Manchester United revealed their starting line-up for their match against FC Midtjylland and Twitter was unimpressed.
Louis Van Gaal’s side has been decimated by injuries, forcing the Dutchman to play midfielder Michael Carrick at centre-back and give 19-year-old left-back Joe Riley his first senior start.
United must win tonight if they want to progress to the next round of the Europa League after losing 2-1 against the unknown Danish side in the first leg and Twitter users are not giving them much hope after seeing the teamsheet.
We can only HOPE #MUFC

Got the #MUFC team news earlier inside Old Trafford and saw that Carrick is playing at CB. I was so full of rage that I punched an old woman

This one post may have just summed up United’s recent history.

Manchester United welcome FC Midtjylland to Old Trafford knowing they must score to progress without captain Wayne Rooney or influential defender Chris Smalling.
