Confirmed Manchester United line-up against Young Boys

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has named his starting line-up to face Young Boys this evening.

Following a 1-0 win victory against Crystal Palace in his first game in charge, the 63-year-old will be looking to continue the momentum against the reigning Swiss champions.

This is how the German coach has lined his side up against David Wagner’s side:

Starting XI: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Matic, Shaw, van de Beek, Mata, Amad, Lingard, Elanga, Greenwood.

Substitutes: Heaton, Kovar, Hardley, Mengi, Savage, Iqbal, Shoretire.

You can see how Rangnick’s line-up compares to our predicted one for the game here.

Rangnick has made 11 changes to the side that beat the Eagles at Old Trafford on Sunday and has handed Champions League debuts for United to Amad Diallo and Anthony Elanga.

United come into the clash against Young Boys assured of top spot in Group F which brings qualification for the Champions League last-16.

Rangnick has used the game as an opportunity to call up a number of the club’s talented academy prospects.

Wagner’s side on the other hand will be looking to replicate their 2-1 win against United in September on matchday one, as they still have a fighting chance of securing Europa League football.

A win against the Reds at the Theatre of Dreams could see the Swiss side qualify, if Villarreal beat Atalanta.

However, the former Huddersfield Town manager has acknowledged his side will face a difficult task playing against a team eager for revenge and showing positive signs under Rangnick.

The Manchester United eleven that have started the last two games against Arsenal and Crystal Palace have been given the night off ahead of Saturday’s trip to Norwich City.
