Our predicted Man Utd XI for a pretty important game vs West Ham United is now in.
Manchester United’s mixed bag of results continues. After a stunning derby day victory, the Red Devils would play poorly against AC Milan, lucky to come away from Old Trafford with a draw.
Next up is a potential stumbling block against a West Ham side who are in stunning form at the moment. Credit to David Moyes and that coaching staff, although they’ll be without United loanee Jesse Lingard for this one.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has some serious selection problems of his own. The Norwegian could potentially be without as many as ten regular first-teamers for this one – leaving him with the bare bones to choose from.
Anyway, let’s get right into the team and see how things are shaping up…
Check out the predicted Man Utd XI in full here:
Dean Henderson will keep his place in goal, purely because David de Gea will not be available due to quarantine rules.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka will play at right-back, with Luke Shaw starting over on the left-hand side. Harry Maguire will start and captain his United, partnering Victor Lindelof, who himself is touch-and-go due to a persistent back issue.
Scott McTominay will be playing here, purely for his mobility, energy and physicality. Fred starts because there’s no other senior option aside from Nemanja Matic. Bruno Fernandes completes the midfield three.
Again, the front three pretty much picks itself due to injuries. Mason Greenwood leads the line in the absence of both Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial. Daniel James starts over on the left in place of the injured Marcus Rashford, while Amad Diallo is given a first start in United colours.
There’s no doubt going to be slim-pickings in terms of game-changers off the bench, too. Shola Shoretire, anyone…?
