Antonio Valencia is finally back playing, and the timing couldn't have been better. The manager may want to get the skipper some more game time under his belt, so he’s likely to start.

The central defence, however, should be a concern for the Norwegian manager, especially after the dismissal of Eric Bailly against Bournemouth [which means he will also miss this fixture].

Now, that means Manchester United currently have only two senior central defenders [Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones] available.

Though the likes of Matteo Darmian can fill that position, it is likely that Solskjaer will continue with Jones and Lindelof as his centre-back pairing.

Like David De Gea, Luke Shaw, the current first choice left back, may also get some time off. That will mean either Ashley Young or Darmian may be selected to start this game as the left back. Both the players have great experience and wouldn't shy away if called upon.
