Allof these. ALL OF THESE would start for United and probably play better.

Juventus started their Serie A title defence with a victory over Parma as club captain Giorgio Chiellini scored in the first half of their 1-0 win.
Cristiano Ronaldo looked to have doubled their lead only for VAR to spring into action and rule his head as being in an offside position. Maurizio Sarri did not attend the match as he is receiving treatment for pneumonia.
