LEAKED! Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Chases Manchester United History At Tottenham As Possible Line-Up Is Revealed
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the chance to become the first ever manager in Manchester United’s long and illustrious history to steam of the traps with six successive victories.
The popular interim boss has seen off Cardiff, Huddersfield, AFC Bournemouth, Newcastle, and Reading since replacing Jose Mourinho, and now he’s bidding to extend his winning run away to Tottenham and their boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is in the running for the permanent Man Utd position, alongside the Norwegian and surprise contender Gareth Southgate.
Manchester Evening News have leaked Solskjaer’s potential line-up ahead of this afternoon’s clash at Spurs, with Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial, and Marcus Rashford rumoured to be running the show in attack, meaning there’s no place for Romelu Lukaku in the first-11, while Alexis Sanchez is unlikely to feature at all.
The paper reports that the midfield will consist of Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, and Ander Herrera, ahead of a backline of Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, and Luke Shaw. There are no surprises about who will be in between the sticks: David de Gea.
United know that if they can make it six wins on the spin they will draw level with Arsenal on 41 points, and thus to within six points of the top-four.
However, the Red Devils have lost each of their last three league visits to Spurs, whose star man Harry Kane is bidding to find the back of the net in his seventh straight league game for the first time ever.
Solskjaer will be hoping that another Englishman, in Rashford, continues his fine form with the forward involved in nine goals in his last eight top-flight fixtures, scoring four goals times in the process.
