The confirmed Man Utd XI for yet another massive Premier League fixture vs Sheffield United has been named. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer promised changes, well, we have them…
At this stage in the season, each and every Premier League game is massive. Win tonight and we’re back atop the table ahead of a massive game against Arsenal this coming Saturday.
Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United may sit at the bottom end of the table, though their position feels somewhat false given how well they’ve played at times.
Make no mistake about it, this one isn’t an easy three points. To a man, United will have to be at it from minute one in order to secure a positive result here.
Changes were always going to be made here, with a couple of big decisions made by Solskjaer in the way of the team news. Thanks to the official club Twitter account for the starting XI.
Confirmed Man Utd XI vs Sheffield United in full:
David de Gea starts in between the sticks here after getting a rare break at the weekend.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is named as the starting right-back, simply because there are no other options in that slot right now. Alex Telles comes into the team which is a nice opportunity for the Brazilian. Harry Maguire plays alongside Axel Tuanzebe.
Nemanja Matic sits at the base of midfield here, with his passing and experience set to be key. Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba both start this one, showing Solskjaer’s intent to get all three points.
Mason Greenwood plays after scoring a lovely goal against Liverpool, with Anthony Martial coming back into the XI. Marcus Rashford is fit after an injury scare, with Edinson Cavani dropping to the bench.
Donny van de Beek, Luke Shaw, Fred and Daniel James are all amongst the subs. However, there’s no Eric Bailly, which does bring up concerns about a potential injury. Surprise surprise…
Come on United!!
