Here is our predicted starting lineup for Manchester United’s matchup against Sheffield United this weekend. Erik ten Hag will feel motivated going into this weekend’s match following Manchester United’s encouraging injury news earlier this week.
However, one blow will be the absence of Casemiro who is injured. Although many are seeing him being missing as a positive instead.
Coming up against the league’s worst team in Sheffield United, this could be a huge opportunity for Ten Hag to lay a marker down.
ere is our predicted XI…
Manchester United predicted XI v Sheffield United
So, looking to build upon the back of Manchester United’s win over Brentford before the international break, we expect Ten Hag goes full strength.
That includes a hopefully rejuvenated Andre onana in goal. Onana will be keen to put his mistakes behind him and begin to show his class.
In order to do so, he will need to field a strong line-up which is exactly how we see him going.
Diogo Dalot will stay at right-back, and United should finally have a natural option there with the return of Sergio Reguilon. Raphael Varane, starting at center defender, should be fit to go after Ten Hag announced via club media that he was prepared to make a comeback. Harry Maguire, who had a fantastic performance for England against Italy, was next to Varane. Sofyan Amrabat is the obvious choice to start in midfield now that Casemiro is out. Mason Mount will try to keep getting better on either side of the Moroccan. The other midfield player, Bruno Fernandes, is returning from a stellar stint with Portugal
Antony should completely return to the right. Bruno can now return to midfield thanks to his return, which should help United. Marcus Rashford, on the left, who has been incredibly underwhelming this season, ought to take solace in his England goal as a confidence boost. Rasmus Hojlund, an attacking player looking to score his first Premier League goal, should start again.
