Manchester United travel to face Yeovil Town on Friday night in the FA Cup fourth round with Chilean superstar, Alexis Sanchez hoping to make his debut. The 29-year-old completed his transfer to Manchester United during the course of the week, and will be confident of hitting the ground running against the least ranked team left in the draw.
The FA Cup represents a huge chance to win a silverware this season as we are seemingly out of the League race. Here are 11 players that could start the game tomorrow night at Yeovil.
With David De Gea in fantastic form all season, second choice shotstopper, Sergio Romero is expected to feature in this game as he has done in the domestic competitions this term.
Jose Mourinho is expected to rotate his defence given the nature of our opponents. Players who have struggled for game time will be hoping to play a part in this fixture. At right back, Swedish international, Victor Lindelof will be looking to work his way back into the thoughts of Jose Mourinho, as the return to fitness of Phil Jones has put him back on the bench.
In the heart of defence, the partnership of Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling is expected. Smalling has featured a lot this term while Rojo has struggled for game time since returning from injury in November. At left back, forgotten man, Daley Blind will be hoping to impress his manager.
In the defensive midfield position, Scott McTominay and Ander Herrera will be hoping to clock up the minutes. While McTominay is hoping to establish himself in the first team, the story of Herrera has been the fall from grace given that he was club’s Player of the Year last season.
Further forward, Juan Mata will be looking to play from the right. The Spaniard has enjoyed a run in the first team in recent matches and will be looking to continue in that stead. In the hole behind the striker, Belgian international, Marouane Fellaini will be looking to disturb the opponents in the number 10 position with his aerial threat.
On the left, Alexis Sanchez will be prepped up to start in what would be his United debut should he start.
Marcus Rashford is in a rut as he has failed to score or assist a goal in 3 months. Getting a goal against Yeovil will help his confidence a lot.
Probable lineup: Romero, Lindelof, Smalling, Rojo, Blind, Herrera, McTominay, Sanchez, Fellaini, Mata, Rashford
