Marcus Rashford, Jordan Sancho, and Cristiano Ronald will retain their positions in the starting lineup. They produced a fantastic performance last night.
Bruno Fernandes, Scott McToninay, and Fred will control the midfield. The latter will retain his position despite committing several errors in the first half against Arsenal.

As usual, David De Gea will start in between the sticks. The Spaniard has been instrumental for the club and has already made 46 saves so far this season.
