Manchester United qualified for the last eight of the Europa League after beating Rostov in the midweek contest. Next up, the Red Devils will face Middlesbrough in the Premier League tomorrow.
Boro are in terrible form at the moment and recently sacked their head coach Karanka. Therefore, Mourinho’s men should be considered favorites to earn all three points.
As far as Man United’s team news is concerned, several key players are out injured and suspended. Record signing Paul Pogba is out with a hamstring concern and the likes of Herrera and Zlatan are out due to suspension.
In the absence of Pogba and Herrera, we can expect Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellainio to start in the central midfield for the Old Trafford club.
In the attack, Mkhitaryan and Mata may start behind Marcus Rashford. Ashley Young and Valencia will probably start in the wing back positions.
As far as the defense is concerned, Bailly, Smalling and Rojo should start in front of De Gea.
Here is Man United’s strongest possible 3-4-3 XI vs Boro.
