Manchester United visit Watford in the Premier League on Saturday as they look to put a torrid few weeks behind them.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have won just once in their previous six Premier League outings. That 3-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur was sandwiched by a humiliating trouncing by Liverpool and a bitterly shoddy defeat to Manchester City on home soil. Their poor league form places them sixth in the table, three points behind Arsenal in fifth.
Their task on Saturday will be to overcome a Watford side languishing in 17th, having lost three of their four fixtures under new boss Claudio Ranieri. Here's who Solskjaer could deploy to get the job done.
1. Goalkeeper & defenders
David De Gea (GK) - Produced a few superb stops against City - and his own colleagues - last time out and will certainly continue between the sticks.
Victor Lindelof (CB) - Was excellent for Sweden against Spain last time out although the defeat meant he'll be contesting the play-offs for a spot at the World Cup. Maybe his football at United can cheer him up...
Harry Maguire (CB) - Scored twice for England over the international break. He'll be hoping to continue that sort of form for the Red Devils under the watchful eye of Roy Keane.
Eric Bailly (CB) - Should Solskjaer continue with a back three system - which worked well at Spurs - we should see Bailly line up on the left side.
2. Wing-backs and midfielders
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RWB) - Was indescribably calamitous in the Manchester derby but we all know the quality he can demonstrate.
Scott McTominay (CM) - Missed out on international duty through illness, although should be set for a return to action this weekend at Watford.
Fred (CM) - Invariably solid for Brazil, Fred will aim to keep those standards up at club level, again, under the watchful eye of Roy Keane.
Bruno Fernandes (CM) - Was well under par against Manchester City, but his creativity and spatial awareness will likely play a huge part in running the show against Watford.
Luke Shaw (LWB) - Withdrew from the England camp with concussion concerns, but should be available for Saturday's trip to Vicarage Road.
Marcus Rashford (ST) - Like Shaw, Rashford missed out on international duty but should be fit enough to make a return to action after his illness.
Cristiano Ronaldo (ST) - A bitterly disappointing international break for Portugal's captain, but he will now aim to push United forward and notch his fifth Premier League goal of the campaign.
