(Video) Solskjaer explains team selection versus Crystal Palace

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his starting eleven to face Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

The Reds start their 2020-21 Premier League season against the Eagles and Solskjaer has a few surprises in his team.

The biggest being Timothy Fosu-Mensah getting the rod at right-back ahead of the usually preferred Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Everyone in the squad is at a different level when it comes to fitness, as is the case whenever you start a new campaign, and Solskjaer says he took it into account when naming his team.

Some players only returned to training on Monday and have only had a week of training at the club, with some players being around Carrington for the past three weeks.

The manager adds that some players will need to wait a little longer until they are ready.
