Ten Hag to make changes after Anfield humiliation: predicted Man United line-up vs Real Betis

Manchester United enjoyed a brilliant end to February after they eliminated Barcelona from the Europe League just days before winning the Carabao Cup – the first bit of silverware the club has won since 2017.

That week was, however, followed up with the club’s worst-ever defeat in Premier League history as Erik ten Hag’s men were humiliated at Anfield, conceding a whopping seven goals.

The embarrassing 90 minutes against Liverpool have sparked an inquest into some players and Ten Hag is among the people to have publicly criticised his players.

United suffered heavy defeats earlier this season and Ten Hag did well to force a reaction – it’s now his job to repeat that trick and make sure it does not become a habit to capitulate once every couple of months.

Thankfully, the result against Liverpool will not be allowed to marinate for too long as United are getting ready to welcome Real Betis to Old Trafford, with Ten Hag expected to make a host of changes.

David de Gea is highly likely to keep his place and much of the same backline could feature, with the only exception being Aaron Wan-Bissaka coming in for Diogo Dalot.

Casemiro played the entire 90 minutes against Liverpool but sustained an injury in the game and will need to be assessed before a decision is taken on him. Ten Hag would be wise to give his midfield lieutenant a rest, with Marcel Sabitzer likely to play in his place.

Fred will keep his place, with Jadon Sancho, Alejandro Garnacho, Marcus Rashford and Woug Weghorst all playing to make up a four-man frontline.

Predicted Manchester United line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Fred, Sabitzer; Sancho, Weghorst, Garnacho; Rashford

  1. How long do we after put up with weghorst wouldn’t get a game in National league we do waste some money

  2. That’s the spirit, you posters above: get behind the players! Weghorst may not be a goal-machine ( ok, he definitely isn’t ) but his contribution in terms of pressing and creating chances for others is there for all to see.
