After finally getting his first victory in charge of the team, Erik ten hag will stick with the exact same players that got the result on Monday and performed really well against their biggest rivals. Even though it will be a very different game because the opposition doesn’t play like Jurgen Klopp’s team, all the players deserved to repeat on the team sheet.

The centre-back partnership that made Old Trafford stand on their feet will be playing again. Lisandro Martinez was named Man Of The Match in the last fixture and hopefully, he can get a similar performance today. Tyrell Malacia also was one of the players who most impressed the fans on Monday when silenced Mohamed Salah almost all game long. The new signing Casemiro will be on the bench.
