It is the week that is likely to decide the Champions League places for next season, as Manchester United go on the road one last time to face Huddersfield Town.

The Red Devils have had a poor run of games in the past, securing victory only once in their previous six games across all competitions.

Their opponents, on the other hand, are already relegated, sitting rock bottom in the table, and have nothing to fight for during the penultimate league encounter. Let us have a look at the likely squads that the two teams will field on Sunday.


Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was non-committal in his pre-match press conference when he was quizzed as to precisely which players were out due to injury.

It is clear that Eric Bailly will be out for the rest of the season, and that academy graduate Mason Greenwood won’t be making the away trip due to injury either.

Apart from them, the fitness of Marcus Rashford, Chris Smalling, Antonio Valencia, and Romelu Lukaku still remain in some doubt.

The manager is likely to field the Spanish trio of De Gea, Mata, and Herrera once more. In the case of the goalkeeper, who has been struggling for form, Sergio Romero’s injury may have a role to play in him keeping his spot.


Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Young, Lindelof, Jones, Shaw
Midfielders: Herrera, Matic, Pogba
Forwards: Mata; Sanchez, Rashford

Formation: 4-3-1-2


Huddersfield Town

Jan Siewert will be just waiting for this season to get over, as the side will be mulling over life in the Championship.

Injuries will likely limit Ben Hamer, Laurent Depoitre, and Philip Billing from playing a part in the encounter, although a late fitness test may change that.


Goalkeeper: Lossl
Defenders: Smith, Christopher, Kongolo, Durm
Midfielders: Hadergjonaj, Mooy, Stankovic, Bacuna, Grant
Forward: Mounie

Formation: 4-5-1
