Confirmed Man United XI vs Leeds: Daniel James and Mason Greenwood start

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has included Daniel James in his Manchester United starting lineup against Leeds at Elland Road.

United return to Premier League action against Marcelo Bielsa’s side after a tumultuous week off the pitch that included the failed European Super League proposal, Ed Woodward’s resignation and Glazers out protests.

The Reds thrashed their old rivals 6-2 in arguably their best showing of the season in December and will be hoping for a similar outcome in West Yorkshire as they aim to consolidate second place.

James, who was a surprise inclusion for the drubbing four months ago, gets another start against the side who he came so close to signing for before his Old Trafford switch.

The Welshman starts in a rapid front three alongside Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, with Paul Pogba among the substitutes.

Scott McTominay had perhaps the best individual performance from any United player this season in the reverse fixture and lines up alongside Fred in the midfield axis.

Solskjaer has opted for his favourite back four and a strong bench includes Pogba, Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek.

Man Utd XI vs Leeds: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Rashford, James, Greenwood.
