Confirmed Lineups: Man Utd vs Sevilla

1 Shares

Manchester United take on Sevilla in the second leg of our Champions League second round tie at Old Trafford in under an hour’s time.

We were held 0-0 in the first leg over in Spain three weeks ago which included David de Gea making two top drawer saves to preserve his clean sheet.

The two teams for this evening’s game have been confirmed as:

Manchester United

David de Gea; Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young; Marouane Fellaini, Nemanja Matic; Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez, Marcus Rashford; Romelu Lukaku

Substitutes: Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian, Victor Lindelof, Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial make their returns from recent knocks to take their places among the substitutes.  Pogba missed Saturday’s 2-1 win over Liverpool after suffering a leg injury in training on Friday, whilst Martial also missed the win at Crystal Palace last Monday.

Jose Mourinho has gone with a 4-2-3-1 formation with Marouane Fellaini making his first start of 2018 to partner Nemanja Matic in front of our defence.  Jesse Lingard is also recalled to play out on the right wing in place of Juan Mata who drops to the bench.

Alexis Sanchez will play his free role as he did fairly well against Liverpool over the weekend.

Sevilla

Sergio Rico; Gabriel Mercado, Simon Kjaer, Clement Lenglet, Sergio Escudero; Pablo Sarabia, Steven N’Zonzi, Ever Banega, Franco Vazquez, Joaquin Correa; Luis Muriel

Substitutes: David Soria, Guilherme Arana, Johannes Geis, Guido Pizarro, Daniel Pareja, Nolito, Wissam Ben Yedder

Vicenzo Montella will be playing a similar 4-5-1 formation with Luis Muriel the sole striker.  The Colombian missed a couple of sitters in the first leg but keeps his place ahead of the club’s top scorer, Wissam Ben Yedder.

Former-Manchester City forward Nolito is named among the substitutes for the La Liga side, whilst former Premier League player Steven N’Zonzi is in the starting lineup.
