Another star who could rejoin the action is Luke Shaw. An operation stemming from his horrific broken leg injury, originally suffered back in 2015, has seen him sidelined since early April but he is supposedly deemed read to play again. United are better defensively with him in the side, but Rangnick may opt to stick with the more attacking Alex Telles rather than throw the Englishman straight back in at the deep end.
Eric Bailly’s prospective comeback is currently up in the air after battling a back problem. Whether that makes a difference to United’s starting XI is another matter altogether, given that the Ivorian has only featured in four Premier League matches all season.
