Sanchez and Pogba start, 4-3-3: Predicted Manchester United lineup to face Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester United face-off against Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final at the Wembley Stadium. The Red Devils returned to winning ways with a 2-0 triumph over Bournemouth and this should  reignite their confidence ahead of the Spurs game.

Formation: 4-3-3


David de Gea attained his 17th Premier League clean sheet of the campaign on Wednesday night and he is now in pole position to claim his maiden Golden Glove award. The Spaniard should start in goal with Cup regular Sergio Romero still on the sidelines.

In defence, Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young are likely to retain their full-back positions after being rested in midweek whilst Eric Bailly should pair up alongside Chris Smalling in central defence following his extended absence from the starting lineup.

Nemanja Matic has made the most number of starts than any United player this term and the Serbian is certain to start in the holding midfield role with Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera featuring either side of him in a three-man midfield.

Despite being benched on Wednesday, Alexis Sanchez could be preferred ahead of both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, and we are fancying the Chilean and Jesse Lingard occupy the left and right wing positions respectively with Romelu Lukaku leading the line.

Lukaku celebrated his best-ever scoring season in midweek as he is notched his 27th goal, and his record in the FA Cup has been sublime this term, having scored at least once in each round of the competition.
