Predicted Manchester United XI Squad Against Tottenham Hotspur

As Manchester United readies itself for a clash against Tottenham Hotspur in their upcoming Premier League match on Saturday evening, speculation surrounding the starting lineup is rife.

Drawing from the starting XI that Manager Erik ten Hag fielded in their recent showdown against Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 14th, 2023, we feel that EtH will opt for the same starting XI, but dropping Garnacho to make an impact from the bench and giving Sancho a start.

Goalkeeper: Andre Onana

Defenders: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw

Midfielders: Casemiro, Mason Mount

Attacking Midfielders: Antony, Bruno Fernandez, Alejandro Garnacho

Striker: Marcus Rashford

There has been no reported injuries over the week since the 1-0 victory over Wolves, with that in mind we feel that Erik ten Hag will opt for the same starting XI, just with Sancho slotting in on the left instead of Garnacho against a challenging Tottenham side, one of which is now without Harry Kane. The growing partnership between Varane and Martinez at the back looked strong at Old Trafford.

As supporters eagerly await the confirmation of the predicted lineup on Saturday afternoon, both team plan their final training sessions and match plans before going head to head at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, adding to the excitement of the Premier League season.


Newly appointed manager Ange Postecoglou is eagerly awaiting an update on Cristian Romero’s condition after the defender was substituted due to a head injury, despite scoring in their opening match against Brentford. The Argentine player’s injury is being assessed, and Postecoglou is emphasizing caution when dealing with such issues.

Following the departure of star striker Harry Kane to Bayern Munich, Richarlison is expected to continue leading the forward line. The recent addition of Alejo Veliz is seen as a long-term investment rather than an immediate solution. Fraser Forster has been dealing with a back injury, leading to the selection of new signing Guglielmo Vicario in goal over Hugo Lloris in the previous fixture.

Tanguy Ndombele’s return appears to be on the horizon, but Ryan Sessegnon, Rodrigo Bentancur, and Bryan Gil are likely to be absent from the Spurs squad.

Who do you think will start for Manchester United on Saturday, comment below.
