Loads of Man Utd fans react as Pogba, Henderson and Van de Beek start vs West Ham

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sprung plenty of surprises in his Manchester United line-up to face West Ham at the London Stadium. 

Dean Henderson makes his first Premier League start for United in place of David de Gea who has been omitted from the squad entirely.

Solskjaer has opted for the same back four that started against Southampton and Paris Saint-Germain, with Alex Telles aiming to establish himself as United’s first-choice left-back.

Meanwhile, there’s changes in midfield as Paul Pogba returns to the starting XI in what appears to be a double midfield pivot with Scott McTominay.

The indispensable Bruno Fernandes drops to the bench with Donny van de Beek getting his chance in an attacking midfield role.

Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood support Edinson Cavani in a dangerous front three with Marcus Rashford joining Fernandes on the bench.

Solskjaer clearly has one eye on Tuesday’s deciding Champions League fixture away to RB Leipzig with his line-up against the Hammers.

But there is more than enough attacking quality for the Reds to secure their ninth consecutive Premier League away win.

Victory for the Reds would move them into the top four for the first time this season, albeit temporarily with Wolves, Southampton and Leicester City still to play this weekend.
