Loads of Man United fans react as Solskjaer gives youngster rare chance vs Granada

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has included Axel Tuanzebe in his Manchester United starting lineup to face Granada in the Europa League quarter-final second leg at Old Trafford.

United secured a healthy two-goal advantage last week, but Solskjaer has taken no risks in his team to face the eighth best team in La Liga.

Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay are all suspended for tonight’s decisive tie after bookings in the first-leg and the United boss has had the luxury of replacing the trio with like-for-like players.

Tuanzebe has made just five starts in all competitions and last featured for the Reds in the previous round against Real Sociedad.

But he comes in for the indispensable Maguire in the United captain’s absence alongside Victor Lindelof this evening.

Paul Pogba captains a strong United side this evening and looks likely to resume his role on the left of a front three where he was so effective against Tottenham.

Alex Telles comes in for Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic joins Fred in the midfield axis and Mason Greenwood lines up on the right side of attack.

United fans on social media have been pleased with the rare inclusion of academy graduate Tuanzebe at Old Trafford.

MUFC XI vs Granada: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Telles; Fred, Matic, Fernandes, Pogba; Greenwood, Cavani.
