Cavani and Henderson to start – Man United fans name starting XI vs Spurs

2 min read

Manchester United fans have made their feelings clear on who should feature in the starting lineup against Tottenham on Sunday, giving Dean Henderson, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford prominent roles for the Reds’ visit to London.

United return to Premier League action after beating Granada 2-0 in the Europa League quarter-final first leg in Spain in midweek, with Rashford and Bruno Fernandes scoring on that occasion to ensure United have one foot in the semi-finals.

Their attention will now turn to Spurs on Sunday where Ole Gunnar Solskajer will clash will his predecessor, Jose Mourinho, and both sides are looking to strengthen their positions for qualification for European football.

The Reds boast a four-point cushion over Leicester in third, although they’ll be wary of complacency sneaking in towards the end of the season, with Solskajer eager to mathematically guarantee Champions League football as early as possible.

United fans would make two changes from the starting XI that triumphed against Granada on Thursday, with Henderson making his return to the starting lineup over David De Gea who kept a clean sheet in his homeland.

While Daniel James drew praise for his performance in the Europa League, United fans would bench the Welshman for this game in the capital, playing Cavani down the middle instead with Mason Greenwood on the right.

With the exception of those changes, it’s clear United fans would maintain faith in the players who started in the Reds’ most recent victory, with Scott McTominay notably retaining his role in midfield alongside Paul Pogba.

The back four that prevailed in Granada would also remain unchanged, with the winning combination of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw all starting again.

United fans’ starting XI vs Tottenham: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes, Rashford, Cavani, Greenwood.
