Sports Mole looks at how Manchester United could line up against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.
Manchester United interim head coach Ralf Rangnick is expected to select a strong side for Friday's FA Cup fourth-round contest with Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.
Rangnick has confirmed that Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw will both be involved, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be in the squad following a spell on the sidelines through illness.
Jadon Sancho and Victor Lindelof were both unavailable before the break due to personal issues; Sancho is now back, but Lindelof will miss the contest through illness.
Edinson Cavani has been given extra time off following his involvement for Uruguay over the international break, while Eric Bailly (ankle) and Jesse Lingard (personal) are also out of the match.
Mason Greenwood has been suspended by the club and will not be involved for the foreseeable future, meaning that Marcus Rashford could start on the right, with Anthony Elanga retaining his spot on the left.
Man United are in Premier League action against Burnley on February 8, but Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to lead the line, having had a spell of recovery since the victory over West Ham United.
Dean Henderson, who remained at the club beyond the January deadline, might again find himself on the bench due to David de Gea's excellent form.
Fred's expected absence will open the door for Nemanja Matic to play alongside McTominay in midfield, while Bruno Fernandes is likely to feature as the number 10 for the Red Devils, who recorded a 1-0 win over West Ham in their last match before the break.
Manchester United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Elanga; Ronaldo
