Manchester United have welcomed back Scottish midfielder Scott McTominay to the starting lineup for their clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is back into the starting XI for their midweek game against Tottenham Hotspur. The Scotsman missed the last three matches due to injury, but is fit again and has been named by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the starting XI, in place of Andreas Pereira.
That is one of the four alterations made by Solskjaer to the lineup that started the weekend clash against Aston Villa. One of the changes comes in the backline, with club captain Ashley Young returning to the fold at left-back at the expense of Brandon Williams. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof all start again with David de Gea in goal.

Jesse Lingard is back in the starting XI, replacing Juan Mata as Manchester United’s No. 10 against Tottenham. The England international will be flanked by Daniel James and Marcus Rashford, while Fred will be McTominay’s partner in the middle of the park.
Another significant change comes in the attack as academy product Mason Greenwood leads the line for Manchester United in place of Anthony Martial, who drops out of the matchday squad due to the recurrence of his muscular injury. Mata and Pereira are the only attacking options at Manchester United’s disposal from the bench.
