Goalkeeper and Defence


GK – David Raya – there are still concerns about the Spaniard’s ability. He was lucky that he didn’t give a goal away against Bournemouth¬†last week after a poor punch. Raya will be hoping for a quiet evening at Old Trafford.

RB – Ben White – Marcus Rashford is back fit so it could be a difficult game for the fullback, who didn’t cope well with the forward in the reverse fixture at the Emirates earlier this season.


CB – William Saliba – the Frenchman is unlikely to be troubled too much, with Rasmus Hojlund’s form having been rather poor. The Dane has scored just once in his last 9 games.

CB – Gabriel – the 26-year-old needs to find a bit more consistency. He wasn’t particularly great against the Cherries and his team cannot afford for him to make any mistakes on Sunday.

LB – Takehiro Tomiyasu – questions were raised about the fullback’s fitness when he wasn’t pictured in training earlier this week but he is expected to be in contention to start this weekend.
