Predicted Man Utd line-up vs Borussia Dortmund, Jadon Sancho returns

Manchester United are scheduled to face Borussia Dortmund in a pre-season friendly tonight. This will be the club’s final game of the United States tour and they will be aiming to finish off on a high.

Manager Erik ten Hag is likely to pick his best possible starting XI for the game. With Kobbie Mainoo injured, the Red Devils boss is expected to make at least one change to the line-up.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Andre Onana made his non-competitive debut for United in the defeat to Real Madrid.

The Cameroonian star conceded twice, but it was still a hugely impressive performance. He had a stunning pass accuracy of 95 per cent with four long balls completed.

The 27-year-old made three saves inside his box alongside one high claim and one successful run out.

He is expected to continue between the sticks against Dortmund at the Allegiant Stadium in Nevada.

In front of him, it should be a familiar backline from Ten Hag’s first season in charge of the club.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is currently the preferred right-back ahead of Diogo Dalot for the manager.

Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez will start in central defence with Luke Shaw at left-back.

With Mainoo injured, Casemiro should be partnered by Mason Mount in the centre of the park.

Bruno Fernandes should feature in his preferred number 10 role after playing on the right wing versus Madrid.

Meanwhile, we expect Marcus Rashford and Antony to start on the left and right wing respectively.

Alejandro Garnacho will likely drop to the bench with Antony’s comeback to the first XI.

Jadon Sancho has been experimented from the false nine role, and he could lead the line against his former employers.

Sancho has been inconsistent with his finishing in pre-season, but he recently scored a wonderful goal against Arsenal.
