Juan Mata, Memphis Depay, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian all started Manchester United's match against CSKA Moscow on the bench.
Louis Van Gaal was in a tight spot with a trip to Moscow in mid-week followed by the Manchester Derby. Some of his line-up decisions - especially Memphis Depay who was also benched on Saturday - may be considered performance-related but there is also some reason to think that LVG will want a fresh squad heading into the local derby with the league leaders. United started De Gea, Rojo, Jones, Smalling, Valencia, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Martial, Herrera, Lingard, and Rooney. Wed, Oct 21, 2015 03:50:00 PM
