Manchester United put in a fantastic performance to beat Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur in the midweek Premier League contest.
Next up, the Red Devils will collide against Man City at the Etihad. The Sky Blues did the double over United in the last campaign and won their last PL game 4-1 away from home against Burnley.
Transfer: Club prepared to offer £42million & attacker to Manchester United – Report
The Old Trafford club were impressive against Spurs and consistently attacked them but it will be intriguing to see if they can do the same against The Citizens in their own backyard.
As far as the team news is concerned, Solskjaer might make a few changes in the lineup that started vs Spurs on Wednesday night.
In the back-line, veteran Ashley Young should be replaced with Luke Shaw. The 34-year-old star did well against Man Utd but taking his age into consideration, it should not seem feasible to start him in two games in the space of four days.
In the center of the park, Fred and McTominay did well vs the north Londoners and should retain their starting places.
In the attacking third, experienced Juan Mata could return and replace Jesse Lingard to play in the central attacking midfield role. The likes of James and in-form Rashford should start in the wide attacking positions behind Greenwood, who should start once again in the absence of injured Martial.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Man City:
I think experience matters, playing Ashley would be better option for me, due to Shaw was out bcoz of injury so you can see even fitness is not as good as the one he had before
I would prefer Luke Shaw cause he is good at both defensive and attacking rather than his counterpart.
