Loads of Man Utd fans react as Eric Bailly and Dan James start against Leicester City

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named Eric Bailly and Daniel James in his Manchester United starting lineup to face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. 

United can leapfrog Brendan Rodgers’ men with another away victory, and Solskjaer has named a similar team to the one that demolished Leeds at Old Trafford last weekend.

David de Gea returns in goal after being rested in the Carabao Cup win at Everton.

He is protected by a back four of Bailly, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

Bailly could start at right-back this afternoon in place of the injured Aaron Wan-Bissaka with Axel Tuanzebe unlucky to retain his spot.

The midfield axis of Fred and Scott McTominay that was so effective against Leeds returns alongside the indispensable Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes is supporting a front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and James.

James took his chance against Leeds but many would still have expected him to start amongst the substitutes.

But with no obvious right-back in the team, Solskjaer could spring a surprise with his shape and James could start at right wing-back with Bailly making up a back three with Lindelof and Maguire.
