Erik ten Hag has named his starting lineup for Manchester United’s Europa League match against Omonia Nicosia at Old Trafford.
Christian Eriksen comes off the bench for Manchester United tonight.
Erik ten Hag has named his starting lineup for Manchester United’s Europa League clash with Omonia Nicosia this evening at Old Trafford, making a few changes.
United, who defeated Omonia 3-2 in Cyprus exactly a week ago, will be looking for their third consecutive victory in all competitions, following their 2-1 victory at Everton on Sunday. The Reds came back from a goal down to win all three points, thanks to goals from Antony and Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half.
Ten Hag will be hoping that his team can continue their recent good form and move one step closer to the Europa League knockout stages this evening, as it is their first home game in more than a month. Unsurprisingly, the Dutchman has made three changes to his starting lineup following Sunday’s victory on Merseyside.
Tyrell Malacia, Fred, and Ronaldo have replaced Luke Shaw, Christian Eriksen, and Anthony Martial, who is unavailable due to injury. Eriksen is not starting for the first time this season.
Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho, and Alejandro Garnacho are among those named to the substitutes’ bench. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, and Donny van de Beek are among those out due to injury.
Ten Hag will be hoping for more of the same after making only three changes to his team as United seeks a third consecutive Europa League victory. The decision to give Eriksen a rest has gotten the most attention from United fans in the immediate aftermath of the team’s announcement.
MEN Sport has examined what some Manchester United fans have said in response to Ten Hag’s decision to bench Eriksen.
Ten Hag’s decision to rest Eriksen has been well received by supporters, as evidenced by the messages displayed in the tweets above. They have praised the United manager for his decision, citing the number of games he has played this season.
De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, Fred, Fernandes; Antony, Ronaldo, Rashford are the starters for Manchester United.
Dubravka, Heaton, Varane, Shaw, McTominay, Iqbal, Eriksen, Pellistri, Elanga, Garnacho, Sancho are the substitutes.
