Anthony Martial missed the most recent match against Huddersfield through illness, and he may recover in time for the Bournemouth fixture. Romelu Lukaku is expected to return from compassionate leave, while Alexis Sanchez has travelled to England from Chile to finish his recovery from injury. Ander Herrera is expected to return to the squad and Eric Bailly may feature again in the back four.

Bournemouth will miss Simon Francis, who was injured in the Boxing Day match against Tottenham Hotspur. If they maintain their 3-4-3 formation, they will likely use Ryan Fraser or Tyrone Mings in the right wing-back position. Diego Rico may be rotated into the lineup too.

Here is how the sides could line up:

Manchester United (4-3-3): De Gea; Young, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; Herrera, Matic, Pogba; Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford

Bournemouth (3-4-3): Begovic; Simpson, Ake, Cook; Mings, Lerma, Surman, Rico; Brooks, Wilson, Fraser
