Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will on Sunday be hoping that Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba both pass late fitness tests for Manchester United’s trip to face Tottenham.
Shaw came off at half-time of United’s 2-0 Europa League quarter-final first-leg victory over Granada in Spain on Thursday night, though Solskjaer said his switch was to “protect” the England left-back ahead of Sunday’s huge Premier League clash against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.
Solskjaer also confirmed that Pogba had a “bit of a niggle” but should be OK to play in north London.
Elsewhere for United, Anthony Martial, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are all sidelined by injury.
The United boss has a couple of key calls to make with his starting XI: David de Gea started in goal on Thursday, but it would be a surprise not to see Dean Henderson return against Spurs as the battle for No1 goalkeeper continues.
The defence is as you are providing Shaw is fit. In midfield, Scott McTominay is suspended for the return leg against Granada, but Fred may come in to add some bite.
Edinson Cavani would be the go-to striker but has been off the pace recently, so Solskjaer must decide whether to trust the Uruguayan to lead the line, play Greenwood up front again, or potentially pack the midfield and play a roving front three of Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes in something of a 4-3-1-2 formation.
Manchester United predicted XI: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, Pogba, McTominay; Fernandes; Greenwood, Rashford
Injury list: Bailly, Jones, Martial
