Here’s the latest on Manchester United’s squad, injury updates, and the anticipated starting lineup ahead of their Premier League clash against Everton at Goodison Park.
Facing an Everton side fueled by a sense of injustice due to a recent ten-point deduction, Manchester United enters what promises to be a heated encounter on Sunday.
Everton’s slide into the relegation zone, coupled with protests against the Premier League, sets the stage for a charged atmosphere at Goodison Park.
Erik ten Hag’s side aims to capitalize on this situation, seeking a win that could propel them closer to the Champions League places.
Despite criticism, Manchester United remains in contention for a top-four finish, boasting four wins in their last five Premier League games.
Manchester United Team News:
Ten Hag faces a significant list of absentees for the upcoming clash. Casemiro (thigh), Lisandro Martinez (foot), Jonny Evans (thigh), Tyrell Malacia (knee), Amad Diallo (knee), and Facundo Pellistri (knock) are all ruled out.
Danish internationals Rasmus Hojlund and Christian Eriksen are also expected to miss the game due to thigh and knee injuries.
Jadon Sancho continues to be sidelined following a dispute with Ten Hag earlier in the season. Goalkeeper Andre Onana’s availability is uncertain as he undergoes late fitness checks after sustaining an abductor strain during international duty with Cameroon.
However, there’s positive news for the United boss as full-backs Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka return to training, likely to be available for selection.
Manchester United Predicted XI:
Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Reguilon; Amrabat, McTominay; Antony, Fernandes, Mount; Rashford
