Dean Henderson comes into the side in place of David de Gea, as Manchester United prepare to take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made four changes to the side that started in the Manchester Derby last weekend in the Premier League as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. The first shuffle comes in goal, where Dean Henderson starts in place of David de Gea.
In front of the former Sheffield United loanee, Manchester United seemingly line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with the defence seeing the second of four changes. Alex Telles has come in for Luke Shaw in the left-back slot, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka retaining his spot in the side. Victor Lindelof partners captain Harry Maguire at the heart of the Manchester United defence.

Up ahead in midfield, the change in formation has seen Fred and Scott McTominay both drop out of the side, with Nemanja Matic starting in the double pivot alongside Paul Pogba. Both Fred and McTominay are options on the bench along with Donny van de Beek.
Finally, in attack, Solskjaer seems to have picked his strongest possible quartet, with Edinson Cavani unavailable. Anthony Martial returns to the side to lead the line for Manchester United against Sheffield United. Bruno Fernandes reprises the no. 10 role and will play off of Martial while Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are the two wide men.
