While Manchester United’s focus may well be on the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final tie next week, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be aware of the fact that they need to secure a top-four finish as well.
With that in mind, he is likely to go strong with his team selection against Tottenham this evening. Dean Henderson is expected to replace David De Gea in goal, with the Spaniard dropping to the bench.
Luke Shaw is a doubt for the Spurs clash and Solskjaer may err on the side of caution, and hand Alex Telles a rare start instead. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire will make up the rest of the back four.
Paul Pogba is also carrying a knock but the Frenchman is said to be likelier than Shaw to play. He could line up alongside Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes in midfield.
Edinson Cavani may return to the starting eleven tonight, with Daniel James the favourite to make way. Mason Greenwood could play on the right with Marcus Rashford coming in off the left flank.
Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Play Spurs:
Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles, McTominay, Fernandes, Pogba, Greenwood, Cavani, Rashford
