The club has a long-standing sporting with two other members of the Dutch Big Three, Ajax and Feyenoord. PSV Eindhoven play their home games in the Philips Stadion, and have fielded some of the greatest names in football history - Ronaldo, Ronald Koeman, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Eric Gerets, Romario, Ruud Gullit, Arjen Robben; apart from former and current United players, Park Ji Sung, Memphis and Jaap Stam.

    Win this and we're through.

    Hopefully a few of our injured players come back for this.

    Rooney replaces Herrera at #10, Martial comes in for Lingard/ Mata. Simples.

    Blind for Jones if injured.
    Bit harsh but Lingard and Mata need to be benched, Mata in if Herrera's injured.​

    Is what I'd like to see. Mata and Darmian need rest. Schweinsteiger should also go off for Goss IMO at around 60 minutes providing we are in the clear.

    Listening to LVG the only player I expect to be back is Rooney but we'll see.

    De Gea
    Darmian-Smalling-Blind-Rojo
    Schneiderlin-Schweinsteiger
    Mata-Rooney-Lingard
    Memphis ​

    Or Rooney up top, Mata at 10, Memphis on the left and Lingard on the right.

    subs: Romero, McNair, CBJ, Young, Pereira, Goss, Rashford. - this depends on who is back fit obviously.

    I think we'll be cautious with Martial and he'll be on the bench for this one.

    Memphis has earned a starting spot IMO. I'd give Martial a bit of a breather, even if he's fit.

    Tricky lineup to predict. Does Young continue at right back or does Darmian come in? Will Rooney and Martial be fit and ready to play? Big game regardless and we can qualify with a win here. My hope/guess is:

    De Gea
    Darmian Smalling Blind Rojo
    Schneiderlin Schweinsteiger
    Rooney Mata
    Martial Memphis
    Kind of like what we had today, but with Martial in for Lingard if he's fit, and Rooney for Herrera as Herrera is out. Maybe Lingard in for Mata, but both are fine. Can easily turn into a 4-2-3-1 with Memphis drifting to the left and Rooney to the right as he played for England.

    Already got ourselves a bunch of injuries and caveman cnut Moreno probably hasn't even picked this week's victim yet.

    Rest everyone and get the legends team registered.

    I can't see anything other than a win.
    Even if we play with 10 men (no Rooney jokes, please), I think we'll win.
    This is the first time in a long time, where I am overly confident of a win.

    EDIT: I just checked the score predictions. Only 1% predict us to lose, so I'm not the only one who is confident.

    Hopefully this, but I reckon Rooney will force either Memphis or Lingard out.

    :D

    2-0 can be a misleading scoreline. I think we will grab a goal around 20-30 min, sit back and pass it aimlessly before being sucker punched, or grab a late goal.

    It's almost a script nowadays.

    Jones out is a big shame. PSV is good at pressing. I don't trust Blind with forwards pressing him incessantly, especially with Rojo next to him as well.

    Depay has been pretty good in the CL so I think it's important he starts again and gets his confidence up. I would start Rooney also and maybe bring on Martial as a sub.

    I think we'll be more cautious this time round and we conceed 2 quick goals.

    2-0 my prediction.

    We were the far better side in the previous game against this lot. We should win this by a couple of goals.

    Get the pitch wide and stretch them, hopefully carrick is fit to give basti a rest and give us a great outlet from deep. Would love to see lingard Memphis martial and Mata but no doubt Rooney will be in.

    I think this is probably our best team from what's available. That front four could potentially be outstanding.

    I agree with 3 of them. I think Rooneys days of being outstanding are past him. Putting an inform Mata or Herrera in that No.10 position and that front 4 could be devastating in Europe.

    Chill man he hasn't injured anybody in like a month. He did injure another guy in the next match after that leg break.
    PSV are not in good form they should be eaten alive at OT. Buut we know how it's gone this season.
    I'm predicting a 2-0.

    Difficult game ahead of us. Lot of injuries, but I just hope us to win this game and seal our qualification.
    With the players we have at the moment, I just think that we're not balanced enough. The two wings are not working well together, we haven't duos that are working well. Rojo is not the best left back and is not combining either, Darmian is so so, but Mata is the issue here when he never overlapping on the wing. I think that this is our main problem
