However, his squad is plagued by injuries. This, predicting a Man Utd lineup has always been a challenging one this season. So, how will Erik ten Hag lineup his Manchester United team against Spurs? Here is the Man Utd predicted lineup vs Tottenham.
Man Utd predicted lineup vs Tottenham - Premier League
Let's start this Man Utd predicted lineup vs Tottenham with the formation that Erik ten Hag will play which is expected to be a 4-2-3-1 that he usually plays. Andre Onana will play his last game before he leaves for international duty and thus, Ten Hag will start his preferred goalkeeper for sure.
In the defense of Manchester United, Diogo Dalot is expected to start as the right-back as the Red Devils are playing at Old Trafford and Ten Hag would want a more attacking full-back. Maguire is expected to return for this game however, the Dutch manager would go with Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans as the center backs as the duo has done a decent job together. Luke Shaw will come back after recovering from injury and thus, he will be slotted into the left-back position.
One of the biggest problems for Manchester United is they are struggling to control the midfield in most games. However, Kobbie Mainoo has impressed everyone and he will be starting this game along with Christian Eriksen who will bring calmness in the midfield against Spurs. Man Utd captain Bruno Fernandes will start as the attacking midfielder.
In the attack of Man Utd, Marcus Rashford will start from the left as Ten Hag trusts the English winger a lot. The summer signing Rasmus Hojlund will start even though he is having a tough time in the Premier League. Alejandro Garnacho impressed everyone on the right against Wigan in the FA Cup and thus, will start as the right winger instead of Antony in this game.
Man Utd predicted lineup vs Tottenham: Onana; Dalot, Varane, Evans, Shaw; McTominay, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
