How Man Utd could line up at Brighton with Eric Bailly replacing axed Victor Lindelof as Solskjaer rips apart defence

0

MANCHESTER UNITED head to Brighton on Saturday looking to get off the mark in the Premier League.

The Red Devils began the campaign in disappointing fashion last weekend as they slipped to a 3-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace.

They bounced back from that with a 3-0 win at Luton Town in the Carabao Cup in midweek, leaving boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with several decisions to make ahead of the Seagulls clash.

And perhaps his main one is whether to start with Mason Greenwood in attack.

The 18-year-old hit the headlines earlier this month when he was kicked out of the England squad alongside Manchester City’s Phil Foden for sneaking two girls into the team hotel, breaking strict Icelandic social distancing laws.

Greenwood began on the bench with Dan James favoured instead against the Eagles, and it was the same against Luton, but he did come on to grab a goal at Kenilworth Road.

Now Solskjaer could opt to unleash the hotshot from the off against Brighton as they look to get their league season up-and-running.

And Victor Lindelof looks to be facing the axe this week after United’s calamitous display last Saturday.

The centre-back was all over the place against Roy Hodgson’s men, and now with Eric Bailly fit again, Solskjaer is looking to form a regular partnership between him and Harry Maguire after they impressed at Luton.

New boy Donny van de Beek, who scored against Palace, has been forced to wait for his chance after starting both games on the bench.

And he is also expected to come in for Scott McTominay and line up alongside Paul Pogba in the middle.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka was also left on the bench a week ago, with Timothy Fosu-Mensah starting at right-back.

But he could also come back into the side for Saturday’s lunch time kick-off.
