The confirmed Man United squad news for the huge game vs Leeds United is now in. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a 21-strong party to pick from for today’s game.
With a win here today, Manchester United will keep up the pressure on Liverpool who currently sit at the top of the table. It won’t be easy, though, as Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United play some lovely football.
It has been almost two decades since we’ve seen this fixture take place in the Premier League and it’s a massive shame that they’ll be no fans there to see it.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has developed a tendency to start games slowly. And that’s a habit they simply have to cut out if United have genuine title aspirations. What better way to do that than by thumping our rivals from across the Pennines?
With games coming thick and fast, Solskjaer has to man-manage his squad. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a handful of changes made for this one. The likes of Fred, Donny van de Beek, Luke Shaw and David de Gea will all be feeling well-rested and ready to play after being named amongst the substitutes in midweek.
Thanks to the Manchester Evening News for the scoop, with a 21-strong party spotted at the Lowry Hotel, including the return of key forward, Edinson Cavani.
Confirmed Man United squad vs Leeds United:
David de Gea, Dean Henderson, Lee Grant, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw, Alex Telles, Fred, Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic, Bruno Fernandes, Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Daniel James, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial.
Simply put, you’d like to think that this United squad has enough quality to hurt Leeds United and win this game. That said, we’ll have to be at our absolute best to ensure all three points are won. COME ON YOU REDS!
