Questions do however surround Raphaël Varane, Marcel Sabitzer, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial, but Varane, Sabitzer, and Rashford are all anticipated to feature in the XI assuming they pass late assessments, while Martial would likely feature in the matchday squad on the bench if he too is deemed fit for service.
