Casemiro starts – Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Southampton

Erik ten Hag - Manchester United manager

Manchester United defeated arch-rivals Liverpool to earn their first victory of the season and will face Southampton today.

As far as the team news is concerned, Erik ten Hag may make only one change in the XI that featured against the Merseysiders on Monday night.

The backline performed really well in the absence of captain, Harry Maguire. Liverpool had 70% of the possession but found it hard to break Man Utd’s defense.

Therefore, Varane and Martinez should retain their positions in the central defense, on the other hand, Dalot and Malacia may feature again in the fullback positions.

De Gea was impressive in the last league game and the Spaniard would likely feature again.

Big money signing, Casemiro, should get the nod to make his debut for the Red Devils. The Brazilian defensive midfielder could start with Danish creative midfielder, Eriksen, in the center of the park.

In the attack, Ronaldo only played as a second-half sub vs the Anfield club. Keeping in view that his future is up in the air (linked with Napoli), the Portuguese international should not be part of the starting XI.

In such a scenario, Rashford may feature in the No. 9 role again and the likes of Sancho, Elanga and Fernandes must start behind the English forward.

Here is Man Utd’s strongest lineup vs Southampton:
