Team news
Paul Pogba is expected to make his first start since September having impressed in a cameo display at Tottenham.

Mason Greenwood looked much better than Daniel James in the same game and could also start.

Sheffield United are without the banned John Egan and goalkeeper Dean Henderson who is ineligible to face his parent club.

Jack O’Connell remains a major doubt and the Blades could field a makeshift back line.

Expected starting XI’s
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
Sheffield United (3-5-2): Moore; Basham, Jagielka, Robinson; Baldock, Lundstrum, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McBurnie, Mousset
