The England defender sat out the draw with Chelsea due to suspension and has not covered himself in glory at all this term, but he will expect to come back into the first XI this week.
Luke Shaw remains doubtful with a head injury, so Alex Telles could be handed another start at left-back while Aaron Wan-Bissaka - who gave away the penalty at Stamford Bridge leading to Jorginho's equaliser - holds his place on the right.
Carrick shocked the United fanbase with his decision to bench Cristiano Ronaldo for Sunday's game, but the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will surely take his rightful place up top here.
Man United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Telles; Matic, Fred, McTominay; Fernandes; Sancho, Ronaldo
