The Red Devils head to Goodison Park for Saturday’s early kick-off in a bid to get back to winning ways and meet a side with just two wins in their last nine league games.

Frank Lampard’s Toffees hover just a point above the relegation zone and will be fighting for their lives on Saturday.

And interim coach Rangnick confirmed that he will do without some players for the duel.

Luke Shaw was sidelined at half-time against Leicester and is sidelined for the game with problems related to the leg he broke in 2015.

Rangnick confirmed the England star would be out for between two and three weeks after having metal bolts removed from his leg.

Also in the treatment room are Raphael Varane and Scott McTominay, with the latter out with a foot injury.

Elsewhere, Edinson Cavani is also staying out.

In a new look back at the Leicester encounter, Alex Telles and Victor Lindelof are expected to start alongside skippers Harry Maguire and Diogo Dalot.


McTominay’s injury means Paul Pogba and Fred are likely to work together in midfield.

Ronaldo’s return means Bruno Fernandes will not repeat the role of false nine he played against the Foxes, returning to his usual number 10 instead.

Jadon Sancho is likely to keep his place at left flank, while Marcus Rashford could return to the starting XI after being benched for the last two games in all competitions.

Or Rangnick could opt to stay on the right-back with youngster Anthony Elanga while Rashford is in poor form this season.

Nemanja Matic remains another option in midfield, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back could win against Dalot.
