Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solskjær will have a selection headache when his side travel to Spain to take on Granada in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League clash. The manager will particularly be frustrated at how his side crashed out of the Emirates FA Cup after losing 3-1 against fellow Premier League side Leicester City in what was a horror performance from the United players.
Dutch international midfielder Donny Van de Beek was particularly singled out for major criticism after a personal disastrous performance that saw him lose possession a couple of times. The midfielder also misplaced a couope of passes and was a complete shadow of his true self.
Van de Beek’s performance at the weekend was highly talked about specifically because fans had been clamouring to see more appearances from him as they urged Solksjær to give him more playing time at the club. However, after his latest showing, he may find it even more difficult to find himself back into the starting team.
That being said, the manager will most likely start with star midfielder Bruno Fernandes who he will be expecting a masterclass of a performance from, and he will most likely be partnered by Paul Pogba who has reinstated himself into the starting team since his return from injury.
Edinson Cavani did not feature in the loss to Leicester City but may be a needed threat in the United attack if he is able to stay fit. His presence upfront will be a massive boost for Solksjær and he would somewhat be an upgrade to the misfiring Anthony Martial.
Here’s how we think they will lineup against Granada:
Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelöf, Shaw, Fernandes, Pogba, McTominay, Rashford, Cavani, Greenwood.
Rashford is currently not match-fit but could be ready and available before the fixture.
