Manchester United are currently preparing to take on Claudio Ranieri’s Watford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils, led by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, are under pressure to mark their return from the recent international break with a win.
Solskjaer appears to be on the brink of losing his job after guiding his side to just two wins in their last seven matches, in all competitions.
With United now set to play the Hornets at Vicarage Road, Solskjaer has named a starting 11 that he believes will be capable of getting the job done and in turn, relieve some pressure – at least for the time being anyway.

However, after confirming what players will be starting, fans have been quick to criticise Solskjaer for once again failing to field midfielder Donny van de Beek.
Donny Van De Beek is surely gonna leave now.

My thoughts on the Donny Van De Beek signing. What a waste of transfer money and wages. We paid all that money to put him on the bench for 2 seasons. Strange management and never been given a fair chance in the team. It must be more than footballing reasons. #MUFC

What do we have to do, to get Donny Van De Beek to start!!!!

Since his arrival from Ajax last summer, van de Beek has started in just four Premier League matches.
With the January transfer window just weeks from opening, failure to trust the Dutch midfielder will surely result in him departing the club at the earliest opportunity.
