Manager Jose Mourinho’s starting line up has leaked once again, and a leaked Matchday squad eleven has found its way online ahead of the Red Devils Enhlish Premier League encounter against Merseyside giant Everton which is expected kicking off at 4:oopm later on Sunday.
The leaked Manchester United starting eleven comes courtesy of local publication Manchester Evening News who are claiming that the former Chelsea, Real Madrid, Porto and Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has opted to make two key changes to the starting line up that were defeated by Italian Serie A champions Juventus during the week.
The media report suggests that South American star Antonio Valencia will return to the starting line-up for versetile Ashley Young and misfiring Belgium international striker Romelu Lukaku has been left on the bench for Brazil international midfielder Fred.
It looks like the former Chelsea and Everton striker won’t have the opportunity to get one over his ex club Everton tonight.
This could see the Portuguese tactician, who is tagged one of the best on the planet, utilise one of England international striker Marcus Rashford or France international forward Anthony Martial in amore central position rather than deploying the forwards in their usual role on the flank.
Check out the leaked line-up below:

It will be intruiguing to see if the Red Devils fortunes going forward get a boost after the bold decision from Jose Mourinho to bench Romelu Lukaku against his former side.
The Red Devils currently sitting in 10th spot in the Premier League and Jose Mourinho’s boys will need to start to turnaround from their rather poor start to the league campaign or they will risk failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
