Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was able to rest a number of key players like Victor Lindelof, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Ashley Young in the game against Fulham. Those that played, put in a real show with the likes of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial excelling. United will play their first choice starting eleven which means Juan Mata, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez start the game on the bench. The trio though has a lot of experience and their services will come in handy if things are not going to plan. Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian are the two players missing for the Red Devils although it is highly unlikely they would have made the cut even if they were fit. Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly should be the centre back pairing for United although Chris Smalling’s calmness makes a case for him.
