Manchester United will field the same XI which drew 1-1 with Everton a week ago as they face Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford today.

Eric Bailly, who returned from injury to make his first start since October against Zorya in the Europa League on Thursday, is named among the substitutes, with Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones lining up in the centre of defence for the home side.

Michael Carrick will anchor the home side’s midfield, with Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba apparently set to play either side of the 35-year-old in a 4-3-3 formation.

Further forward, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be looking to build on an impressive midweek performance which saw him bag his first goal for United; he is joined by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial in attack.

Spurs have named a strong line-up which includes the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, while star defender Toby Alderweireld returns to the starting XI after a spell out injured. A win for the away side would take them level with Manchester City after Pep Guardiola’s men were beaten 4-2 by Leicester City yesterday.
