Cavani And Bailly To Start, Rashford And Lindelof Drop Out: Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Play Leeds

It will be interesting to see what manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does with his team selection, considering the Leeds clash comes four days before the Europa League semi-final first leg against Roma.

Dean Henderson will likely keep his place in goal, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw taking up the two fullback positions. Victor Lindelof could be rested with Eric Bailly coming in to partner Harry Maguire. The Ivorian has returned to full training this week after being cleared to do so, following a positive virus test.

In midfield, Fred and Scott McTominay may be handed roles as the two holding midfielders, with Bruno Fernandes being given his customary number 10 role.


Solskjaer has confirmed that Marcus Rashford is a doubt for the match at Elland Road, so the forward may not be risked ahead of the Roma game. Edinson Cavani could return to the starting line up, with Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba playing either side of him.

Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Face Leeds:

Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Fernandes, McTominay, Greenwood, Cavani, Pogba
