Manchester United will try to get back on the winning track in the Premier League when they take on West Bromwich Albion on the road tomorrow.
The Red Devils have been inconsistent in the league for the last four games, racking up just five points during this period.
As a result, they have fallen five points behind arch rival Manchester City for first place, having also played an extra match.
His title prospects have been affected by the recent run of results and coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want a good showing from him at The Hawthorns.
The club will enter the game after a slight 1-0 win over West Ham United in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Tuesday night.
David de Gea had a disappointing match against Everton last weekend, where he should have done better to avoid two of three goals conceded in a 3-3 draw.
However, the Spanish international remains an undisputed starter for Solskjaer in the league and should be ahead of Dean Henderson in goal.
Defense should be identical from standstill against the Toffees.
Eric Bailly has returned to training after his shin injury, but Solskjaer may want to make the process easier for him.
Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire should continue in central defense. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is ready to appear in his right back position.
Alex Telles will be benched after his midweek start and will be replaced by Luke Shaw at left back.
Paul Pogba is still on the sidelines with a thigh problem. Scott McTominay and Fred should continue in the central midfield positions.
The former has been in top form this season and recently scored his seventh goal of the season that eliminated the Hammers from the FA Cup.
Both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford made their 250th United appearance against the Hammers midweek, but neither impressed.
Martial is the player who has been out of the starting lineup in recent league games and could be a similar case this weekend.
Mason Greenwood and Rashford are likely to fill the right and left wing positions respectively.
Bruno Fernandes should replace Donny van de Beek at No. 10 with Edinson Cavani leading the line once again.
The Uruguayan international squandered two clear chances against Arsenal, but other than that, he’s been in good scoring form.
He has registered three goals in his five previous league games.
Manchester United expected formation (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani.
