less likely to be punished than it would be if he was at centre back. I also think the boss might go for a 4-5-1 formation to help cover the makeshift defence.
Noni: I think the defence will comprise Fletcher, Carrick, Gill and Evra. Gibson is set to start again, and I think he'll play alongside Anderson in the centre of the park. This is the time for Nani to step up, so I expect him to start. At the other flank I'd go for Welbeck, and up front Owen should definitely start.
Chikodi: For us to succeed at Wolfsburg we have to choke the midfield. Remember that our opponents are also reading our blogs and will know that we have a depleted backyard (defence). I think a 4-5-1 formation will be ideal.
