‘After spending a fortune, we are still left with Carrick at centre-back!’ – Manchester United fans react to Europa League line-up

25 Feb

Injury-ravaged Manchester United have named only one senior defender in the side for their crucial Europa League second-leg clash with FC Midtjylland.


Chris Smalling misses the game – only the second time he has missed a match this season – and is replaced by Michael Carrick at centre-back, alongside Daley Blind.

Guillermo Varela continues at right-back while 19-year-old Joe Riley makes his full Red Devils debut at left-back.

United are 2-1 down in the tie ahead of the second-leg at Old Trafford on Thursday night and the defensive line-up has left many fans worried about the chances of progressing.

See the best reaction below! 

Manchester United team to face FC Midtjylland: Romero, Varela, Carrick, Blind, Riley, Herrera, Schneiderlin, Lingard, Mata, Memphis, Martial.

Subs: J.Pereira, Rojo, Poole, McNair, Love, A. Pereira, Rashford.
