Manchester United will be in Europa League action against Real Betis on the road this evening.
The Red Devils won the first leg of the round of 16 tie by a comfortable 4-1 scoreline and they should be favourites to progress to the quarter-final.
David de Gea is assured of his place between the sticks. He was far from impressive in the first leg at Old Trafford but made amends with key saves in the 0-0 draw against Southampton.
Erik ten Hag could make a few changes to the defence. Diogo Dalot could replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back after being an unused substitute at the weekend.
Raphael Varane could be rested. Harry Maguire should get a rare start alongside Lisandro Martinez. Luke Shaw is expected to keep his place at left-back.
In midfield, Casemiro is likely to start despite being a booking away from a one-match ban. He should be partnered by Fred, who was only a late substitute on Sunday.
In attack, there could be a couple of changes. With Antony out with an illness, Facundo Pellistri could make his first start for the club after six substitute outings.
Like Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes is just one booking from the yellow card limit for a suspension, but Ten Hag has confirmed that he won’t be rested for the same reason.
Hence, the Portuguese will set to start in the number 10 role. Jadon Sancho could start on the left wing with Marcus Rashford being rested while Wout Weghorst will lead the line.
Predicted Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Maguire, Martinez, Shaw; Fred, Casemiro; Pellistri, Fernandes, Sancho; Weghorst.
