How Manchester United should lineup vs Everton without four big players

Manchester United are likely to face Everton without four senior players but can Ralf Rangnick still put out a strong starting lineup on Saturday?

Man United will face The Toffees away from home tomorrow, knowing that a win over Frank Lampard’s men will take them level on point [54] with the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal.

United settled for a disappointing 1-1 draw against Leicester City at Old Trafford last time out but they will have nothing in mind other than bouncing back to winning ways against Everton.

The Red Devils may attempt to do that without some of their key players due to injury issues, confirmed by Ralf Rangnick.

Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, and Scott McTominay are all injured ahead of the clash, with Rangnick confirming that Shaw could be on the sidelines until the end of this month.

However, United welcomed Cristiano Ronaldo back into the squad after the Portuguese star missed last weekend’s draw against Leicester City due to illness.

Cavani’s absence hasn’t really made any difference and Ronaldo is expected to return back to the starting lineup.

Victor Lindelof and Alex Telles are expected to replace Varane and Shaw respectively while Paul Pogba is now tipped to form a double pivot alongside Fred, who has been impressive in recent games.

Having failed to make his mark against Leicester City, Anthony Elanga could make way for Marcus Rashford, to start alongside Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo. Bruno Fernandes to maintain his role behind his compatriot.
