3-4-2-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup Vs Bristol City: Paul Pogba To Be Back In Action?

Manchester United will travel to Bristol to take on the in-form Championship club Bristol City in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his players can avoid complacency at Ashton Gate with a place in the semi-finals of the competition up for grabs. The Portuguese manager used the league cup as a springboard for future success in his first season at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils beat Southampton in the league cup final in the previous campaign and then went on to win the Europa League and in turn book their place in this season’s Champions League group stages. So the competition might be highly significant for the manager this time around as he looks to make some changes ahead of their trip to Bristol. Their opponents have been the surprise packages of the Championship this season and are well capable of causing an upset.

It is expected that Mourinho will opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and might recall the likes of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the starting eleven to see off this tricky Bristol City side. The recent history of the fixture makes grim reading for the Robins as United have just suffered one defeat in their previous eight encounters with the Championship outfit.

3-4-2-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Bristol City


Sergio Romero is set to make a rare start in goal for the Red Devils and he might be shielded by a back three comprised of Victor Lindelöf, Chris Smalling, and Axel Tuanzebe. Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his defenders can keep another clean sheet against the Robins on Wednesday night after his side has just conceded a goal in this edition of the competition.


The central midfield will see the return of Paul Pogba following his three-match suspension due to a red card he received against Arsenal in the Premier League, a few weeks back. He might be paired up with Ander Herrera at the center of the park. Mateo Darmian will take his place on the right flank while Daley Blind might be in for a rare start in left midfield.


Mourinho might opt to use the pace and trickery of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford up top alongside the returning Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Red Devils will be hoping that the big Swede can mark his return with a goal against Bristol City and fire them into the last four of the competition.
