Pogba out – Solskjaer’s probable 4-2-3-1 XI for Man Utd vs AC Milan

Manchester United are preparing for their last pre-season game before the start of the season and all appears to be going well for the club so far. Despite a tricky transfer window, the club have been able to churn out good results so far in pre-season.

Thus far the Red Devils have scored 10 goals conceding just once and have won all five pre-season matches so far. Solskjaer is likely to field the squad most likely to play the opener against Chelsea at Old Trafford next week.

Spanish stopper David De Gea is expected to man the stick, De Gea remains one of the best goalkeepers in the world. New signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka should begin at right-back after his big-money move from Crystal Palace.

Luke Shaw saw remarkable progress in his game, winning the club Player of the Year and should start at left-back. The centre back position is less of a conundrum with the impending transfer of Harry Maguire but Chris Smalling is likely to partner Victor Lindelof in the heart of the defence.

Solskjaer is likely to start the midfield pairing that will start against Chelsea with Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic holding both spots, as Paul Pogba failed to turn up for the flight for Wales. Juan Mata has been used a lot this summer and should operate in the number 10 role behind the attack.

Former Swansea ace Daniel James has impressed in recent matches and could prove to be the solution to the problem right role for the club. French ace Anthony Martial is expected to play a key role and should start Saturday with Marcus Rashford holding the line up front.
