Manchester United were already without suspended star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and now there is more bad news for the Red Devils.
Yesterday, we predicted Man United’s potential lineup for their FA Cup tie against Chelsea and included the likes of Rashford and Martial in the starting XI.
However, the latest team news suggests that the likes of Martial, Rashford and captain Rooney have not traveled with the squad to London (Mirror).
Therefore, we can expect manager Jose Mourinho to make many key changes in his team. In the absence of Zlatan, Marcus and Wilson, Mkhitaryan can be the one to start in the No. 9 role.
The Armenian international has effectively played as a striker with teams like Shakhtar and Dortmund. Hence, he will be the perfect man for the CF role. The likes of Mata and Lingard may start with Henrikh in the attack.
Mourinho may also alter his usual 4-2-3-1 formation against the Blues. Here is Man Utd’s probable 4-3-3 XI vs Chelsea.
