Varane to return - How Man Utd could line up against Leeds

Raphael Varane missed Man Utd's last game due to illness but is expected to return to Premier League action this weekend

Manchester United will be able to welcome Raphael Varane back into the starting XI for this weekend's Premier League game against rivals Leeds.

The World Cup winner missed the Brighton victory due to illness but has recovered over the past few days and is expected to slot back into the defence alongside Harry Maguire.

During the week, Man Utd won 2-0 against 10-man Brighton thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes.

The Red Devils are currently fourth in the Premier League, two points adrift of West Ham in fifth and four points behind Chelsea in third, though the Blues do have a game in hand.

In terms of absentees for this one, Edinson Cavani is still out with a groin injury, while Mason Greenwood is still under a club suspension.

David de Gea will start in goal behind a back four of Diogo Dalot, Varane, Maguire and Luke Shaw.

Paul Pogba is poised to return to the central midfield three, perhaps in place of Fred.

Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes will retain their spots.

In attack, Marcus Rashford could be recalled in favour of Anthony Elanga, with Jadon Sancho and Ronaldo also in the front three.
