Fernandes starts: confirmed Man United line-up vs Tottenham

Erik ten Hag has named his eleven players to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday evening as the Reds aim to widen the gap between themselves and the Champions League hopefuls.

United have the chance to further cement their place in the top four and a trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will be a stern test for Ten Hag’s men, who will come up against Spurs’ caretaker boss Ryan Mason.

Ten Hag had a number of selection headaches he needed to address going into this game, with Bruno Fernandes named as a doubt following a blow to his ankle in the FA Cup semi-final against Brighton last weekend.

The Portuguese international was seen wearing a protective boot after the game but luckily, he has miraculously recovered in time to start for the Reds against Tottenham.

Harry Maguire missed that game through suspension, leaving Luke Shaw to deputise at centre-back. The United skipper has not been given the nod to return for this game and instead, Shaw will continue to partner Wembley hero Victor Lindelof at the heart of the United defence.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is named in the side again after his impressive performance against Brighton, with Casemiro partnering Christian Eriksen in midfield further up the pitch.

Marcus Rashford keeps his place but is likely to play in the middle after he made his return from injury last week, with Antony and Jadon Sancho also starting to make up a frightening frontline.
