With Manchester United needing three goals in the second half of their Europa League clash against Liverpool on Thursday, Memphis Depay would have been disappointed not to feature at Old Trafford.
Memphis has been disappointing for the majority of the campaign but he must have been frustrated not to get on and try and change things. He will be hoping to be reinstated to the side for the derby against Manchester City on Sunday:
His inclusion would mean that Marcus Rashford would drop to the bench but his inexperience has been obvious in recent weeks. Elsewhere, Antonio Valencia will be looking to start having completed 45 minutes against Liverpool.
Guillermo Varela was turned inside out by Philippe Coutinho for Liverpool’s goal on Thursday and the youngster may benefit from some time out of the limelight.
As for the game itself, it’s a huge derby with a lot riding on it.
