Predicted XI: [4-2-3-1] McTominay to start against Bournemouth? Hojlund to make his mark in the Premier League?



“He was, in my opinion, the best player on the field last night, not McTominay; I’m so relieved Ten Hag is beginning to trust Him”: Paul Scholes identifies the Manchester United star who was “best player on the field” last night instead of McTominay.XI Prediction: [4-2-3-1] Should McTominay start in place of Bournemouth? Will Hojlund establish himself in the Premier League?On Saturday afternoon, Manchester United resume Premier League play at Old Trafford when they host Bournemouth at the Theatre of Dreams. Wednesday evening at Old Trafford, United defeated Chelsea 2-1, rebounding back from the loss to Newcastle.Scott McTominay, who has amassed six goals for United so far this season, is in excellent form. For some reason, a subset of supporters appears to detest this player. He scored both of United’s goals. However, when Fred was present, his performance was comparatively lower.


United will be looking to earn an additional three Premier League points at home prior to Tuesday’s must-win UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford. Erik ten Hag will have faith in the ability of this United squad to defeat an in form Bournemouth.


Predicted starting lineup for Manchester United: 4-2-3-1 Onana;


Shaw, Dalot, Maguire, and Evans;


Mr. McTominay Amrabat;


Fernandes Antony, Garnacho


The Hojlund


The custodian is Onana.

Although Andre Onana is a gifted goalkeeper, his start to the season with United has not been ideal. Although it was a howler, his subpar goal against Chelsea was the equalizer for the London club. However, it was not as egregious as some of the howlers he has committed this season.Next month, the Cameroonian will depart United to participate in the African Cup of Nations. This could be problematic for United, as Altay Bayindir is set to make his début for the club this season. Eventually, Onana may develop into an outstanding custodian for United; only time will tell.


Until then, it is prudent to provide the goalkeeper with support, as doing so may inspire him to perform at his highest level in the Premier League and beyond. United have an unsatisfactory history of selecting goalkeepers, so presumably this one performs admirably and without significant complications.


Shaw; Dalot; Maguire; Evans; Defender

At the moment, United’s defense is facing challenges due to the injuries sustained by Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia. However, the club has secured the services of Sergio Reguilon and Jonny Evans as substitutes. While there is still much room for improvement, it is just one of those circumstances.positions at fullback in opposition to Bournemouth Luke Shaw should be on the left side and Diogo Dalot should remain on the right. Currently, they are the most viable alternatives, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka vying for a starting spot and Reguilon serving as a backup in case the game’s course of action changes.


Harry Maguire will maintain his position at the heart of the defense following his outstanding performance that earned him the Premier League Player of the Month award for November. For the England defender’s companion, Jonny Evans, who returned from injury against Chelsea, should make his debut.


Midfielders: McTominay and Amrabat

United’s midfield has undergone numerous changes this season, and with three players out injured (Casemiro, Mason Mount, and Christian Eriksen) and three remaining (Sofyan Amrabat, Scott McTominay, and Kobbie Mainoo), it appears that United are riding on a wave of talent.


It is always encouraging to see young players inducted into the squad, but it is especially impressive to see Scott McTominay perform to the best of his ability. After receiving so much criticism at United, it is incredible to see him as the club’s current leading scorer. To be fair, he has scored some outstanding goals this season.


Sofyan Amrabat is gaining ground in the Premier League and has been collaborating effectively with his Manchester United comrades; his manager has also praised him. The Moroccan could be an asset to United on loan, potentially leading to a permanent contract with the organization.Midfielders who attack: Antony, Fernandes, and Garnacho

Wednesday evening, United’s attacking midfield dominated Chelsea; on Saturday afternoon, Ten Hag will be looking for the same from his squad at Old Trafford. Against Chelsea, Alejandro Garnacho assisted on McTominay’s game-winning goal, and he will be eager to contribute once more.


Antony was a dynamic opponent against Chelsea; it was unfortunate that he did not contribute to any goals. It was heartening to observe that he appeared to understand precisely what to do and how to do it; may this trend continue. The Brazilian has experienced a tumultuous season; this moment may mark a change in course.


The captain, Bruno Fernandes, had a difficult match against Chelsea, having missed the penalty in the ninth minute and being followed ten minutes later by a goal from McTominay. Manchester United’s star midfielder is Portuguese, and he will be disappointed that he is failing to score or provide an assist.


In progress: Hojlund

Rasmus Hojlund has yet to establish himself in the Premier League, having scored only once for Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League this season. United appear poised to be eliminated from the competition next week, when they face Bayern Munich in the final group stage match.


Hojlund is a gifted athlete who has yet to score in the league. This is a challenge that Ten Hag will undoubtedly address, as I have no doubt that he will succeed. Wednesday night’s performance by United against Chelsea could have served as a springboard for the Dane to score.Hojlund is essentially the only striker capable of effectively leading the line for United at this time; the club should recruit a supporting player in January or next summer at the latest. It is evident that Anthony Martial lacks the ability to compete with the Dane this season.
