Pogba & Matic Ousted, Rashford Starts: Man Utd vs Derby County Strongest Possible Line-up

Manchester United will play host to Championship side Derby County in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday.

United ended a winless run of four games on Monday with an impressive 2-0 victory over Everton and are now favourite to win the game against Derby County on Friday.

While Ashley Young will be out of selection due to suspension, key first team players including Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Chris Smalling, Antonio Valencia, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romeru Lukaku are also out of selection due to injury.

Knowing fully well the league title is out of reach and having been knocked out of the Carabao Cup, Mourinho will certainly field in a strong squad that can only guaranty three maximum points.

However, we also expect the Portuguese tactician to give the young lads an opportunity to show case their talents.

Axel Tuanzebe is expected to partner Marcos Rojo at the centre-back while Scott Mc Tominay replaces Nemaja Matic at the central midfield.

France sensational midfielder Paul Pogba could be given a rest while Juan Mata pair Ander Hererra at the heart of United midfield also.

In the absence of Lukaku and Ibrahimovic, England star Marcus Rashford will be expected to lead the attack while Henrkh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial plays from the flank.

Argentine shot stopper Sergio Romero will be expected to stay in-between the sticks while first choice goalkeeper David De Gea is given a rest.

Here is our predicted line-up for United game vs Derby County:

Romero, Blind, Tuanzebe, Rojo, Darmian, Mc Tominay, Herrera, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Martial and Rashford.
