Marcus Rashford (groin) is a slight injury concern for Manchester United after departing the field of play during the win over Bournemouth on Sunday, so Romelu Lukaku could be handed a first start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer up front.

Alexis Sanchez (hamstring) is also close to a return and could come into contention, most likely for a place on the bench given the nature of his injury and the length of time he has been out.

Marouane Fellaini, Fred and Andreas Pereira are options in central midfield if Solskjaer decides to bench Ander Herrera, while Juan Mata is another rested alternative in attack.

The suspension of Eric Bailly and injuries to Marcos Rojo (unknown) and Chris Smalling (foot) pave the way for a return for Phil Jones at centre-half, while Diogo Dalot could be handed a recall at right-back if Ashley Young requires a breather.

Scott McTominay (unspecified injury) remains a doubt, meanwhile.
