Man United XI vs Tottenham: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest, and big Cristiano Ronaldo decision
Erik ten Hag must decide whether to rotate his Manchester United team for Wednesday’s game against Tottenham Hotspur, with the Red Devils facing three tough Premier League fixtures in just seven days.
The clash with Spurs is sandwiched between last Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle United and Saturday’s trip to Chelsea.
Therefore, Ten Hag may opt for freshness when selecting his team against Antonio Conte’s men.
In Sunday’s stalemate with the Magpies, Ten Hag’s side missed the influence of Christian Eriksen in the middle of the pitch, but he is likely to have recovered from injury in time to start.
The Dane might be joined by Scott McTominay in midfield, although Fred and Casemiro started against Newcastle.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo has started the last two up front but has failed to impress in either.
Marcus Rashford is set to return to the Manchester United starting line-up for Wednesday’s Premier League clash with Tottenham.
Erik ten Hag said the striker was suffering from a minor illness as he was benched for the draw at home to Newcastle, in which Cristiano Ronaldo was entrusted to start up top.
That goalless outing should see Rashford return although Anthony Martial remains a major doubt having sat out the game with a back injury, so soon after overcoming an Achilles problem.
Man United predicted XI to face Tottenham:
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, McTominay; Antony, Fernandes, Sancho; Rashford.
