Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to bottom-placed West Brom on Sunday that saw Manchester City win the Premier League.
Second-placed United are now 16 points behind Pep Guardiola’s side with only five games left to play but Jose Mourinho’s men have very little time to mourn about the disappointing defeat on Sunday as they travel to the seaside to face Bournemouth on Wednesday.
The world’s best goalkeeper, De Gea is sure to keep his place for Wednesday’s game at Bournemouth.
Valencia has been one of the most consistent players in the Premier League and will certainly start the game against the Cherries.
Smalling has been solid lately and should continue to keep his place in the team.
Lindelof started ahead of Bailly for the West Brom game and the Swede put in a decent shift in defence.
Young continues to thrive as a left-back for United. He should start at the Vitality.
Matic’s dominant presence in the midfield would be one of the keys to help the Red Devils bounce back from a disappointing defeat against the Baggies.
Pogba failed to deliver in an advanced role last weekend at Old Trafford but will be itching to make a mark here.
Mata is a clever customer and his vision and guile will be vital if United are to take three points home.
Lingard has arguably been our best player in the last month or two and must start the game against Bournemouth. His spirit and energy to run for 90 minutes non-stop have made him an invaluable player in this side.
Alexis Sanchez clearly needs a rest and the player to replace him on the left should be Marcus Rashford. Rashford’s pace and direct running would be vital in opening up the Bournemouth defence.
Lukaku is brimming with confidence at the moment and should continue leading the United attack.
