4-2-3-1: Man United’s Probable XI vs Sunderland

Louis Van GaalManchester United are currently in second place and will hope to continue the winning run to pile pressure on rivals Manchester City.

The Red Devils face bottom of the table Sunderland next in the Premier League and should be considered favorites to earn all three points, especially at Old Trafford.

As far as Man United’s team news is concerned, expect star striker and summer signing Anthony Martial to return to the starting XI versus the Black Cats. He should replace Belgian international Marouane Fellaini.

Rooney will probably play in the No. 10 role again behind the French star. Italian defender Mateo Darmian should return to the starting lineup in place of Valencia.

In the absence of Shaw and Rojo, Young started as the left wing back versus Ipswich. However, it will not come as a surprise if Blind is used as LWB against Sunderland. Jones and Smalling may form the central defensive partnership.

Here is Man United’s probable starting XI vs Sunderland.
