Here is how the German has set his side up for the game…

De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Fred, Pogba; Rashford, Ronaldo, Sancho.

Subs: Henderson, Lindelof, Jones, Bailly, Wan-Bissaka, Mata, Lingard, Elanga, Cavani.

You can see how the XI compares to our predicted lineup here.

The big news is that Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the United starting lineup, as one of five changes from the Manchester derby.

Bruno Fernandes is also not involved, with Nemanja Matic coming into midfield and the Portuguese not even on the bench.

Raphael Varane is also back in the side after recovering from Covid, with Victor Lindelof dropping out.

Edinson Cavani has returned to the bench, with Diogo Dalot and Marcus Rashford also in the side from the start.

Anthony Elanga is on the bench but Rashford has been given a chance to prove his quality after a week where his United future has been discussed at length.
