After the nightmare draw a couple of weeks ago, United will want revenge. Martial, Sancho and Sabitizer are all in contention. However, previous games show that Erik ten Hag doesn’t like to make wholesale changes to winning sides. Here’s what may happen:
DeGea will return behind United’s best available back four of Varane, Marinez, Shaw and Wan-Bissaka. The doubt is Varane who, although fit, still needs his game time managed. If he doesn’t start, then Lindelof or Maguire will step in.
In midfield, it’s probably too soon for Sabitzer to start. We all remember how long it took Casemiro to cement a starting place and we could see a similar process with Sabitzer slowly eased into contention. For now, our strongest midfield three is Casemiro, Fred and Fernandes.
It’s hard to see past a front three of Rashford, Weghorst and Antony. It may be too soon for Martial and Sancho to start games but expect to see both make an appearance at some stage.
Predicted Score: 2-1
United will have learned their lesson from the away fixture and grind out a professional win against a dogged Crystal Palace.
