Manchester United are back at Old Trafford on Wednesday for the what feels like the first time in years. The Reds take on Sheffield United in a fifth- vs. eighth-placed Premier League clash that could have massive repercussions for the race for Champions League football next season. United restarted the season with a draw against fellow European qualification hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur, while the Blades enter this match off the back of a disappointing draw against Aston Villa and a somewhat shocking loss to Newcastle over the weekend.
Paul Pogba, who made an instant impact off the bench last week against Spurs, should be in line to make his return to the starting line-up — in which case, Fred or Scott McTominay will have to make way. Victor Lindelöf is a doubt after limping off last week, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may choose to be cautious with the Swede given the raft of fixtures ahead. Some other rotation is possible with an FA Cup clash coming up on Saturday, but as Norwich City are likely to be more obliging opponents, expect the United manager to field close to a full-strength team against Sheffield.
