ETH ditches Martial, “magic” £73m gem unleashed in 2 changes: Predicted Man United XI

Posted by

Tonight marks Manchester United’s return to Premier League play, and they have a challenging match ahead of them with a trip to West Ham United.

The Red Devils will be looking to quickly recover after losing their most recent match to Brighton and Hove Albion in overtime. Given that the conflict occurred on Thursday, their recovery has been quick while they stay in the south.

That recent outcome added yet another puzzling outcome to their odd run, in which Erik ten Hag’s club has been helpless to regain their footing. Early in April, they enjoyed three straight victories, but since then, across all competitions, they have only experienced success twice in regular time.

Despite this, former United manager David Moyes will take on his former team and try to snap his team’s three-game losing streak.

It will be a delicate balancing act to keep a good team out while rotating crucial assets, especially with injuries, fitness, and a short turnover to take into account, but a win would consolidate their hold on the top four.

What lineup will Manchester United choose when facing West Ham?

There may be up to two adjustments following the Seagulls’ loss.

David De Gea, who has played every minute of their league season thus far, is anticipated to stay in goal.

As Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane are most likely still out, he might line up behind a back four that hasn’t changed. Harry Maguire’s hesitation to reenter the starting lineup says a lot about how the team feels about the club captain.

Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof will now team up once more, accompanied by Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot.

Marcel Sabitzer could benefit from Fred’s poor performance from his previous outing, as evidenced by his 6.8 rating, by making a start. Every game is an additional audition for the Austrian, who is obviously trying to ensure that his move to Old Trafford becomes permanent.

He will appear behind the constant Bruno Fernandes and next to Casemiro.

Anthony Martial might join Marcus Rashford on the bench as a result of his carelessness in the previous game, which saw him receive just 36 touches overall.

The Hammers’ center-backs may not be able to handle such speed and deadly movement, but it would allow Jadon Sancho to reappear alongside him.

The £73 million guy, once referred to as “magic” by sports journalist and expert JJ Bull, would make a great counterpoint to Antony, who would undoubtedly inhabit the other wing.

The predicted Manchester United starting lineup (4-3-3) would be De Gea; Wan-Bissaka; Lindelof; Shaw; Dalot; Fernandes; Casemiro; Sabitzer; Antony; Rashford; and Sancho.
