Sanchez and Matic to start: Predicted 4-3-3 Manchester United XI to face Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester United must bounce back against Tottenham Hotspur after their disappointing loss at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend.

Tottenham arrive at Old Trafford after winning their opening games and we should be wary of the Spurs attack. Harry Kane has opened his account this season and the Londoners have a number of other quality players who could hurt us.

Romelu Lukaku got a goal in our loss against Brighton and we could see the return of a couple of players from injury into the starting XI.

United have to get back to winning ways and here is our predicted starting XI for the Red Devils.

Predicted Manchester United XI

Manager: Jose Mourinho

Formation: 4-3-3

David de Gea (GK)

There really is no doubt as to who is the No.1 keeper at United and the Spaniard should start against Spurs.

Ashley Young (RB)

Most of the defenders performed poorly against the Seagulls but with few options at the back, Young should remain our right-back.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

It was a tough choice between Lindelof and Eric Bailly but the Swede keeps his spot in the side simply because Bailly had a poorer game.

Chris Smalling (CB)

Smalling would be brought back into the team to replace Bailly and hopefully, he will perform brilliantly for us.

Luke Shaw (LB)

The Englishman was another player who had a poor outing against Brighton but should keep his spot in the team.

Fred (CM)

The Brazilian didn’t have a quality outing in our last game but he should retain his spot in the team ahead of the clash against Spurs.

Nemanja Matic (CM)

Matic was another player that missed out against Brighton but the Serbian might make it to the United XI and add some steel to the side.

Paul Pogba (CM)

The Frenchman had a stinker of a game against Brighton and he must make amends against our top-four rival Tottenham. A good performance from Pogba could be the difference between winning and losing.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

Juan Mata wasn’t impressive against Brighton and we could see Lingard take the spot against Tottenham.

Romelu Lukaku (ST)

Lukaku scored a goal against Brighton and the striker will be up against his fellow Belgians Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.

Alexis Sanchez (LW)

The Chilean missed our last game but he could be brought into the side as Anthony Martial’s replacement.
