Manchester United will be looking to book their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League when they welcome Atletico Madrid to Old Trafford for the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday night.
The contest is delicately poised at 1-1 following the first leg at Wanda Metropolitano, with Anthony Elanga coming off the bench to register for United after Joao Felix had sent Atletico ahead.
Bruno Fernandes, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay could all come back into the side here. Fernandes was unavailable against Tottenham through COVID-19, while Shaw missed out for the same reason, but the pair have been back in training ahead of the match; McTominay should also overcome the calf problem that forced him to miss out in Saturday’s late kickoff.
United have big decisions to make all over the field; Ronaldo will lead the line, while Jadon Sancho is a certain starter in an attacking area, but the return of McTominay could see Paul Pogba move out to the left, with Fernandes operating in the area behind the center-forward.
Diogo Dalot is likely to hold off competition from Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Victor Lindelof to start at right-back, while Marcus Rashford is expected to drop down to the bench for the home side.
