Manchester United have moved on to a three-way defense for tonight’s crucial clash with Tottenham.

Raphael Varane comes back from injury and starts alongside Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof in the backline.

Varane – a £ 34million summer arrival from Real Madrid – has missed each of United’s last three games because of the issue, United conceding four against Leicester, two against Atalanta and being hit for five in a truly miserable humiliation by fierce rivals Liverpool last weekend.

Before that, Red Devils captain Harry Maguire had been sidelined with a calf problem, meaning it has been over a month since extremely under pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was able to field the two defenders in same time.

Edinson Cavani also enters the squad as he debuts with Cristiano Ronaldo, with Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood both on the bench.

Varane compatriot Anthony Martial is not returning to the team of the day in north London, having also resumed training following a blow that caused him to miss the last three games.

Paul Pogba is unavailable as he begins a three-match suspension following his terrible challenge against Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita just 15 minutes after entering Old Trafford who received a red card after a VAR exam.

Man United’s lineup

Man United XI: De Gea, Lindelof, Varane, Maguire, Wan Bissaka, McTominay, Fred, Shaw, Bruno Fernandes, Cavani, Ronaldo

Subtitles: Bailly, Rashford, Greenwood, Lingard, Dalot, Sancho, Henderson, Matic, Van de Beek
