Man Utd team news leaks for crunch Tottenham clash as Ralf Rangnick dealt setback


Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has been dealt a crushing blow for Saturday’s clash with Tottenham after David De Gea’s alleged positive Covid test. The Spaniard’s absence is set to land Dean Henderson with the starting berth at Old Trafford, in a game which could have a telling effect on the race for Champions League qualification. 

United and Spurs both come into Saturday’s encounter with two drastically different points to prove. 

Last time out, the Red Devils were trounced 4-1 by local rivals Manchester City after a dismal second-half display. 

They will therefore look to bounce back against Spurs, who must show fans that their 5-0 demolition of Everton was not a one-off. 

The Lilywhites’ form has been patchy since Antonio Conte took charge, and time is running out for them to find a streak of consistency if they are to mount a meaningful challenge for fourth place. 

United are also losing ground in the race, and may be without first-choice stopper De Gea on Saturday afternoon. 

Manchester Evening News claim that 31-year-old has tested positive for Covid, forcing Rangnick to call upon Henderson on his 25th birthday.
