Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have more or less a full strength squad ahead of their away trip to Leeds United.

Marcus Rashford remains a huge doubt for the game. The striker started in last week's 3-1 win against Burnley, but was forced to withdraw due to a foot issue and seemingly has failed to recover.

Anthony Martial is also absent for Man Utd, as his season looks to be over following picking up a knee injury whilst playing for France.

In defence, Eric Bailly is available after recovering from coronavirus. However, Solskjaer is likely to retain the same starting back four that played in the win against Burnley. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof.

Solskjaer is also likely to retain the Fred and Scott McTominay at the heart of the United midfield, with both occupying the double pivot positions.

In the attacking positions, expect Solskjaer to again keep the same players that featured in the win over Burnley.

Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba should all start.

They will look to supply Edinson Cavani, who is likely to replace Rashford as the lone striker.

Cavani has scored eight Premier League goals this season so far.
