4-3-3 Manchester United’s planned line-up vs Sheriff
David de Gea is expected to start in the next clash. The Spanish keeper will be looking to perform well on Thursday and keep a clean sheet.
Rafael Varane is set to start in the heart of United’s defence, with Lisandro Martinez moving into right centre-back. Diogo Dalot is expected to start at right-back, while Tyrell Malacia will occupy the other side as left-back.
New signing Casemiro is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, while Bruno Fernandes will be the attacking midfielder.
Christian Erickson Still starting from United this week, it’s an understatement to rely heavily on the Danish international’s creative work if the Red Devils hope to win on Thursday.
Scott McTominay will have to settle on the bench, but he can evolve in the second half if necessary.
Jadon Sancho and Antony will occupy the flanks, threatening Yuriy Vernydub’s men on the right and left respectively.
Marcus Rashford is expected to lead Manchester United in midweek. The England international’s deft movement in front of goal could cause a lot of problems for United’s backline.
Cristiano Ronaldo could come off the bench as a hard-hitting substitute within forty-five seconds of the game.
