Manchester United will be looking to re-stake their title claims when they welcome Southampton to Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
The Red Devils have tasted defeat against Sheffield United and succumbed to a frustrating goalless draw against Arsenal in their last two fixtures, leaving them three points behind neighbours City – who also have a game in hand – at the top of the table.
The Frenchman has gone eight appearances in all competitions without a goal since netting against Aston Villa on the opening day, registering just two goals and three assists all season so far.
The back four is set to remain the same but for the possible inclusion of Eric Bailly in Victor Lindelof’s stead, with Luke Shaw continuing to be a key contributor from left-back.
That would allow Mason Greenwood to come in on the right hand side to complete the front four alongside Fernandes, Martial and Rashford, with the youngster looking to add to his solitary Premier League goal.
Solskjaer will face a Saints outfit still missing influential defender Jannik Vestergaard, and an attacking lineup will look to expose the Dane’s absence for the visitors.
United came from two goals down to beat Southampton 3-2 last time out and will be hoping to not have to do the same again in a game they ought to win to remain in the title conversation.
