Manchester United will clash heads with Omonia on Thursday evening, hoping to pick up a positive result on match day 3 of the UEFA Europa League campaign. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of an embarrassing 6-3 loss to rivals Manchester City, whereas the home team recorded a 2-0 victory over Doxa on Saturday.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Casemiro looks likely to replace Scott McTominay in midweek.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs Omonia
David de Gea is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Thursday.
Victor Lindelof is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with Lisandro Martinez slotting into the right-centre back position. Diogo Dalot should start at the right-back position, whereas Luke Shaw will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
Casemiro is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Bruno Fernandes will slot in as the attacking midfielder.
Christian Eriksen remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Denmark international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Thursday.
Scott McTominay will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.
Anthony Elanga and Antony will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Neil Lennon’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Anthony Martial is expected to lead the line for Manchester United in midweek. The France international’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Omonia defence that has conceded seven goals in their last five matches across all competitions.
Cristiano Ronaldo could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
