Manchester United will lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a disappointing 4-1 loss to arch-rivals Manchester City whereas the Lilywhites recorded an emphatic 5-0 win over Everton on March 8.
Ryan Sessegnon (muscle) has emerged as a major doubt ahead of the weekend clash, whereas Oliver Skipp (groin) and Japhet Tanganga (knee) remain sidelined for the upcoming fixture.
Antonio Conte will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Sergio Reguilon looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.
3-4-3 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup Vs Manchester United
Hugo Lloris will operate between the sticks for the upcoming fixture. The France shot-stopper will be hoping to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.
Cristian Romero will form the centre-half partnership with Eric Dier, Ben Davies at the heart of Spurs’ backline.
Sergio Reguilon should start at the left-back position, whereas Matt Doherty will fill in on the other flank as the right-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back-four.
Rodrigo Bentancur will slot into the central midfield role, determined to set up some clear-cut goal scoring chances for the front men.
Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.
Harry Kane will lead the line for Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. The England international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the United defence that has conceded seven goals in their last five matches across all competitions.
Lucas Moura could come off the bench to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes of the match if needed.
