FA Cup

Casemiro dropped in three big changes | Expected Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Man City

Manchester United take on Manchester City in today’s much-anticipated FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.

The Red Devils finished a disappointing eighth in the Premier League this term after picking up only 60 points.

However, they can still make their season a successful one if they beat their arch-rivals in the FA Cup final.

United faced City at the same stage of the competition last term where they suffered a 2-1 defeat.

The Red Devils have the chance to redeem themselves in what could be manager Erik ten Hag’s final game in charge.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Andre Onana has been almost ever-present in goal for the Red Devils in his debut season. He has missed just one game due to international duty.


The Cameroon international is expected to continue between the sticks ahead of Altay Bayindir.

There could be a solitary change in central defence. Casemiro could be surprisingly dropped from the line-up.

Raphael Varane may be reinstated alongside Lisandro Martinez, although he may not be fit to last the entire game for United.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot are nailed-on starters from the full-back position.

Erik ten Hag could stick with the midfield combination of Sofyan Amrabat and Kobbie Mainoo, who have started the last few league games together.

Casemiro has been United’s regular in the number six position, but the club have had multiple training sessions this week with the Brazilian absent from the starting XI.

It would be a huge call from Ten Hag, considering Amrabat was far from his best against Brighton & Hove Albion where he struggled against the high press.

Marcus Rashford should be reinstated on the left flank. He likes the big occasion and has scored in six Manchester derbies.

This would mean Alejandro Garnacho moving to the right wing. The Argentine ace is set to make his 38th consecutive start of the campaign for United.

Bruno Fernandes is expected to start in his customary number 10 role with Rasmus Hojlund leading the line. The Dane has scored in his last two appearances as a substitute.

Amad Diallo and Scott McTominay will drop to the bench after starting recent games.
