Manchester United Football Club are back! The Red Devils certainly could have asked for a easier game, with Tottenham Hotspur away likely to be a huge test, particularly with Jose Mourinho in charge.
That said, the Red Devils were in fine form before play was halted due to COVID-19. No doubt they’ll be looking to pick up from where they left off.
Anyway, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first starting XI in 102 days has been confirmed, with the Baby Faced Assassin going for his now customary 4-3-3 formation…
David de Gea starts in between the sticks, on what will definitely be a busy evening for the superstar Spaniard.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka gets the nod at right-back, with Luke Shaw starting over on the left-hand side. Harry Maguire will wear the captain’s armband, with Victor Lindelof named as his defensive partner.
Scott McTominay sits at the base of midfield, no doubt his energy and tenacity will be vital if United are to get a positive result. Fred was in the form of his life before lockdown so it’s right that he plays here. Bruno Fernandes obviously starts.
Marcus Rashford makes a return following that pretty severe back injury. Presumably, he’ll play from off the left-flank with Daniel James operating from the right. Anthony Martial leads the line.
In terms of quality on the bench, you have Paul Pogba making a return, with Mason Greenwood, Eric Bailly, Odion Ighalo, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic all named as subs…
