Confirmed lineups: Man Utd vs Spurs
Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford this afternoon as Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur.
The North London club head to Manchester off the back of their 7-2 hammering of Maccabi Haifa in their Europa League play-off that saw Harry Kane net a hat-trick and Giovani Lo Celso grab a brace.
Manchester United were 3-0 winners at Brighton & Hove Albion in the EFL Cup 24 hours earlier.
The two lineups for today’s game are:
David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Anthony Martial
Substitutes: Dean Henderson, Victor Lindelof, Fred, Scott McTominay, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Donny van de Beek
Eric Bailly partners Harry Maguire in the centre of a back four, otherwise no surprises named by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Donny van de Beek remains among the substitutes as Paul Pogba continues to partner Nemanja Matic in central midfield. Fred and Scott McTominay are both on the bench too.
Hugo Lloris; Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez, Sergio Reguilon; Pierre Emile Hjobjerg, Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele; Erik Lamela, Harry Kane, Heung-min Son
Substitutes: Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies, Harry Winks, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura
Serge Aurier starts ahead of Matt Doherty at right-back whilst Sergio Reguilon makes his Premier League debut down the other flank. Jose names three defenders among the substitutes as Eric Dier surprisingly continues to start in the back four.
Heung-min Son is fit again to start in attack, whilst Erik Lamela is named ahead of Lucas Moura in the front three.
Manchester United have seen their odds drift slightly above evens following the confirmation of the lineups, similar to the odds you can get on a hand of blackjack at casinos like Online Casino Snoop. You can find odds around 3/1 on the visitors to come away with three points, just as Crystal Palace have done already this campaign.
