Erik names team for Galatasaray game
Hannibal – who played well as a starter in the wins over Burnley and Palace, in the Carabao Cup – returns to the side in place of Facundo Pellistri, who is on the bench.
“One change we thought [to] bring that energy,” Erik said when explaining the switch and why Hannibal hadn’t featured on Saturday.
“But also Hannibal’s a very young player. He is not able to play three times in a week, he is not at that experience. So we want to keep him in that energy.”
It looks as though Sofyan Amrabat will continue as an auxiliary left-back, as United’s three first-choice left-backs are all still out injured, while Bruno Fernandes or Mason Mount look best-placed to start on the right of the attack.
Antony is back in the matchday squad, with the Brazilian named as a substitute, and former United winger Wilfried Zaha starts for the visitors.
