Also, Luke Shaw replaced Malacia at the left-back position while Varane was dropped.

Recall that Martial sustained an injury a few days ago, and for this reason, Bruno Fernandes has joined Manchester United’s attack.
With Ronaldo’s lack of fitness and Martial injury, Manchester United’s front trio is Sancho, Martial, and Fernandes.
