Predicted Man United lineup (4-2-3-1) vs Swansea City, Sanchez and Pogba start

How Man United could lineup against Swansea

Manchester United entertain relegation candidates Swansea City in Saturday's league fixture at Old Trafford. The Red Devils are already out of the hunt for the Premier League title, and their focus will now lie on finishing in the runner-up position to Manchester City for the campaign.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Lineup:

David de Gea has been the Premier League's most valuable keeper this term, having kept United in the game with a number of top-notch saves. He is certain to start between the sticks against Swansea.

Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young have remained the undisputed picks for the right-back and left-back positions respectively and we are anticipating no changes for the weekend.

Likewise, the central defensive partnership may remain unchanged. Eric Bailly has unquestionably made the United defence more solid since his injury comeback, and he may once again partner Chris Smalling, who continues to get the nod over Marcos Rojo and Victor Lindelof at the heart of the backline.

Scott McTominay is a potential injury doubt with a calf problem, and this may urge Jose Mourinho to bring Paul Pogba back into the mix to partner Nemanja Matic in a two-man central midfield.

Further forward, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are strong candidates to start in the wider positions with the latter, in particular, impressive for England during the international break where he bagged a goal and an assist for himself.

Alexis Sanchez has remained a mixed response from the United faithful since his winter switch, but Mourinho may be tempted to start the Chilean in a support striker role behind the recently consistent Romelu Lukaku.
