Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane are both missing from the Manchester United lineup to face Bournemouth at Old Trafford tonight in the Premier League.

Harry Maguire comes into the side and will partner Victor Lindelof in the heart of the United defence, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw flanking them.

Casemiro and Christian Eriksen continue in central midfield.

Anthony Martial continues up front and David de Gea is in goal.

Diogo Dalot is back in training and made the bench along with Tom Heaton, Martinez, Malacia, Varane, Anthony Elanga, Scott McTominay, Fred and Garnacho.
