Manchester United will be aiming to return to winning ways when they face Sheriff Tiraspol on the road in today’s Europa League group stage clash.
The Red Devils were far from convincing in their competition opener against Real Sociedad last week where they lost by a controversial penalty goal.
Erik ten Hag made several changes which seemed to backfire, and he may revert to his regulars with no more games before the international break.
Martin Dubravka has not travelled with the team with an apparent injury but regardless of this, we fancy David de Gea to continue between the sticks.
The Spaniard had a dismal start to the season with a few blunders, but has looked the player of old over the past five games across all competitions.
The backline should be similar to the Arsenal win this month. Diogo Dalot and Tyrell Malacia are expected to start from the right and left-back positions.
Luke Shaw has returned to full training following his foot injury, but he may not be risked from the off, considering his fitness record in recent times.
At the heart of the defence, it should be a straightforward choice with Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez replacing Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire in the XI.
Casemiro and Fred started against Sociedad with the latter in a more advanced role. However, the duo struggled to dominate the proceedings with frustrating displays.
It won’t be a surprise if they drop to the bench today. We fancy Scott McTominay to be reinstated in the line-up alongside Christian Eriksen, who plays centrally nowadays.
Bruno Fernandes should return in his preferred number 10 spot with Jadon Sancho and Antony widely expected to slot into the right and left wing positions respectively.
Marcus Rashford picked up a muscle injury against Arsenal this month. With him and Anthony Martial out, Cristiano Ronaldo looks on course to lead the line again.
The Portuguese star was far from effective against Sociedad last week, but will be aiming to redeem himself with a much-awaited first goal of the campaign.
