How we think Man United will lineup against Tottenham today

Varane’s absence has been keenly felt since he suffered a groin injury while on international duty with France at the Uefa Nations League finals in Italy earlier this month.

The centre-back – a £34million summer arrival from Real Madrid – has missed each of United’s last three games as a result of the issue, with United conceding four against Leicester, two versus Atalanta and being hit for five in a truly miserable humiliation by fierce rivals Liverpool last weekend.

Before that, Red Devils captain Harry Maguire had been sidelined with a calf problem, meaning it has been more than a month since the hugely under-pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to field his first-choice defensive pairing.

But that could be the case at Tottenham, where Solskjaer will surely need a result amid the intense speculation over his future.

Varane’s compatriot Anthony Martial could similarly return to the United matchday squad in north London, having also resumed training in the aftermath of a knock that has seen him miss the last three games.

However, Paul Pogba is unavailable as he begins a three-match suspension following his woeful challenge on Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita just 15 minutes after coming on at Old Trafford that brought a straight red card after a VAR review.

Predicted Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo.
