A long midweek trip to the south-coast, to take on Bournemouth, at the Vitality Stadium, isn’t the ideal preparation for the forthcoming FA Cup semi-final, but, needs must.
Jose Mourinho, after the home defeat, on Sunday, against West Bromwich Albion, was highly critical of his side and has threatened changes to his starting eleven.
We are now in a position to reveal whether the ‘Special One’ has gone through with that threat by bringing you the team-sheets to mull over:
Bournemouth – Begovic, Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels, Fraser, Surman, L Cook, King, Ibe, Wilson.
Subs – Boruc, Gosling, Pugh, Arter, Defoe, Mousset, Simpson.
Manchester United – De Gea, Jones, Smalling, Shaw, Darmian, Pogba, Herrera, Fellaini, Martial, Lingard, Rashford.
Subs – Pereira, Bailly, Sanchez, Lukaku, Blind, Young, Matic.
What’s the verdict?
Are there any major surprises, in your opinion, in the starting eleven Mourinho has opted for?
