Jadon Sancho is in line to make his Premier League debut for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Leeds United in the season opener at Old Trafford on Saturday, though it could be from the bench.
The big money signing from Borussia Dortmund has made the long-awaited return to England after coming through the academy at Manchester City, and could get his first taste of Premier League football.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still has a dilemma in goal this season, but his choice will be easy for this match with Dean Henderson’s recent bout of COVID-19 meaning David De Gea will start.
Luke Shaw had a fantastic Euros for England and should start at left-back with Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right, and Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof in the middle while the Red Devils work to confirm a deal for Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.
Solskjaer will likely stick with the 4-2-3-1 formation that he used through most of last season, with Fred and Scott McTominay occupying the two holding roles.
Jesse Lingard contracted COVID-19 last week and will be unavailable in the attacking midfield positions, as will Marcus Rashford as he recovers from shoulder surgery.
As for Sancho, the new No.25 has only trained for a week and is unlikely to be ready to start, but can certainly be expected to play some part in the fixture.
That leaves United’s attacking midfield options quite self-explanatory. Bruno Fernandes is likely to start through the middle, with Paul Pogba continuing in the left-sided role that brought him success last season, while Mason Greenwood should start on the right.
Edinson Cavani is still on an extended break after plying for Uruguay in the Copa America over the summer, so that leaves Anthony Martial to start up front.
The Frenchman is reportedly in the shop window, but a positive performance could give him confidence and prove to the United hierarchy that he belongs in the side.
