Predicted Manchester United starting lineup vs Omonia: Two stars likely to start

Manchester United will host Omonia at Old Trafford in the Europa League and the likes of Scott McTominay and Fred are likely to be in the starting lineup.

Man United recorded their second win in a row after the Manchester City trouncing two weekends ago when they sealed a hard-fought 2-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park last weekend.

The Red Devils will look to ensure they make it three wins from three games when they host Omonia at the Theatre of Dreams on Thursday night.

United won the reverse fixture 3-2 in Omonia, thanks to goalscorers Marcus Rashford [x2] and Anthony Martial.

Erik ten Hag fielded a strong team against the Cyprus side and struggled in the first half, with Cristiano Ronaldo missing some decent chances.

The likes of Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen all started in the midfield but they needed Martial and Rashford, who both came off the bench in the second half, to get the job done.

Ten Hag is likely to start both Scott McTominay and Fred in the midfield in a bid to rest both Casemiro and Eriksen, who are both expected to be in the team this weekend against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

McTominay won’t be in the team against the Magpies due to suspension. The Scot received his fifth booking in eight games against Everton and now he’s on course to start against Omonia, although this is only a suggestion.

Fred was decent against Manchester City during his cameo and was left on the bench against Everton, hence he’s fully rested to start against the Cypriot side.

Predicted Manchester United starting lineup vs Omonia

Goalkeeper: David de Gea
Defenders: Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, Tyrell Malacia
Midfielders: Fred, Scott McTominay, Bruno Fernandes
Forwards: Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford

The Red Devils need a win to move a step closer to qualifying for the round of 16 of the Europa League. A win over Omonia will hand Man United nine points from four matches.

Manchester United will host Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Sunday in the Premier League. A win over the in-form Magpies will take them into the 4th position, although that depends on the result between Aston Villa vs Chelsea.

United are in the 5th position with 15 points, one point behind the Blues, after eight matches played.
