Back-to-back wins has changed the mood around the club after a dismal start to their latest new era under Erik ten Hag, results which coincided with both Ronaldo and club captain Harry Maguire being dropped.
United face table-topping Arsenal on Sunday before beginning their Europa League campaign four days later, meaning games are coming thick and fast for the foreseeable. Ronaldo, and perhaps Maguire, should see more minutes to come and the former will be looking at Anthony Elanga’s spot to take.
Casemiro is likely to be handed a full debut tonight, after 10 minutes against Southampton, with Scott McTominay the most likely to make way.
Anthony Martial missed that game and may only be fit for a place on the bench at the King Power Stadium this evening. Antony won’t be involved after officially completing his £84million move from Ajax on deadline day.
Manchester United predicted XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen; Rashford, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo
