Fred returns: predicted Man Utd line-up vs Brentford

Manchester United are back in action on Monday evening as they aim to end the season on a high note after a deeply disappointing second half of the season.

United avoided defeat against Chelsea earlier this week despite Thomas Tuchel’s side dominating proceedings and Ralf Rangnick will be aiming to end the campaign positively.

The 90-minute affair is Rangnick’s last game at Old Trafford, with the 63-year-old now set to take up a consultancy role as well as become the manager of the Austrian national team.

Exciting winger Alejandro Garnacho made his senior debut for the club in that 1-1 draw with Chelsea and the Argentinian will be hoping to be involved again in the last home game of the season. Rangnick was dealt a heavy blow earlier this week, with Harry Maguire and Jadon Sancho unlikely to feature again.

He could, however, be welcoming back an integral part of the team as Fred seems to have recovered from the muscle injury he sustained in the loss to Everton last month.

Further up the pitch, Ronaldo is likely to lead the line once again, with Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Elanga almost shoe-ins at this point.

There was also a positive update on Edinson Cavani, who has endured a torrid second season at the club. The Uruguayan forward has barely featured this year and scored just two goals.

Predicted Manchester United line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Lindelof, Telles; Matic, Fred; Elanga, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo
