Manchester United return to action on Saturday, when they’ll visit Leicester City for a Premier League fixture, beginning a key stretch that will see the level of competition rise significantly. With a ton of much bigger fixtures, both domestically and in Europe, coming up fast and furious, we have to quote Atlanta hip-hop duo Outkast:
“from here on out, it only gets rougher.” Let’s see how manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, currently doing his job without the support and approval of many, if not most, of the fans, handles this all.
Solskjaer doesn’t appear to be on the hot seat, despite all the fan calls to remove him. Sir Alex Ferguson himself disagreed with the decision to drop Cristiano Ronaldo.
He’ll likely be without half of his “McFred” partnership in the defensive midfield for this one, as the Brazilian has international duty, against Edinson Cavani and Uruguay no less, so expect El Matador to miss this one too.
And with the first choice central defense pairing also out injured, the rest of the first team prediction, well it just picks itself essentially.
Here we decided to give the struggling, sputtering Jadon Sancho a rest, electing to go with the returning Marcus Rashford instead.
