Manchester United have two games to secure the solitary point they need to book their place in next season’s Champions League.
Before the visit of Fulham on the final day of the season, United will have the chance to get the job done when fellow west Londoners Chelsea head to Old Trafford on Thursday.
Here’s how Erik ten Hag could set up for this one.
GK: David de Gea – The Golden Glove winner has 17 clean sheets to his name, one less than his Premier League best of 18 from the 2017/18 season.
RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – Wan-Bissaka has had a fantastic resurgence under Ten Hag and will be tasked with keeping Chelsea’s speedy wingers under control.
CB: Raphael Varane – Back from injury and raring to go, Varane is an obvious starter.
CB: Victor Lindelof – With Lisandro Martinez (and Phil Jones) out injured, Lindelof is the clear partner to Varane.
LB: Luke Shaw – One of the top left-backs in the league this season, Shaw will be a regular feature in TOTYs across the country.

DM: Casemiro – His overhead kick sealed the win over Bournemouth last time out and Casemiro will happily take that sort of responsibility once again.
DM: Christian Eriksen – This may be the last time Eriksen faces Chelsea before his former boss, Mauricio Pochettino, takes to the dugout.
RM: Antony – United’s attempt to praise one of Antony’s dribbles on Twitter ended up backfiring as critics began to question the Brazilian’s methods.
AM: Bruno Fernandes – Fernandes has been a bit hot-and-cold recently and could do with a top showing here.
LM: Jadon Sancho – Sancho has really struggled to find form this season and is at risk of losing his place to someone like Alejandro Garnacho.
ST: Marcus Rashford – Anthony Martial may have sulked his way back to the bench with his reaction to his withdrawal against Bournemouth. Rashford should be fit again and could head straight up top.
