It comes as no surprise that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has went with his preferred back four – excluding Raphael Varane due to injury – and midfield, which consists of a Scott McTominay and Fred double pivot.
There is no room for Paul Pogba but at least the Frenchman was named on the bench – along with Edinson Cavani, Jadon Sancho and Jesse Lingard.
So there’s a lot of attacking threat from the bench, but what about the starting XI?
We will see Cristiano Ronaldo lead the line with Mason Greenwood on the right and Marcus Rashford on the left.
