Manchester United have been dynamite in the Premier League under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Now, attentions turn to the FA Cup for the first time this season, with a home game against Reading just on the horizon.

The Red Devils host The Royals this Saturday at 12:30, with Solskjaer likely to ring the changes for the encounter. The game itself should see some superstar names involved, while there could be the opportunity for youth to make their mark.

Anyway, let’s dive right into the predicted starting line-up for the game.

David de Gea should rightfully be rested for this one, with Sergio Romero in line to make his first start of 2019. Diogo Dalot will get his chance to start again under Solskjaer in the right-back role, with Matteo Darmian starting opposite him. Picking the centre-back combination has been tough due to injuries and suspensions, but hopefully, Marcos Rojo will get the nod alongside Phil Jones.

Marouane Fellaini will make his first start under Solskjaer, as will Scott McTominay. Fred will get an opportunity to force his way back into the team on a regular basis, so hopefully, he plays well and leaves a good impression on the manager.

Romelu Lukaku is on his way and hasn’t started a game in a few weeks, so this would be the perfect chance for him. Alexis Sanchez is only just back from injury so the Chilean should get the nod. Then comes the most exciting name on the team sheet, Mason Greenwood. The superstar youngster has been patiently waiting to show the world what he can do, and it’ll be exciting to see how he fares against a Championship side.
