Man Utd predicted the line-up against Young Boys

6

Manchester United are quickly back in action when the Champions League group stage ends this week, with Young Boys as the visitors at Old Trafford in Ralf Rangnick’s first European match in charge.

The new interim manager oversaw a promising 1-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday, during which United appeared to be much improved tactically and lined up in what can best be described as a 4-2-2-2 formation.

Rangnick is keen to look at more of his team in a gaming environment and has confirmed that he intends to make a number of changes for this one. Here’s a look at how the team could line up …

Dean Henderson (GK) – A summer attack by COVID-19 ruined his chances of taking the number one jersey from David de Gea and this will only be his second first team appearance of the season.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB) – Has suddenly genuine competition from a resurrected Diogo Dalot but will have an opportunity to claim a place here.

Eric Bailly (CB) – With Harry Maguire rested, the Ivorian will get his fifth start of the season so far. He needs a big achievement.

Victor Lindelof (CB) – Rangnick could choose the home-grown star Teden Mengi but perhaps prefers not to tinker too much. The youngster can appear later in the match if the circumstances are right.

Alex Telles (LB) – The Brazilian is enjoying a good run in the team at the moment, which gives Luke Shaw much-needed rest and time to recover.

Scott McTominay (CM) – Has probably not been the best this semester due to an injury that disrupted his preseason. This is an important opportunity to continue to build their match sharpness.

Nemanja Matic (CM) – The veteran becomes team captain in Harry Maguire’s absence and has already confirmed that he plans to take home the armband to be framed as a memory of the honor.

Jadon Sancho (AM) – Started against Crystal Palace but the potential absence of Jesse Lingard means that there is every reason for him to also start here after much improved form recently.Donny van de Beek (AM) – Started in the last Champions League match and has been off the bench in five Premier League matches in a row. This is a great chance for him to prove himself.

Mason Greenwood (ST) – Got 25 minutes off the bench on Sunday for his first intervention since testing positive for coronavirus last month. Needs minutes to rebuild their match condition.

Anthony Elanga (ST) – The teenager has been in top form at U23 and UEFA Youth League level this season and immediately got a chance from the bench by Rangnick this weekend.
