Ralf Rangnick has selected his United starting XI for the big game and here is how the German has lined his side up.

Biggest STAR Your Club Are Trying To SIGN This Month

You can see how the side Rangnick has selected compares to our predicted lineup here.

The big news is that Cristiano Ronaldo is fit to start the game after suffering a neck injury which required treatment this week.

Scott McTominay is also fit to play after being substituted late on in the 3-1 win at Brentford, where he was outstanding.

Edinson Cavani is also fit enough for a place on the bench here, having missed out on the midweek matchday squad.

Rangnick had already confirmed his back four before the game and it there that the only change from Wednesday night’s team is made.

Harry Maguire comes in for Victor Lindelof, whose house was broken into while he played in midweek, and will captain the side.

It looks like a continuation of the 4-3-3 system which United have used in the last two matches.

Jesse Lingard is fit to make the bench against the club he did so well with last season and scored the winner against in September, but Jadon Sancho is still missing.
