Manchester United will face off against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday hoping to come away with maximum points from South Yorkshire. The Red Devils will need to pick up some wins over the next few weeks if they are to challenge for a top 4 spot this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and keep changes to a minimum for this weekend’s clash versus the Blades.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Sheffield United
David De Gea will start in between the sticks for the Red Devils looking to keep his fourth clean sheet of this campaign. Solskjaer will likely opt for his preferred defensive pairing of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire as both centre-halves focus on keeping things stable at the back versus the Blades this weekend.
Luke Shaw is a major doubt and is unlikely to be risked in this game. So Brandon Williams could once again get the nod to start in the left-back position ahead of Ashley Young, who might have to be content with a place on the bench.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka should keep his place as the right-back. The ex-Crystal Palace defensive ace needs to be more productive going forward. It could be a tricky contest for the Man United defenders as they will be up against an in-form Lys Mousset, who has scored two goals and provided three assists in his past four starts in the English top-flight.
Scott McTominay is a significant concern for this game. Solskjaer will have to wait before deciding whether to play the English prospect alongside Fred at the centre of the park. Both players will hope to anchor the midfield and protect the Man United backline.
The talented trio of Marcus Rashford, Andreas Pereira and Daniel James will probably feature just ahead of them as part of Solsjaer’s attack. They will be responsible for doing most of the damage in the Sheffield half.
Both Pereira and Rashford managed to get their names on the scoresheet versus Brighton and Hove Albion before the international break which should give them some confidence heading into this encounter away at South Yorkshire.
Barring any late injuries, Anthony Martial will lead the charge for the Mancunian giants up top. He has formed a mutually beneficial partnership with Rashford so both attackers would look to interchange passes with each other to try and breakdown the Sheffield defence on Sunday.
Both Mason Greenwood and Juan Mata will have to be content with a spot on the bench but they might get an opportunity to make an impact in the game if required.
