Predicted XI vs Leeds United: Crucial decision to be made at centre-back – Man United News And Transfer News


Manchester United will welcome Raphael Varane and Nemanja Matic again to tomorrow’s matchday squad for the Premier League conflict towards Leeds United.

Nevertheless, Edinson Cavani remains to be fighting a groin downside and with sickness and won’t be accessible.

When it comes to workforce choice, Varane’s availability poses a dilemma for supervisor Ralf Rangnick.

Varane is mostly recognised to be United’s greatest centre again and will come again into the facet. The query might be subsequently who will make means? Harry Maguire is the captain however has come underneath fierce criticism for his latest performances. Victor Lindelof has accomplished little fallacious.

The remainder of the defence is more likely to be unchanged, with Diogo Dalot and Luke Shaw at full again and David de Gea in objective.

In midfield, Matic’s availability will give the boss an choice however Scott McTominay will most likely get to proceed within the holding midfield position. The opposite midfield berths shall be taken up by two of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Fred.

After one of many longest objective droughts of his profession and the longest in 11 and a half years (587 minutes), Ronaldo netted with an outstanding strike on Tuesday towards Brighton and the floodgates might properly re-open for him now.

Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford will most likely flank him, though Anthony Elanga and Jesse Lingard are choices if Rangnick feels both must be rested.

With all that in thoughts, that is our predicted XI for the journey to Elland Highway:
