4-2-3-1: Mourinho To Make 9 Changes | Expected Man Utd XI vs Watford
Manchester United take on Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. Here is the team I think Jose Mourinho will pick for the game:
Manchester United will look to end the Premier League campaign on a positive note when they take on Watford at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
Here is the team I think Jose Mourinho will pick for the game:
Goalkeeper: Mourinho has confirmed he’ll give Sergio Romero a rare run out between the sticks with David De Gea rested after securing the Golden Glove with a clean sheet against West Ham last night.
Defence: The United boss has hinted there will be plenty of changes throughout the starting eleven with Eric Bailly and Daley Blind named as two players set for recalls in defence.
Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof are expected to drop out so Phil Jones could keep his place with Mourinho moving to a back four while Ashley Young could also get a recall after being named on the bench at the London Stadium.
Antonio Valencia might be rested so Young could start at right-back with Blind possibly starting ahead of Luke Shaw on the left.
Midfield: Nemanja Matic didn’t travel to London for the West Ham game as he was rested so he could be recalled on Sunday with Ander Herrera making way.
Mourinho has already confirmed Michael Carrick will make his final start ahead of his retirement so Scott McTominay will drop out with Paul Pogba playing in a slightly more advanced role.

Attack: The United boss is ready to freshen things up in attack too as Mourinho has confirmed Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford are all set for recalls after being named on the bench against the Hammers.
Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard are expected to make way after drawing a blank last night with Rashford set to lead the line up front in the continued absence of Romelu Lukaku.
The Belgian international is still in his homeland receiving treatment on an ankle injury so he’s facing a race against time to be fit for the FA Cup final next weekend.
