If they are to get a positive result, it will have to be without key midfielder Casemiro.

The £70million summer signing has been in great form of late.

But after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season during the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, he will have to serve a one-match suspension.

Brazilian Fred could come in to replace his compatriot Casemiro.

Either he or Scott McTominay are likely to partner Christian Eriksen in the heart of Erik ten Hag’s midfield.

David de Gea will keep his place between the sticks, although Jack Butland will be available again after having to sit out against parent club Palace.

With Diogo Dalot having suffered with a thigh injury, Aaron-Bissaka is likely to continue at right-back.

Luke Shaw performed well at centre-half in recent weeks, but moved back to left-back at Selhurst Park.


He is likely to continue there on Sunday, with Lisandro Martinez partnering Raphael Varane in the middle.

Donny van de Beek remains out injured, with Bruno Fernandes to start in the No10 role.

Marcus Rashford and Antony will likely be picked on the flanks, although Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Elanga will be waiting in the wings.

Jadon Sancho remains unavailable.

Anthony Martial was forced to be withdrawn with injury against Manchester City last weekend, but could return on Sunday.

Should the Frenchman not be fit enough, shock signing Wout Weghorst could be given another shot up top.
