Manchester United will face Sheriff Tiraspol as they welcome them to Old Trafford on Thursday night to secure their place in the Knockout stages of the Europa League. The Red Devils come into the match on the back of a last-gasp 1-1 draw against Chelsea in the Premier League. On the other hand, Sheriff Tiraspol suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Petrocub.
Manchester United Vs Sheriff Tiraspol: Talking Tactics
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 replace Casemiro in midweek while Marcus Rashford leads the line against the opposition.
The visitors’ coach Stjepan Tomas handed in his resignation before the away encounter. However, they could line up in a 3-4-3 formation allowing Felipe Vizeu to lead the charge against the Red Devils while Dumitru Celeadnic operates in goal for his side.
The Red Devils will remain without Raphael Varane (knee), Axel Tuanzebe (unspecified), Brandon Williams (unspecified) and Donny van de Beek (muscle) as all of them recover from their respective injuries. Meanwhile, Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial could be available for this home encounter after returning to training.
Manchester United Predicted XI
De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Sancho; Rashford
Sheriff’s does not have injury-borne problems but rather disciplinary ones as right-back Armel Zohouri will sit this one out after being sent off in the 3-0 loss to Real Sociedad on matchday four. On the contrary, Iyayi Atiemwen and Moussa Kyabou are both eligible to return after serving suspensions of their own last time out.
Sheriff Tiraspol Predicted XI
Celeadnic; Kiki, Radeljic, Kpozo; Guedes, Badolo, Salifu, Heron; Akanbi, Vizeu, Atiemwen
