It Is Confirmed That Manchester United XI — Southampton: Bruno Fernandes Will Play in Midfield


Erik ten Hag invited Jadon Sancho to today’s Premier League match against Southampton at Old Trafford.

As Fred gives way, Casemiro remains the only starting midfielder, so Bruno Fernandes is likely to return to the number 8 role.

Sancho could either play on the left flank with Rashford in front and Weghorst at number 10, or Weghorst could be in front, with Sancho at number 10 and Rashford on the left.

Anthony will almost certainly play on the right wing.

In defense, Aaron Van Bissaka replaces the out-of-form Diogo Dalot, who falls to the bench.

Rafael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are central defenders, Luke Shaw is left-back, and David de Gea is in goal.

Bruno Fernandes retains the captain’s armband in the absence of Harry Maguire.

Anthony Martial is still not on the bench, despite the fact that Ten Hag said he could take part.

Along with Dalot, Tom Heaton, Harry Maguire, Tyrel Malasia, Cobby Mainu, Fred, Scott McTominay, Alejandro Garnacho and Facundo Pellistri perform.

Viktor Lindelof is not in the squad.

The match starts at Old Trafford at 14:00.
