Loads of Man Utd fans react to Solskjaer’s surprise full-back selection

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his starting eleven to face Unai Emery’s Arsenal at Old Trafford tonight.

Young defender Axel Tuanzebe is one of the more surprising selections, replacing Aaron Wan-Bissaka who is ruled out with a mystery injury.

Tuanzebe’s preferred role is in central defence, but he has had to be called upon at right-back this evening in Wan-Bissaka’s absence.

The 21-year-old captained the Reds in midweek against League One Rochdale in the Carabao Cup, and was one of the standout performers as Solskjaer’s side scraped through on penalties.

It will be interesting to see how he gets on in an unfamiliar position tonight, though he has played at full-back for the Reds before so it is not completely new territory.

Another surprise from Solskjaer’s team is that Mason Greenwood has not been selected, despite being United’s most dangerous attacker in recent weeks.

Marcus Rashford has recovered from a knock picked up against West Ham and retains his place up front.
