Youth star makes Man Utd squad to face Fulham, Victor Lindelof left out

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not included Victor Lindelof in his squad to face Fulham.

Manchester United travel to Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon in a Premier League meeting which could see them move into the top four with a win.

Fulham find themselves in a relegation scrap but the mentality of these sides could soon change, once Premier League safety becomes a backs against the wall battle.

The Reds cannot afford to go into the game feeling complacent or with one eye on Tuesday night’s Champions League first leg with Paris Saint-Germain.

However, according to Metro Sport, Solskjaer has dropped Lindelof for the match, despite the Swede performing incredibly over the past month.

But it has been suggested that the Sweden international has been rested ahead of the upcoming European clash with PSG.

And, one out must mean one in…

Solskjaer has opted for the surprise inclusion of academy star Tahith Chong.

The 19-year-old still has work to do before featuring in the first-team on a regular basis, though he must take his opportunities and he could be given one today!

Lindelof has been United’s most improved player this term and there’s genuine hope for the Swede’s long-term future at the club, once we sign a commanding centre-back to partner him at the back.
