Manchester United are on a five game winning run at the moment under the management of interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Can they extend the run when they collide against highly flying Spurs on Sunday?
The Red Devils faced Reading in the FA Cup fixture in their last game and the manager opted to rest more than a few key players.
We can expect majority of the star players to return to the starting XI vs the north Londoners.
In my view, Alexis Sanchez should be given the nod to start. In the last PL game vs Newcastle, Martial was unimpressive and the Chilean returned to the squad to provide an assist. He registered another assist vs Reading as well.
We all know that Sanchez is a world class talent and perhaps he needs a game of a big magnitude like the one this weekend to get back to his best. The former Arsenal man should start with Lingard in the wide attacking positions behind Marcus Rashford.
In the midfield, Matic, Herrera and record signing Paul Pogba should return
As far as the defense is concerned, Young should start in the right back position. Lindelof should return to partner Jones in the central defense and Luke Shaw should return to start in the left back position.
Spanish star De Gea will likely return to replace Argentine international Sergio Romero in the goal. Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Spurs:
