Varane, Matic And Sancho To Start, Maguire And Greenwood On The Bench: United’s Predicted XI To Take On Tottenham

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under all kinds of pressure heading into the game against Tottenham tomorrow evening. It really is a must-win match for the Norwegian.

In terms of his team selection, David De Gea is expected to start in goal and, with Raphael Varane back available, he could replace the out of form Harry Maguire in the centre of defence, with Victor Lindelof playing alongside him.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw may retain their places at fullback, even if their performances versus Liverpool don’t merit it. Diogo Dalot and Alex Telles are simply not rated highly enough by Solskjaer to be considered as starters.


In midfield, Paul Pogba’s suspension means there is likely to be two holding midfielders again. Nemanja Matic could come in for Scott McTominay, with Fred and Bruno Fernandes taking up the other two central positions.

It would be a surprise if Cristiano Ronaldo is dropped, so the Portuguese legend is expected to play through the middle. Marcus Rashford may keep his place on the left, while Jadon Sancho could get his chance in his favoured position on the right flank, with Mason Greenwood making way.

Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Face Spurs:

De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Varane, Shaw, Fred, Fernandes, Matic, Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford
