Predicted Manchester United lineup vs West Bromwich Albion

Manchester United will be aiming to register back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they host West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford tonight.

The Red Devils have experienced a tough start to the season with just 10 points from their first seven games.

Their form at home has been pretty poor with only one point secured from four meetings.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Lineup:

David de Gea has been the undisputed pick for the number one role and he is expected to keep his place tonight ahead of Dean Henderson.

In the defence, there will be an enforced change at left-back after the hamstring injury for Luke Shaw. Alex Telles should make his Premier League debut in his place.

Elsewhere, Aaron Wan-Bissaka should continue in the right-back position with Victor Lindelof accompanying Harry Maguire at the heart of the backline.

Scott McTominay and Fred have been the regular midfield duo under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and no changes are likely, particularly after they were on the winning side at Everton earlier this month.

That would mean that Donny van de Beek and Paul Pogba will have to settle for roles off the bench despite impressing for their respective countries during the international break.

In the attack, Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata should take up the right and left wing positions respectively with Bruno Fernandes operating in the number 10 role.

Anthony Martial has struggled in front of goal for club and country this term and that could pave the way for Edinson Cavani to make his maiden start in the Premier League.

Predicted Manchester United lineup (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Alex Telles; Fred, Scott McTominay; Juan Mata, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Edinson Cavani
