Ole Gunnar Solskjaer names four Manchester United players who shouldn’t be left out


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer concedes that some of his Manchester United players are unhappy not to start for the current XI.United have fielded the same XI in their last three Premier League games – something that last happened in November 2006 – and have won all three with a three-goal margin.

Bournemouth’s 5-2 bombing marked United’s first flight of five goals to Old Trafford since Boxing Day in 2011 and they have kept 12 clean sheets in their 16 game unbeaten streak.

Although United may have an XI settled for the remainder of a season that could end on August 21, Solskjaer admits that it is a key to omitting certain players.

“We have declared the same XI in all three matches,” said Solskjaer. “One is because of its good shape and two, they create a beautiful unit and a threat of attack.

“But we have other players. It’s so hard for me to leave Scott [McTominay] and Fred the team and Brandon [Williams] and Dan James outside. We have players who deserve to play, but we will need everyone.

“We have so many games coming in a short amount of time, but [Greenwood, Rashford and Martial] have done fantastic. ”

Fred started 23 consecutive league games until Paul Pogba was called back for Sheffield United’s visit last month and McTominay was still on the team until he injured his knee against Newcastle the next day of Christmas.

Williams has fielded in the last two games against Manchester City and LAK Linz before the lockout and James has already started 26 times in his first Premier League season.p
