Loads of Man Utd fans unhappy at Solskjaer’s key omission from starting XI

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made three changes from the defeat to Crystal Palace ahead of today’s game away to Southampton.

The United boss was forced into two changes after Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial both sustained injury’s in last weekend’s game, with the pair ruled out until after the international break.

As expected, club captain Ashley Young makes a return to the starting eleven, replacing Luke Shaw at left-back.

Juan Mata and Andreas Pereira also start in place of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

It’s great to see another player get a chance in the attacking midfield role ahead of Lingard who has been underperforming for some time now, despite his endeavours in Solskjaer’s pressing game in defence.

While some Reds have welcomed Mata starting, many would have loved to see 17-year-old sensation Mason Greenwood get his chance to start his first competitive match of the season.

Many thought the youngster, recently called up to the England u21 squad for the European qualifiers, would be a natural replacement for Martial who has led the line so far for Solskjaer this season.

But Greenwood has to settle for a place on the bench on this occasion, and will look to make an impact when he comes on against a tiring Saints defence.

Greenwood is still extremely young and fans will have to be patient in waiting to see him starting regularly under Solskjaer.
