Manchester United team news: Manchester United will take on Everton at Goodison Park, and we take a look at Man Utd predicted line up for the clash.
Everton will host Manchester United at Goodison Park as the side aims to secure a Champions League qualification for the next season.
Solskjaer’s and his men faced a massive downfall ever since the win against Paris Saint Germain in the second leg of the Champions League’s round-of-16.
Manchester United suffered defeat to Wolves in the FA Cup quarterfinal, and were knocked out in the Champions League by Barcelona. Moreover, the side failed to score a single goal across both the legs.
Solskjaer will now aim to bring Manchester United to winning ways as a top-4 position is all there is to play for now. We take a look at the side’s predicted line up vs Everton.
Man Utd predicted line up vs Everton:
Goalkeeper: David De Gea
The Spanish goalkeeper committed a huge mistake in the second leg against Barcelona, which strengthened the host side’s position in the game. However, even when De Gea hasn’t had his best season at Old Trafford, he continues to remain a key part of the side and is expected to start against Everton.
Defence: Dalot, Smalling, Lindelof, Rojo
While I won’t be surprised if Young starts again, it is difficult to put him in the starting XI after his performance against Barcelona across both the legs. The Manchester United defender was easily the worst player on the pitch at Camp Nou, and I expect Solskjaer to bench him even as he returns from a one-match suspension.
Luke Shaw will be out of this game as he serves the ban. Marcos Rojo played in the previous PL game against West Ham and is expected to retain his place.
Midfield: McTominay, Fred, Pogba
Paul Pogba has been underwhelming in the last few weeks, and fans are slowly losing patience with the midfielder. However, Solskjaer believes in Pogba and would want the player to bring his A-game at Goodison Park.
McTominay and Fred are expected to be the other two players in the midfield.
Forward: Alexis, Rashford, Lukaku
Alexis Sanchez may have played for only 10 minutes since his return from injury, but was more clinical than Anthony Martial against Barcelona. I expect Solskjaer to put faith in the Chilean’s abilities and give him the last run to prove himself in Manchester United’s colours.
Romelu Lukaku was on the bench and the side missed his physicality against Barcelona. He is expected to return to the side, with Marcus Rashford up-front.
Manchester United predicted line up vs Everton:
De Gea; Dalot, Smalling, Lindelof, Rojo; McTominay, Fred, Pogba; Alexis, Rashford, Lukaku
