Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made three changes from the team that was beaten at Huddersfield last weekend for the clash against Tottenham at Old Trafford on Saturday, and Red Devils fans are divided on his selection.

The Portuguese manager has brought Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford back into the starting XI for the clash against Spurs, with Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata all dropping to the substitutes’ bench.
The inclusion of Bailly after injury alongside Chris Smalling and Phil Jones suggests that Mourinho is going with a 3-4-2-1 or 3-4-1-2 system against Mauricio Pochettino’s men, who are missing top goalscorer Harry Kane after he suffered a slight strain to his left hamstring.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the confirmed team via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.
While some said “shoot me” when they saw Ashley Young’s name on the team sheet, others said the line-up gave them “tears of joy”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
