Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes returns from suspension for Monday’s Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese missed the 3-1 win over Burnley in midweek after picking up five yellow cards but will be free to reclaim his rightful place in the first XI.
Ralf Rangnick is also hopeful of having Victor Lindelof back from COVID-19 infection, but Paul Pogba is out, and Eric Bailly is set to link up with the Ivory Coast team for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Raphael Varane is likely to displace Bailly alongside Harry Maguire in the heart of defence, where Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw will aim to hold their places despite pressure from Alex Telles and Diogo Dalot.
Nemanja Matic may also start if his legs can handle the quick turnaround, with Scott McTominay a surefire name for the first XI after his sweetly-struck opener in the win over Burnley.
With Fernandes back in the fold, Jadon Sancho could be the one to make way, with Mason Greenwood hopeful of featuring from the first whistle once again.
At a combined age of 70, Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani seem set to lead the charge once more, but the more youthful Marcus Rashford is ready to deputise if necessary.
Man United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Greenwood, McTominay, Matic, Fernandes; Ronaldo, Cavani
