Manchester United Predicted Lineup vs Sheffield United

Premier League team news

The Red Devils have been really unlucky with injuries to key players at the start of the campaign. Lisandro Martinez (foot), Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (thigh) Tyrell Malacia (knee) and Amad Diallo (knee) are all long-term absentees and ruled out for this.

Casemiro is also ruled out after hurting himself on international duty, but Raphael Varane has returned to training before this game. Sergio Reguilon is also in a fight against time to regain fitness in time for this game. Ten Hag really doesn’t have much choice apart from making do with whatever options he currently has at his disposal.

Predicted Lineup

Andre Onana (GK), Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane, Sergio Reguilon, Sofyan Amrabat, Mason Mount, Bruno Fernandes, Antony, Marcus Rashford, Rasmus Hojlund

Manchester United Predicted Lineup vs Sheffield United – Our top three

Bruno Fernandes – Innovative midfield marvel eager for goals

Coming off an impressive international break in which he got quite a few goal contributions for Portugal, Bruno Fernandes looks to do the same for Manchester United. The captain will probably be marked tightly and be hassled by Sheffield midfielder Oliver Norwood, but he knows how to slip past markers nicely.

Fernandes’ creativity is well known, but he needs to be more accurate with his defence-splitting passes to create major chances for his teammates. The Portuguese star will also look to get himself into empty spaces to lodge some devastating shots on goal to get in the scoresheet.

Rasmus Hojlund – Exciting forward eager to end Premier League drought

Rasmus Hojlund is yet to play a Premier League goal for the Red Devils. He has come close quite often but is unable to be clinical with his finishing. The young Danish forward will probably be troubled by opposition defender Anel Ahmedhodžić, who will look to track his movement and rough him up with aggressive challenges.

Hojlund needs to improve his unpredictability by moving past the defenders smartly and positioning him in key scoring areas. More importantly, he will look to be more ruthless with his finishing to finally end his goal-less streak in the league.

Marcus Rashford – Rapid wing wizard striving to solve consistency issues

Fortunately for Marcus Rashford, the international break helped improve his confidence after his impressive goal in England’s 3-1 win over Italy. He is struggling for consistency and has been blamed for poor decision-making in the final third. Rashford looks to silence his doubters by causing a storm against the Sheffield United backline.

Jayden Bogle might try to stick close to him, but Rashford needs to use his impressive pace and dribbling ability to glide past him. Most importantly, he needs to nail his final passes or shots to inspire his team to a big win and improve his confidence levels.

Will Alejandro Garnacho start vs Sheffield United?

Alejandro Garnacho has had the Manchester United fans signing his name almost every time he’s been on the pitch this season. But with the Argentine struggling to contribute goals in games he started and Rashford in good form, the Argentine is unlikely to get a start at Bramhall Lane.

The Red Devils have the perfect chance to finally get a dominant, high-scoring win in the Premier League against the weakest side at the moment. They need to be at their clinical best and put away at least most of their created chances to run riot over the Blades and finally get some winning momentum on their side.
