Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick says skipper Harry Maguire is no guaranteed starter.
Maguire was fit to begin the 3-1 win at Brentford after a recent injury but manager Ralf Rangnick preferred to stick with the pairing of Lindelof and Raphael Varane.
The boss said: “Harry from the first day I arrived he played. He received an injury in the Burnley game and was out for the next two or three games.
“He was fully fit for the first time for the Brentford game and I explained to him that I didn’t want to change anything because I thought Victor and Rapha were doing well and their partnership was working well.
“Now with Victor being out, Harry will play from the beginning and obviously again he will be the captain of the team.
“In a back four it’s not only the individual performance of each player it’s how they cooperate and work together and this is not the first time Harry and Rapha will play together.
“They did it quite a few times in the last couple of months and I’m very positive that it will be a good partnership for the game.”
