Marcus Rashford is set to return to the Manchester United starting line-up for Tuesday’s Premier League game against Bournemouth.

Erik ten Hag dropped the in-form forward to the bench for the win at Wolves after he “overslept” and incurred a disciplinary breach – although he still came on to score the only goal.

Alejandro Garnacho should drop out for Rashford’s return unless Ten Hag deploys the England international up front, leaving Anthony Martial out as a result.

Scott McTominay remains a doubt having missed the last week of action through illness with there still no sign of Jadon Sancho’s return.

The United manager’s biggest decision arguably comes in defence after Luke Shaw’s solid turn at centre-back.


Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof were left on the bench at Wolves despite coming back from illness, with Lisandro Martinez soon to return to action following the World Cup final.

Ten Hag suggested Shaw’s shift has been a short-term decision but reintroducing Martinez would likely mean the somewhat harsh call to drop Tyrell Malacia.

On Monday, the managr said he was “optimistic” both McTominay and Martinez would be ready for the game.

Diogo Dalot is “making good progress” on a hamstring injury but will miss out again.

Ten Hag explained: “We don’t want to take risks with anyone because we know there are many games to come and we need a full squad to cover all the games.”

Predicted Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.
