CONFIRMED: Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan, Pogba, and Martial start against Spurs

Manchester United face Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at Old Trafford this afternoon. United, despite being a free-scoring side in the cup competitions, have stuttered in the league this season. Their last win in the league came against Swansea City on the 6th November, their last win at home was against Leicester City on the 24th September. United have drawn six matches in the league this season, four of those have been at Old Trafford, their last three matches in the league ended in draws, with United playing some fluid attacking football in matches either side of the draws, something which is beggars belief. United need to get something from the match against Spurs, that cannot be anything less than a victory. Manchester City fell to a 4-2 defeat away to Leicester City on Saturday, a match which had shown up Pep Guardiola’s side. United sit in sixth place in the league, six points shy of Spurs and nine points shy of City in fourth place. Beating Spurs today will cut down that deficit, which United need to take advantage of. When rival teams have dropped points before, so have United and that needs to change today! Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both teams this afternoon.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Darmian;

Carrick, Herrera;

Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Martial;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Bailly, Blind; Mata, Fellaini; Rooney, Rashford

Tottenham Hotspur:

Lloris;

Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose;

Wanyama, Dembele;

Eriksson, Alli, Son;

Kane

Substitutes:

Vorm; Wimmer, Davies; N’koudou, Dier, Sissoko, Winks
