After the international break, the games start to come thick and fast for Manchester United.
The Red Devils’ Europa League and Carabao Cup campaigns get underway, with the first Continental game taking place this Thursday at home to Astana.
United are favourites to win the competition at this point, though that’s before the third-placed Champions League teams have dropped into the Europa League.
Anyway, before the game, United fans have made their thoughts clear. They want to see both Mason Greenwood and Angel Gomes make their first starts of the season. There was also several calls for Fred and Tahith Chong to be involved, too…
At the end of the day, Solskjaer has promised these players minutes and this seems the opportune moment to give them their chance. I think Greenwood is a shoe-in to start, though Gomes does deserve a platform to showcase his quality.
Don’t forget that the young attacking midfielder was United’s best presser on tour, and he only has one year left on his deal so if he isn’t playing, he could potentially walk away for free…
Although these games are never the most exciting, it does give the fans a chance to see these top talents in competitive action. Hopefully, they can all impress and prove that they deserve regular starting spots for the foreseeable future.
