Man Utd v Young Boys team news

Rangnick has already offered plenty of insights into his plans for this game.

The German has confirmed that Donny van de Beek and Dean Henderson will start the game. Nemanja Matic will be captain.

He has also suggested that Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Mason Greenwood, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Amad and Anthony Elanga will all be involved too.

Luke Shaw may also be fit to play but Edinson Cavani and Raphael Varane are very unlikely to be involved. Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are definitely out.

Rangnick has the opportunity to ring the changes with qualification assured and a hectic run of fixtures coming up.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Young Boys

This is another opportunity for United to take some of Rangnick’s principles onto the pitch and for some fringe players to show what they can do.

There should be lots of energy in the team as United look to continue the momentum generated by Rangnick’s maiden win over Crystal Palace.

This should be a winnable game, although making plenty of changes to the side could well lead to a lack of cohesion. There may also be some rustiness.

Our prediction: United 2-0 Young Boys
