It is turning into a disastrous season for Manchester United.
But, for a select few, there will be a chance to salvage something at this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
Some members of United's squad are guaranteed their place on the plane with their respective countries.

It also provides the last chance for others to play themselves into the United manager's plans.
Here's a list of 15 United players hoping to go to Brazil this summer, ranked by the impact they could make.
Weight has been given to whether they are likely to be in their respective starting XIs, how important they are and how well their country is expected to do.
