Spotlight: Manchester United and Jesse Lingard need to bounce back

After the horrific Carabao Cup loss against West Ham, United needs to bounce back. While Lingard and De Gea saved the day last Premier League match, the team needs to show its strength. For example, we need more of the United who beat the Hammers last week. Because as per usual, the United fans on social media freaked out again way too soon and demanded Ole be sacked. Will Twitter fans ever learn? Look to this match for the Red Devils to bounce back strongly.

Team News:

After loss to West Ham, United will look to strengthen their league position atop the Premier League table. I expect Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, and Raphael Varane to start this match with Edinson Cavani expected to make an appearance. Up front, with Marcus Rushford still out, Jadon Sancho should start on the left. Mason Greenwood should retain a spot on the right while a certain no. 7 will retain his spot at striker.

Midfield become a bit more complicated. Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba should both be locks to start, but where does Fred or Scott McTominay start then?

For Aston Villa, Qxel Tuanzebe cannot play due to him being on loan from United. Leon Bailey is a major doubt after suffering a quad injury, when scoring in their last league match against Everton. Morgan Sanson may miss the trip to Manchester after suffering a hamstring injury in the penalty shoot-out defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday.Trezeguet remains sidelined following knee surgery back in April. Ex-Red Ashley Young played at Stamford Bridge.

Predicted Line ups:

Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, Pogba, Fernandes; Greenwood, Sancho; Ronaldo

West Ham Predicted Lineup: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Ming, Targett, Ramsey, Luiz, McGin, Ings, Watkins, Traore

Predicted Score: 0-3 to United
