goalkeeper) It’s a huge game for Man United at Old Trafford.In the first of two legs, the Red Devils play Belgian club Brugge, with the winner progressing to the Champions League group stage.So it makes sense for manager Louis van Gaal to play a strong side as he attempts to guide United to football’s Promised Land for the first time since the 2013/14 season.Midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is nearing full fitness and could be 100 per cent ready to start against Newcastle at the weekend, so Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin may still partner each other.Considering what’s at stake, it seems unlikely Van Gaal will change too much from Friday night’s win against Aston Villa, though Ashley Young’s experience could see him return at Adnan Januzaj’s expense.Click the arrow above, right, to see the possible XI and let us know if you agree. 18.
