It appears unthinkable that Erik ten Hag will have the ability to hold the identical XI that began the earlier Premier League match, as his Manchester United facet head into tomorrow’s conflict with West Ham at Previous Trafford.
An damage, sickness and scandal-ridden season like no different has led to fixed enforced chopping and altering of the Dutchman’s facet, however as issues stand (say it quietly in order to not jinx it) there are not any contemporary doubts main into the sport and he ought to, as soon as once more, have the ability to subject what he believes is his strongest beginning facet.
This implies Andre Onana in purpose, regardless of growing doubts over his kind and a good debut from his backup, Altay Bayindir, two matches in the past.
In defence, Diogo Dalot will proceed at proper again. He appears to be the primary selection possibility once more lately, though Aaron Wan-Bissaka, in any case, is fighting a leg downside.

On the wings, Antony’s poor kind means he’s more likely to proceed on the bench, with Alejandro Garnacho on the precise wing and Marcus Rashford on the left. Amad Diallo and Omari Forson are different choices whereas Facu Pellistri, Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood are all out on mortgage.
