Manchester United is set to face Chelsea in tonight’s Premier League clash, aiming to bounce back from the recent setback against Newcastle United.
The Red Devils, currently trailing by five points for the final Champions League qualification spot, are in need of a significant turnaround.
Anticipating the team lineup, manager Erik ten Hag is likely to make two changes from the squad that faced Newcastle over the weekend.
In the forward line, French international Anthony Martial may cede his starting position to Danish center forward Rasmus Hojlund.
Despite Marcus Rashford’s struggling form this season, the absence of Sancho and Antony’s challenges may result in the English international retaining his starting role.
Garnacho and Fernandes are expected to maintain their positions in the attacking lineup.
Luke Shaw, who played in central defense at St. James’ Park, is likely to return to his preferred left-back position.
Victor Lindelof could partner with Harry Maguire in the central defense, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka is expected to continue at right back.
In the midfield, Mainoo and McTominay are likely to feature again.
The predicted 4-2-3-1 starting lineup for Manchester United against Chelsea: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Mainoo; Rashford, Fernandes, Garnacho; Hojlund.
