Ole Gunnar Solskjaer "Delighted" With Scott McTominay Contract Extension

Thursday, 25 Jun, 2020

The Red Devils face Sheffield United at Old Trafford today for the first time in the Premier League since winning the Manchester derby on March 8.

Despite the Red Devils leading 2-0 at the break, the scoreline flattered Sheffield United.

They had marked their opening match since the coronavirus lockdown with a 1-1 draw away to Spurs in the Premier League last Friday but de Gea was heavily criticised by former United skipper Roy Keane for letting Steven Bergwijn's shot slip in off his hands. Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Other Players to Watch Out.

Although Solskjaer is "happy" with how his side are progressing, he has conceded that further investment in top talent may be necessary for United to close the gap on English football's current pace-setters Liverpool and Manchester City.

Solskjaer has no doubt Henderson has the potential to claim a first-team spot at Old Trafford in future but has no reason to doubt De Gea for now.

Fernandes did start against Tottenham Hotspur alongside Fred and Scott McTominay in the midfield but fans have called for Pogba to start for either McTominay or Fred.

"Dean has had a fantastic couple of years at Sheffield United", Solskjaer said.

The Scotland worldwide wrapped up that 2-0 win and is set to be involved when they step out on home turf in front of empty stands for the first time.

Defenders: Victor Lindelof limped off against Tottenham and was replaced by Eric Bailey.

The 27-year-old midfielder should replace Brazilian global Fred in the center of the park to make his first league start since September last year.

DF Luke Shaw, 7 - Was told to "switch on" by Harry Maguire midway through the first half after almost getting caught in possession.

MF Paul Pogba, 7 - Making his first start since September, he delivered one lovely dinked pass over the top for Rashford and played his part in Martial's third. Rashford did well to miss the target having been played in by Martial following a flowing counter-attack before the England global again fluffed his lines after some delightful build-up play that included a Fernandes back-heel and chipped Pogba through-ball. If Pogba does start, Fred has to sit out.

Forwards: Daniel James is set to keep his place. He's played with and against men, played in the Championship and plays now behind a team that play exciting football. Marcus Rashford will be on the left while Anthony Martial will play as the central striker.
