Man United predicted XI vs Everton: Erik ten Hag to make tactical adjustment



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag is expected to make a tactical adjustment as Manchester United prepare to face Everton in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways as they face Everton at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon. Having lost their last two Premier League fixtures, United are looking to bounce back.

A 2-1 defeat against Fulham followed by a 3-1 loss against Manchester City has set Erik ten Hag‘s men 11 points from Champions League qualification with 11 games left this season in the league, so a win against Everton is a must-have.

André Onana has been fantastic of late and will remain in goal, while the back four in front of him has become severely depleted due to injuries, with only Diogo Dalot being able to start consistently.

With Martínez injured and Maguire and Evans’ fitnesses unclear, Varane and Lindelöf will more than likely pair at centre-back, with Sofyan Amrabat covering at left-back, which will provide a tactical change for Erik ten Hag as the Moroccan international can drift into midfield and help create more passing options on the ball.

There are no expected changes in midfield, with Casemiro and Kobbie Mainoo retaining their partnership behind club captain Bruno Fernandes.

The front line depends on the injury news from the club surrounding Ramsus Højlund in the 24 hours leading up to the game. It has been documented that he will be assessed ahead of the tie, but on the assumption that the Dane is not fit, Marcus Rashford may start up front.

If this is the case, Antony will likely return to the XI on the right wing, with Alejandro Garnacho covering on the left.

Full predicted XI

Onana, Dalot, Varane, Lindelöf, Amrabat, Casemiro, Mainoo, Fernandes, Antony, Rashford, Garnacho.
