by Sam Peoples

Manchester United starting XI vs Northampton: Romero, Fosu-Mensah, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Carrick, Herrera, Memphis, Young, Rooney.

Subs: Johnstone, Darmian, Fellaini, Lingard, Mata, Rashford and Ibrahimovic

Jose Mourinho has made plenty of changes to his Manchester United team to face Northampton with Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Michael Carrick, Memphis Depay and Ashley Young starting.

David de Gea, Eric Bailly and Paul Pogba have all been completely rested.


It’s still a very strong team from Man United tonight and gives a few players the opportunity to show their worth to Mourinho.

Tonight is an unnecessarily important game for United. Off the back of three losses, Jose Mourinho’s side can ill afford to lose another going into our match with Leicester City on Saturday. We need to get a win and put the last week to bed.

The game is live on Sky Sports 1 tonight. Kick-off is 7.45pm.
