Loads of fans react to Man United line-up ahead of FA Cup semi-final

Manchester United are set to face-off against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final in a little under half an hour in a game which is arguably both sides most important game of the season, thus far.

The United team news has been released ahead of kick-off in a starting line-up which sees five changes from the side which started against Crystal Palace earlier in the week.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted to stick with number one David de Gea in between the sticks despite his recent comments which suggested back-up keeper Sergio Romero may continue his familiar cup role.

Elsewhere, United appear to be lining up with a less than traditional back five which sees full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka partner youngster Brandon Williams who comes in, in place of the injured Luke Shaw. At the heart of the United defence is a back three which contains Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and club captain Harry Maguire.

Further up the pitch fans can expect to see Fred and Nemanja Matic form a double pivot with star-man Bruno Fernandes sitting behind the strikers.

Marcus Rashford and Daniel James will be leading the line, presumably in a staggered shape with one, likely to be James, sitting off the other.

Overall, a very exciting line-up for the Reds which has undoubtedly been influenced in light of Arsenal’s shock result in last night’s first Semi Final which saw the Gunners beat Cup favourites Manchester City 2-0.

Fans have now taken to their social media to express their thoughts ahead of the big game.
