Scott McTominay returned to fitness and came off the bench in the second half against Watford, which does indicate that the midfielder could start in midfield against Club Brugge. Axel Tuanzebe, Paul Pgba and Marcus Rashford remain absent due to injuries for the hosts. Andreas Periera or Jesse Lingard might get to start, while Bruno Fernandes should continue as the playmaker. Anthony Martial is expected to lead the attack.
