Thomas Tuchel picks three Manchester United players that could cause problems for Bayern’s defence

Thomas Tuchel is well aware that Manchester United have had a lacklustre start to the campaign, but still expects a tough tie when they go head-to-head with Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening. The Red Devils have overseen two wins and three losses in their opening five games of the season – a poor start by any team’s standards, so even more so for United. Injuries have undoubtedly played a role in the results thus far and Erik ten Hag will be hoping that form picks up when his players gradually return to the fold.
