Manchester United will face off against Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Thursday night as they try to secure a victory on the road in the Premier League. The Red Devils managed to earn a hard-fought 6-7 win on penalties after playing out a 0-0 draw against Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup semifinals recently. Hence, they will be eager to keep their momentum going in midweek.
Erik ten Hag will set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could make one change to his first XI for this game. Marcel Sabitzer will get a chance to impress from the start as Bruno Fernandes is a major doubt for this clash in North London.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Tottenham Hotspur
David de Gea will function in between the sticks for Man United after keeping a clean sheet versus the Seagulls recently. Victor Lindelof will play alongside Luke Shaw at the heart of ten Hag’s defence as they look to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Diogo Dalot will fill in as the left-back while Aaron Wan-Bissaka hopes to catch the eye on the other flank as the right-back. Both of them will be given the license to express themselves in the Tottenham half so that they can create some decent chances from the wide areas.
Tyrell Malacia will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the left-back position.
Christian Eriksen and Casemiro will operate as the holding midfielders as they focus on winning the 50-50 battles for the Red Devils at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Marcus Rashford, Marcel Sabitzer and Antony will function just ahead of them as part of the Man United attack. All three of them need to be at the top of their game if Man United are to secure a convincing win in London later this week.
Fred and Anthony Elanga will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if ten Hag decides to call upon their services.
Anthony Martial will lead the line for the Mancunian giants in the final third. The French sensation needs a goal to boost his confidence, so this game versus Spurs would be a good opportunity for him to showcase what he is capable of in the final third.
Wout Weghorst will be available for selection on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the latter stages if required.
