Predicted Man Utd XI: Onana; Dalot, Lindelof, Varane, Reguilon; Amrabat, McTominay; Fernandes, Mount, Rashford; Hojlund
Initial concerns over Casemiro’s ankle injury while on Brazil duty appeared to have subsided as the midfielder played the entire 90-minute loss to Uruguay on Tuesday night.
He will, however, remain in Brazil to recover from the injury and will miss the game in Yorkshire.
Sofyan Amrabat had to withdraw from Morocco’s team owing to an injury, but has since returned to training in Manchester.
During Friday’s news conference, Erik ten Hag will provide an update on the midfielder’s likely absence, as well as updates on Raphael Varane and Sergio Reguilon.
Both are expected to return to action after layoffs and would be key assets to a thin defense, with Reguilon’s return to training confirmed.
