Man United strongest XI to face Tottenham in Premier League restart: Pogba, McTominay and Rashford in

Tottenham will resume the Premier League season on Friday, June 19 with a mouth-watering clash against Manchester United.

 

The two sides were due to go head-to-head midway through March but the league was suspended a few days prior to the fixture due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Spurs, who were then without a number of keys players, really were in a wretched run of form after crashing out of the Champions League with a 3-0 defeat at RB Leipzig, whereas the Red Devils were flying high on the back of an 11-match unbeaten run.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had warmed up for the game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a 2-0 home win over Man City, before then hitting LASK for five in the Europa League.

Back in the mix for a top-four finish after an upturn in form following the January addition of Bruno Fernandes, United would have been extremely confident of extending their 11-game run in N17.

However, the break could potentially now work in Spurs’ favour as Jose Mourinho now has key players such as Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Moussa Sissoko and Steven Bergwijn available for selection again.

Given the head coach finally has all his squad to choose from he can name a very strong starting XI, but how could their opponents on June 19 line up?

football.london takes a look at the strongest XI Solskjaer could look to field in N17.

GOALKEEPER
The No.1 spot just isn’t up for debate at Old Trafford as David de Gea is Solskjaer’s first choice between the sticks. Sergio Romero is a very good deputy goalkeeper to call upon if needed.

DEFENCE
Aaron Wan-Bissaka has made the right-back spot his own since joining from Crystal Palace last summer and he will start providing he doesn’t pick up an injury between now and then.

However, it’s not as clear cut on the opposite flank as Brandon Williams has really impressed this term and he is a serious contender to take Luke Shaw’s spot in the team on a full-time basis. Solskjaer also has a tough choice at centre-back in terms of who partners captain Harry Maguire.
Victor Lindelof usually gets the nod next to the England international but the Red Devils now have Eric Bailly back after an injury-hit season.

MIDFIELD
The big news ahead of the game against Spurs is that Paul Pogba is now back to fitness after recovering from his ankle injury.

That in turn gives Solskjaer a bit of a dilemma given how well his midfield has done recently.

The Red Devils utilised a midfield diamond at Everton at the start of March and that may be in use once again to fit Scott McTominay, Fred, Fernandes and Pogba in.

McTominay would start ahead of Nemanja Matic in the holding role, with Fred and Pogba then playing in central midfield and Fernandes in an attacking role behind the two strikers.

ATTACK
There is also some more good news on the injury front for the United boss with Marcus Rashford also fit and available again.

The England international didn’t play a single minute in the team’s 11-game unbeaten run and his return comes as a huge boost in their quest to finish in the top four.

Rashford will more than likely partner Anthony Martial, who has been in excellent form during their good run, in attack if they go with a midfield diamond, with Odion Ighalo and Mason Greenwood then options to come on from the bench.

Strongest Manchester United XI vs Tottenham: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred, Pogba, Fernandes; Rashford, Martial.
