Bailly and Rashford start, 4-2-3-1: Strongest Predicted Man United lineup vs Sevilla

Manchester United entertain Sevilla in the round of 16, second-leg of the Champions League on Tuesday night. The Red Devils played a goalless draw during the away-leg in Seville, and they now have the home advantage to bank upon as they seek to progress to the quarter-final stage of the elite competition.

Formation: 4-2-3-1


David de Gea has had another top season with the Red Devils, and he was rather unfortunate to have conceded against Liverpool via an Eric Bailly own-goal. The Spain international is certain to start between the sticks.

In defence, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young are now the undisputed first-choice for the right-back and left-back positions respectively, and Jose Mourinho is likely to bank upon their experience for the Sevilla game.

Eric Bailly made a strong return to the starting lineup for the Premier League clash versus Liverpool, and the Ivorian is likely to maintain his position alongside Chris Smalling at the heart of the backline.

With Paul Pogba deemed doubtful, Mourinho could stick with a 4-2-3-1 formation for the European outing. Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay are likely to feature in midfield with Marouane Fellaini offering reinforcement from the bench.

Further forward, Marcus Rashford is more or less certain to play on the left-wing after his match-winning brace against Liverpool. He and Anthony Martial brought more intensity in the away-leg through their cameo appearances.

Other than this, Juan Mata may retain his position on the right-wing with Alexis Sanchez in the support striker role, where he impressed with his quick link-up play against Liverpool last weekend.

Romelu Lukaku could not continue his scoring streak against Liverpool, but the Belgian contributed towards both Marcus Rashford goals with the opener seeing him provide a headed-assist. He is certain to lead the line.
