Coach Roberto Martinez will be Friday, are selection publish for the next friendly of the Red Devils, on Tuesday 27 march (20h45) against Saudi-Arabia. The Spaniard will more than likely have a large group of select, with the eye at the world cup.

In goal, there will surely not change anything. Thibaut Courtois, who Wednesday night in Barcelona two balls through his legs saw the slip, will once again Simon Mignolet, downgraded to bankzitter at Liverpool), Koen Casteels and Matz Sels under. Sels made the last few weeks the impression at Anderlecht, but Martinez will probably stick to his four goalkeepers.

The back can Martinez again rely on the presence of Vincent Kompany. The Man City captain has been a while injury free and ready for the last straight line in the direction of WK. Toby Alderweireld could be last week again the group training sessions resume at Tottenham, but has played the past few months, only one cup match, after which he again relapsed into his hamstring injury. Or Martinez that sufficient finds to his selection to join, is a question mark. Furthermore, Thomas Vermaelen will be fit again after a muscle injury. Christian Kabasele has played in recent weeks, with Watford not with a hamstringletsel, but seems to be ready again, while Leander Dendoncker from Anderlecht with a vormdip faces. Thomas Meunier ran Tuesday on training a contracture in the thigh, but will normally fit hit for the friendly.

The midfield will once again much attention paid to the presence of Radja Nainggolan. The Roman, absent in september and October, was in november for the friendly matches against Mexico and Japan called again by Martinez, but had to self-cancel with an injury. Steven Superior, he should not fear as a competitor. The Burnley midfielder has a serious knee injury, but according to the coach, still not quite out for the count for a world cup selection. He also made Marouane Fellaini the past week, his first speelminuten at Man Utd and also restarted Nacer Chadli training in West Bromwich. That last play is still not in 2018. Anthony Limbombe, who at Club Brugge, one of the seizoensrevelaties is, is a possible replacement.

The front is Michy Batshuayi thanks to its strong start when Borussia Dortmund a certitude has become, though Romelu Lukaku so far still striker number one. Behind them, Christian Benteke and Divock Origi a very mediocre season.

After the match against Saudi Arabia, the Devils until the end of may together again. At the beginning of June follow oefeninterlands against European champion Portugal (2 June), Egypt (6 June) and Costa Rica (June 11). Then take the players to the plane to Russia, where in the first round in group G duels with Panama (18 June in Sochi), Tunisia (23 June in Moscow) and England (28 June in Kaliningrad) wait.
