Star Returns – Man Utd’s Probable 4-2-3-1 XI vs Middlesbrough

In form Manchester United will face Middlesbrough tomorrow and manager Jose Mourinho will be looking to win his fifth league game in a row.

At Old Trafford, the Red Devils surely hold stronger cards and should be considered favorites to earn all three points against Boro.

As far as Man United’s team news is concerned, three players are out injured at the moment but there is a slight chance that captain Wayne Rooney will return (PhysioRoom).

Expect summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan to return to the starting XI. The Armenian international scored a wonder goal against the Black Cats in the last game. The former Dortmund star may replace Lingard in the starting lineup.

Moreover, French international Anthony Martial may return in place of Spanish attacker Juan Mata. After impressive display vs Sunderland, Blind should retain his place in the defense ahead of Darmian.

Here is Man Utd’s probable 4-2-3-1 XI vs Middlesbrough.

    This line up looks great if Mourinho will not bench Martial as he likes benching him for no reason. For me Martial should always be the number one man at the left side wing if he is injury free. Mikhitarian should also be a sure starter on the right wing, then any other player should come from the bench. In the middle of the pack Pogba remains my number one choice. Herrera and Carrick should play along side him.
    At the center back Smalling, Jones, Bailly or Rojo can be there no quams. Full backs should accommodate Valencia, Blind, Darmian or Shaw if he is back from injury.
    Ibrahimovic is scoring now, he should continue there.
    In between the sticks, David or Romero can also fit in.
