Ten Hag set to start Martial over Ronaldo vs Liverpool

The Manchester United team selection tonight will be one to watch with Anthony Martial and Raphael Varane set to return to the starting line-up.

As well as Harry Maguire, Erik ten Hag is also expected to drop Cristiano Ronaldo to the bench when Liverpool to travel to Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Sky Sports claim Anthony Martial is expected to take the Portuguese’s place in the team after returning to fitness. The France international missed the first two games of the season and United are still searching for their first point.

Ronaldo started against Brentford but struggled to make an impact in the 4-0 defeat.

Reports suggest Ronaldo remains keen to leave the club and this may suggest that we’ve made progress on other deals such as Antony and Cody Gakpo.

Martial looked right at home when he led the line throughout the pre-season tour and his presence helped Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.

Hopefully, we see more of that against Liverpool and not a repeat of the performances against Brighton and Brentford.

We’ll have the confirmed team news at 7pm.
