Ten Hag drops Casemiro in three big changes | Expected Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Newcastle

Manchester United will aim to return to winning ways when they host Newcastle United in their final home game of the Premier League season this evening.

The Red Devils have been disappointing since the international break, picking up just seven points from a possible 24 at their disposal.

This has put them three points behind Newcastle United and Chelsea. Both clubs have a superior goal difference.

United’s European hopes are no longer in their own hands, but they must beat the Magpies tonight to give themselves a chance on the final day.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Andre Onana has played every minute of the Premier League campaign for the Red Devils. He made three key saves against Arsenal last weekend, but the club still suffered a 1-0 loss. The Cameroonian is expected to continue in goal ahead of Altay Bayindir.

There could be a solitary change in the backline. Casemiro was at fault for Arsenal’s goal as he played Kai Havertz onside in the lead-up. He could be dropped for Lisandro Martinez, who has returned to training over the past week.

Martinez should partner Jonny Evans in the heart of the defence with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot continuing in the full-back roles. Wan-Bissaka could be playing his final home game for the club with suggestions that he could be sold during the summer.

Sofyan Amrabat produced his best performance of the season against the Gunners. The Moroccan has not had sufficient opportunities on loan but proved his credentials last weekend. He should get the nod over Casemiro to partner Kobbie Mainoo in the centre of the park.

There will likely be a couple of changes further forward. Club captain Bruno Fernandes should return in the number 10 role ahead of Scott McTominay, having had multiple training sessions after his injury.

Marcus Rashford could return to the starting XI on the left flank. Alejandro Garnacho has been a consistent starter for Ten Hag and could get the nod over Amad Diallo on the right flank.

Rasmus Hojlund will lead the attack once more with Anthony Martial on the sidelines. Martial has been spotted in partial training, but the Frenchman may have played his final game for the club.
