Two key changes – Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Atletico

United Old Trafford

Manchester United defeated Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend and will now focus on the Champions League contest vs Atletico Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick on Saturday and it must be remembered that in the European Cup, Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have never been able to knock out a side with the Portuguese superstar.

As far as the team news is concerned, we can expect Ralf Rangnick to make at least two key changes in the XI that started at the weekend.

Marcus Rashford had an off game and in his place, Anthony Elanga, who scored in the first leg against the Rojiblancos at the Wanda Metropolitano, must start.

Bruno Fernandes, who missed the game vs Spurs after contracting COVID-19, is now available. So, the Seleccao playmaker should start in the No. 10 role behind Ronaldo. Jadon Sancho has been brilliant in recent weeks and the England international must start on the left wing.

As far as the midfield is concerned, Paul Pogba should move back into the center and partner Brazilian international, Fred.

In the back-line, the likes of Dalot, Telles, Varane and captain Maguire would likely retain their places in front of David De Gea.

Here is how Man Utd could line up vs Atletico:
