Confirmed Starting XI: Rojo and Shaw return; Pogba drops to the bench, Jones dropped completely!

Manchester United face Huddersfield Town in the Premier League at Old Trafford this afternoon. David Wagner’s side were the first team to beat United in the league this season with Jose Mourinho looking for a response from that and the defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Wednesday evening which saw Christian Eriksen score in the first 11 second of the match and Phil Jones score an own goal in the match.

This match will also mark the start of the 60th anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster, which saw eight players killed on the 6th February 1958. United will be wearing black armbands for the match, the closest to be played at home around the anniversary of the tragedy. United owe it to the Busby Babes to put things right and send a message to the rest of the Premier League this afternoon.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Shaw;

Matic, McTominay;

Mata, Lingard, Sanchez;

Lukaku

Substitutes:

Romero; Lindelof, Young; Pogba, Carrick; Martial, Rashford
