Man Utd boss Solskjaer: New deal sharpens De Gea focus

Manchester United's striker Mason Greenwood celebrates after scoring in the Europa League Group L win over Astana at Old Trafford

Manchester United are set to kick of their 2019/20 Europa League campaign this coming Thursday. And, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to ring in the changes for his side's first European game of the season. Andreas Pereira could start on the right side of attack in the Man United lineup, as he did against Leicester City. "Sergio will play tomorrow, for sure".

"I know that everyone at the club shares this vision and will give everything to get Manchester United back to where it belongs", added Lindelof, who began his career at Swedish club Vasteras before moving to Benfica in 2011. It's a club that trusts young [players] and has given him the chance.

"Fred came on and did well at the weekend", Ole says.

Jesse Lingard could come back into contention, but Diogo Dalot is unlikely to be risked despite training this week. Another confirmed starter against Astana is Axel Tuanzebe. Axel is one who didn't make the starting XI so now it is a chance for them to get some minutes.

"It's a process and for these, we trust them".


As well as announcing Greenwood would be starting against Astana, Solskjaer hailed the young striker for his finishing, dubbing him as one of the best he's seen.

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has signed a new contract through to the summer of 2024, with the option of a further year. Ashley Young should complete the backline and don the armband for the hosts. We could maybe see him get a rest with Tahith Chong replacing him in the team. Juan Mata might be the senior figure in attack, guiding the youngsters in the final third.

However, having started as Harry Maguire's partner at the heart of the United defence in all five Premier League games so far this season, he is confident of getting United back to competing for trophies.

Alf-Inge Haaland was quizzed by TV2 on the United speculation and supposed interest from other English clubs after seeing his son net a treble against Genk, and said of the rumours: "It would be nice [if United and others showed interest]. It'll be his first start since Cardiff and he also needs game time".
