Manchester United will clash heads with Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, hoping to pick up a positive result on their home turf. The visitors will be coming into the match on the back of a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Everton, whereas the Red Devils recorded a 0-0 stalemate with Newcastle United on Sunday.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Scott McTominay looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven in midweek.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs Tottenham Hotspur
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 Wednesday.
Raphael Varane is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with new signing Lisandro Martinez slotting into the right-centre back position. Diogo Dalot should start at the right-back position, whereas Tyrell Malacia will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
Casemiro is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Scott McTominay will slot in as the central midfielder.
Bruno Fernandes 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 Portugal international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Wednesday.
Fred 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.
Antony and Jadon Sancho will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Antonio Conte’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Following a rest, Marcus Rashford is expected to lead the line for Manchester United in midweek. The England international’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Spurs’ defence which has conceded five 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.
