Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s young Devils are scheduled to host Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United on Saturday night in their first domestic game back since the Reds’ humiliating 6-1 thrashing against Tottenham Hotspur.
Ahead of the weekend’s important league tie, we have looked at how we expect Solskjaer to line his Red Devils up.
David De Gea
Featured from Brazil during the international break, there is no reason why Telles won’t be handed his United debut on the weekend with Luke Shaw set to drop down to the bench.
Donny van de Beek
I think next weekend’s game against Newcastle United could be the game which the United faithful get to see van de Beek make his first long-awaited Premier League start.
Fernandes’ impending inclusion offers double benefit for Solskjaer who won’t just want to beat Newcastle United, he will undoubtedly be keen to squash recent suggestions that the pair’s relationship suffered during half-time in the game against Spurs.
As mentioned above, I fully expect Solskjaer to favour his 18-year-old wonder-kid over emergency back-up striker Odion Ighalo in light of regular number-nine Martial’s suspension.
