Manchester United V Huddersfield – Team News, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got off to the perfect start with the 5-1 mauling of Cardiff City on Saturday evening.

The Norwegian will be hoping to make it two wins from two when United face Huddersfield in his first home game in the dugout tomorrow.

On the injury front, the Red Devils are likely to be still without Chris Smalling. The centre-back is suffering from a foot injury. Marcos Rojo has also missed the last two games and will likely be out of contention to face the Terriers.


Scott McTominay is out with a knock he sustained before the Champions League game against Valencia a couple of weeks ago. Alexis Sanchez has returned from Chile after undergoing treatment on a hamstring injury, but he is still out for a few more weeks.

Romelu Lukaku did not feature against Cardiff City due to personal reasons, and it isn’t known when he will return.

Huddersfield’s injury list has begun to build in recent weeks. Playmaker Aaron Mooy is out until February with a knee injury. Danny Williams will also be out for a similar period with the same issue. Abdelhamid Sabiri is a long-term absentee with a broken collarbone.

Captain Tommy Smith tore his right hamstring in the 1-0 defeat against Arsenal earlier this month and won’t return until the New Year. Vice-captain Jonathan Hogg missed the defeat to Southampton with a knee injury and is a doubt for the match at Old Trafford. Rajiv van la Parra is set to have a late fitness test on a back injury.

The bookmakers are banking on United to get the three points.  Solskjaer’s side are 1/4 odds-on with Bet365. A draw is 11/2 at Betway, while a win for Huddersfield is 16/1 with Betfred.

Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Face Huddersfield:

De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Jones, Shaw, Herrera, Matic, Pogba, Lingard, Rashford, Martial

Huddersfield’s Predicted XI:
