Manchester United suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of Everton at the weekend. Next up, the Red Devils will collide against rivals Man City, who have won their last 10 games in the Premier League.
United are unbeaten in the last 14 league games at Old Trafford but can they stop the high flying Citizens? Another defeat for Solskjaer’s men would seriously hamper their chances of finishing in the top four.
As far as Man Utd’s team news is concerned, we can expect the Norwegian boss to make a few key changes in the squad that started vs the Toffees on Sunday.
In the goal, De Gea was poor vs Barca and Everton but he would likely retain his place in the starting XI.
In front of the Spanish shot stopper, Lindelof and Smalling should start in the central defense. Young could return to start in the right back position. Luke Shaw should return from suspension to start in the left back role.
As far as the midfield is concerned, Matic was terrible at Goodison Park and in his place, McTominay should return to the starting lineup. The youngster should partner Fred and Pogba in the center of the park.
Martial was woeful vs Everton and Alexis Sanchez could get the nod to start ahead of the French international vs the Sky Blues. Lingard should return and replace Lukaku to start on the right wing and Rashford should start as the main center forward.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Man City:
