Yet another big chance to push the top 4, and put pressure on both Liverpool and Arsenal before their game later in the day.
Mourinho on Luke Shaw: "I have good news for you, he is in the squad for tomorrow. You don't need to go and take pictures at the Lowry. He’s selected so he’s playing or being on the bench. He becomes again an option to us. Now obviously he needs some opportunities to feel alive, to play some minutes on the pitch."
Rumoured team: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Shaw, Herrera, Pogba, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Ibrahimovic.
Hopefully Shaw has turned a corner, a start would certainly suggest he's realised what he's got and what he might be about to throw away if he doesn't work hard for it.

Not convinced by the Smalling/Bailly partnership thus far. Smalling been well below par all season. Bailly raw and has performed best with a cool head next to him (Blind).

Lingard deserving of another start, delighted for him last weekend.
Official team: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Carrick, Pogba, Mata, Rooney, Martial, Ibrahimovic.

Subs: Romero, Blind, Smalling, Fellaini, Herrera, Lingard, Rashford.
Yep... that CB partnership dropped and no Rojo at LB, Mourinho clearly unhappy with that last weekend. Surprised Herrera left out but assume he's been given a rest although hasn't convinced in a 2. First league start for Rooney since December comes as a surprise.
