The Manchester United team to face Tottenham Hotspur has been announced.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has kept mostly with the same team as he attempts to turn around a streak where the team have not been winning games; following draws against Sheffield United and Aston Villa, the pressure is building on him to improve results at Old Trafford.
Anthony Martial will miss the game after picking up a knock against Aston Villa and despite speculation that he may return, Paul Pogba is still missing from action.
It could be a crucial night for Solskjaer, who faces his predecessor — Jose Mourinho was recently appointed manager of Spurs and takes charge of his fourth match, having won his previous three.
In a twist, Mauricio Pochettino – recently dismissed in favour of Mourinho, and the favourite to succeed him at Old Trafford back December – will be watching on with interest as the unemployed Argentine seeks to return to football management. Should United lose, the speculation will surely be increased on Solskjaer’s future.
The team :
Wan-Bissaka Lindelof Maguire Young
James Lingard Rashford
