According to British media reports, Manchester United will go away to the defending champion Manchester City to stage a city derby in this Sunday’s Premier League , but Cristiano Ronaldo, who has not performed well recently, may be arranged on the bench instead of participating in the country. De Gea and Sancho are expected to start the game.
After the international break, Manchester United will join the intensive schedule in the October league, and will also need to face the tough challenge of two games a week. Therefore, in the intensive game, there will also be some unconventional starters to get the opportunity to start, but in the Manchester derby against Manchester City , Manchester United will still offer a strong team to challenge.
De Gea and Sancho have a good chance of starting because they are not involved in the national team, but the chances of Brazilian players such as Anthony and Casemiro may not be high because Brazil has just finished playing Tunisia. A friendly match, including Lisandro also represented Argentina against Jamaica, so these three players have to return to Manchester United for training, so it may be challenging to fully recover in these days.
In addition, in the UEFA Nations League group stage between Ukraine and Scotland, most of McTominay will also represent Scotland.
It is worth mentioning that Cristiano Ronaldo ‘s performance was not very bright in Portugal’s victory over the Czech Republic in the UEFA Europa League group stage. In addition to the team’s game against Spain today, Cristiano Ronaldo, who has formed two single-handed shots, has never been able to break through. Spain’s goal, and his current performance will definitely be factored into Manchester United coach Ten Hag’s consideration, and if Martial or Rashford can return from injury, Ronaldo’s starting chances in the city derby will become lower.
On the other hand, Varane, Malaysia and Eriksen have completed their national team matches earlier, and there should be no major problems in terms of physical recovery.
