Manchester United have lost four from their last five. The pressure is starting to mount on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Red Devils simply have to bounce back with a home victory against West Ham United tomorrow night, although that’s far easier said than done. Manuel Pellegrini’s men are more than capable of causing the upset, we’ll have to be at our best.
Solskjaer has set a fifteen-point target from United’s last five games, that simply has to be down to twelve come tomorrow night. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the starting line-up we believe the Baby Faced Assassin will call upon.
David de Gea will start and I’m betting he’ll have a busier afternoon than people think – particularly with the defensive crisis United have at the moment as both Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are suspended. Diogo Dalot will start in the right-back slot while Marcos Rojo will make a rare appearance as the left-back. Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling will play.
Scott McTominay has arguably been United’s best player over the last month or so. Those displays deserve to be rewarded with a consecutive start. The same can be said about Fred. As for Paul Pogba, he’ll get the nod but we need to see more from him.
Romelu Lukaku was isolated on Wednesday, I felt sorry for him. He will spearhead the attack tomorrow with Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard playing either side of the Belgian.
