How Manchester United could line up against Leicester City

How Manchester United could line up against Leicester City

Head coach Erik ten Hag will give consideration to making changes to his Manchester United starting lineup for Thursday’s Premier League fixture with Leicester City.

United have catapulted themselves up the top-flight standings courtesy of back-to-back victories over Liverpool and Southampton respectively.

However, with Arsenal the visitors to Old Trafford three days after the game with the Foxes, Ten Hag will take several things into consideration before selecting his team.

With Casemiro expected to start against the Gunners at the weekend, Ten Hag may want to hand the former Real Madrid man some minutes from the opening whistle.

That would result in either Scott McTominay or Christian Eriksen dropping out of the side, with there being pros and cons to either player remaining in the first XI.

Depending on whether Ten Hag wants to manage Raphael Varane‘s fitness, Harry Maguire could be considered for a recall in the centre of defence.

Although the front quartet could stay the same, Anthony Martial may be an option after an Achilles issue, as could Cristiano Ronaldo should he remain at Old Trafford.

While Antony will be a United player before the game in the East Midlands, his participation is unlikely due to work permit paperwork and a lack of time training with his new teammates.

Manchester United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen; Elanga, Fernandes, Sancho; Rashford
