Loads of Man Utd fans react as Solskjaer names exciting front four vs PSG

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named a Manchester United XI full of attacking quality for tonight’s Champions League fixture against Paris Saint-Germain. 

United secure qualification for the knockout stages if they avoid defeat against Thomas Tuchel’s French champions at Old Trafford.

And many expected Solskjaer to revert back to his five-at-the-back system that has been so effective in nullifying the opposition threat in back-to-back victories at the Parc de Princes.

But the Norwegian has surprised some by naming an adventurous line-up that includes Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani.

Martial has recovered from illness to return the starting team, and will likely cut in from the left-flank supporting Sunday’s match-winner Cavani and Rashford in a potent front three.

Indispensable Fernandes will be protected by a double midfield pivot of Scott McTominay and Fred.

Meanwhile, there is continuity again in defence with Solskjaer selecting same back four and goalkeeper that won at Southampton.

Donny van de Beek is unfortunate not to retain his place but he makes up a strong bench alongside the likes of Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood.
