Manchester United face Leicester City this weekend for their FA Cup quarter-final game and the Red Devils will be looking for a positive result after winning the UEFA Europa League tie against AC Milan. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should show some urgency to land a trophy this season. The boss should stick with the 4-2-3-1 formation and here is the possible lineup for United.
The goalkeeper and the back four.
Dean Henderson has been in fine form this season and was incredible against AC Milan at San Siro. The goalkeeper has kept 11 clean sheets in 18 starts this season and he should start ahead of David De Gea. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof should start as the center-back pairing and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the natural choice at right-back. Alex Telles may start ahead of Luke Shaw as the latter may be benefitted from some much-needed rest.
The midfield trio.
Paul Pogba should be fit enough to start the game against the Foxes. The Frenchman may be deployed as the deep-lying playmaker and Scott Mctominay as the defensive midfielder and with Bruno Fernandes playing the number ten role in the side. Manchester United can use Pogba’s physical presence against the likes of Youri Tielemanns and Wilfried Ndidi.
The front three.
Marcus Rashford starts at left-wing and Daniel James as the right-winger and the latter’s pace will be useful against the Leicester City full-back. Mason Greenwood is the main forward since Anthony Martial is out injured and Edinson Cavani may struggle to pass the fitness test on time.
Manchester United needs to be clinical in front of the goal and cannot afford to miss many chances as the Foxes are a well-balanced side. United will be hoping to go into the international break with a positive result and a win on Sunday will take them closer to silverware. Both Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba need to drop their best performances to inspire their side to a victory.
