Jose Mourinho has made six changes, including dropping embarrassed pair Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, as Manchester United look to bounce back from their defeat to Brighton against Tottenham.

Bailly and Lindelof came under fire for two poor individual displays in the 3-2 reverse on the south coast, with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling the new centre-back pairing for Monday night’s game at Old Trafford.

Anthony Martial, Juan Mata and Lindelof have dropped out of the team completely, while Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and the returning Nemanja Matic are the other new faces in the starting XI. Alexis Sanchez, who missed the Brighton game with a dead leg, has been named on the bench.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been included in Tottenham’s team and has also retained the captaincy, despite being charged with drink driving last week.

Elsewhere, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele have been drafted in for Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies respectively.
