Our predicted MUFC XI for the game vs Brighton & Hove Albion is now in…
Manchester United Football Club plays their penultimate Premier League game of the season on the South Coast this Saturday evening.
For Ralf Rangnick, the season is winding down to a close disappointingly, though that’s largely through no fault of his own.
With just two games left, I’d love to see the German tinker the side somewhat, giving us fans a glimpse into the future by giving one or two youngsters their chance. If that doesn’t happen this weekend, then it will not happen this season…
United can only reach a total of 64 points with two wins. Arsenal have 63, with four games remaining. Top four simply isn’t happening so let’s see what we have going forward.
Anyway, after much deliberation, we reckon Rangnick will put trust in the young starlets and finally give them a chance to see what they can do.
Check out our predicted MUFC XI vs Brighton in full here:
In goal, David de Gea starts. The Spaniard has been up and down this season, though you do feel like he has a place in Erik ten Hag’s startling line-up going forward.
In terms of the centre-back pairing, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof looked like a good partnership in the last game against Brentford. I’d love to see more of that combo. Diogo Dalot starts at right-back, with young Alvaro Fernandez finally given his opportunity to start in the left-back position.
Fred is now back and available so I assume we’ll see him here. United have absolutely missed the Brazilian’s mobility and energy. Scott McTominay will play as per usual, with Bruno Fernandes also named as a starter here.
Cristiano Ronaldo leads the line, with the Portugal international ending the season in simply spectacular form. Anthony Elanga has been another bright spark in recent weeks so he deserves to play. Then comes the man of the moment; Alejandro Garnacho. We’ve all been begging to see what he can do and this could well be the time.
