Paul Pogba misses out: Man Utd Predicted XI vs West Ham

Manchester United have a chance to get back to winning ways when they take on West Ham at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side go head-to-head with the Hammers in the FA Cup tonight. United have only won one of their past four matches, thrashing Southampton 9-nil before being held to a six-goal thriller by Everton.

What's YOUR PREDICTION for Manchester United vs West Ham?

Man Utd win!

Man Utd win!

It'll be a draw...

Eric Bailly remains a major injury doubt, whilst the Red Devils will be without Paul Pogba for the foreseeable future after the midfielder was injured during the draw with Everton.

Bearing this in mind, here is Football FanCast’s predicted starting line-up, which sees Solskjaer ring four changes from the thrilling 3-3 draw with the Toffees.

Solskjaer is set to hand Dean Henderson a rare start with the Englishman expected to replace David de Gea between the sticks, having kept four clean sheets in ten appearances across all competitions this season.

The Norwegian could have somewhat of a selection dilemma in defence with Bailly a major doubt and Victor Lindelof clearly struggling from a lingering back injury.

This means that Axel Tuanzebe could be given another chance to impress alongside club captain Harry Maguire in the heart of the defence, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka keeping his place at right-back.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinking

Who did Manchester United face in their first game of 2020?

Alex Telles could also come in for Luke Shaw, having been left on the bench for the last three Premier League games in a row.

Elsewhere on the pitch, Fred came off the bench to replace Pogba against Everton, and the Brazilian could be handed a starting berth next to Scott McTominay behind Bruno Fernandes in the advanced playmaker position.

Anthony Martial’s struggles in front of goal this season – he’s managed just four goals in the top-flight – means Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are most likely to resume their roles on the wings with Edinson Cavani leading the line.
