Manchester United predicted lineup vs Wolves – Premier League
Manchester United return to action on Saturday when they host Wolves in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
Consecutive defeats to Brighton and West Ham have loosened United’s grip on a top four place, with Newcastle leapfrogging them in the table, while Liverpool continue to make ground from behind.
Erik ten Hag needs a win to settle the nerves of fans expecting to be in the Champions League next season. Here’s the side he could pick.
GK: David de Gea – A four-time United player of the year but also a goalkeeper who has been sharp decline for a good few years now. New contract or no new contract, a new stopper is needed.
RB: Diogo Dalot – The more attacking Dalot may be a sharper tactical choice at right back here, even with Aaron Wan-Bissaka making big strides in recent months.
CB: Victor Lindelof – Continues to fill in during the absence of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez.
CB: Luke Shaw – Could make his tenth starting appearance at centre back this season on Saturday with Harry Maguire unlikely to be resurrected.
LB: Tyrell Malacia – 23-year-old Malacia is yet to provide an assist in the league or Europe for United since his move from Feyenoord.
CM: Casemiro – The effects of this long season are even causing Casemiro problems, with the Brazilian looking sluggish in recent outings.
CM: Christian Eriksen – Recently won the ‘Comeback Of The Year’ accolade at the 2023 Laureus World Sports Awards.
RW: Antony – With United failing to score in their last two games, Antony needs to rectify his poor final ball and start contributing in attack.
AM: Bruno Fernandes – With only one goal in his last ten games, United could use a trademark performance from their Portuguese star.
LW: Marcus Rashford – Another United player whose shooting boots have been misplaced, though only Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, Ivan Toney and Mohamed Salah have scored more Premier League goals this season.
ST: Anthony Martial – Came on against West Ham and went close on a couple of occasions.
