The two United States resume their rivalry with the Pennines derby at the Theater of Dreams on Sunday, and the Red Devils’ poor home form this season will give Marcelo Bielsa’s visitors extra motivation.
Solskjaer’s starting lineup is largely chosen at full strength, but the manager has to make a few decisions – starting with the goal.
Dean Henderson had a rare start at Sheffield United in the middle of the week, but made an early mistake when he gave the Blades a goal. The England goalkeeper recovered and acquitted himself well afterwards, but David de Gea is likely to return as a No.1.
Edinson Cavani has missed the last three games with a groin problem, but will likely be at least an option after his practice on Friday.
Cavani could well be an option on the bench, which means Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are likely to start again in attack. Mason Greenwood was not at his best midweek, but was pulled out early – perhaps with an eye on this game.
Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba have sat in the midfield behind Bruno Fernandes to good effect, although Solskjaer may be tempted to bring in Fred or Scott McTominay – or maybe both – in a diamond formation.
Defenders Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe are expected to be available after what Solskjaer called “small injuries”, while Luke Shaw could replace Alex Telles after his return from injury.
