''Out Of Two Competitions In A Week'' - Manchester United Fans Fire Into Shock Starter Ahead Of FA Cup Clash With Chelsea

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made four changes to the Manchester United side that lost to PSG
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made four changes to the Manchester United side that lost to PSG

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has elected to tinker with his Manchester United squad for their FA Cup fifth round clash with Chelsea on Monday evening, but the Red Devils fans are not impressed with the team selection and Romelu Lukaku has come in for significant criticism ahead of the 7:30pm kick-off.

Marcus Rashford has been the chosen starter up front for United since Solskjaer's arrival and the Belgian star has had to sit and watch from the bench for most games under Solskjaer's reign, but the former United striker has elected to play both Lukaku and Rashford together up front, as he looks to secure a quarter-final spot.

Lukaku is among four changes from the side that lost to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week, but the fans are worried that Lukaku's inclusion will mean Rashford will take more of a wide role in the United line-up and many fans believe that could scupper United's chances of progressing.

Speaking ahead of the match, United fans took to social media to question Solskjaer's decision to unleash Lukaku from the start with many not looking forward to the Belgian international starting at Stamford Bridge.

Here's a selection of Tweets from Manchester United fans:

Lukaku and Mata starting ?....... Out of two competitions in a week Can’t wait for Sunday [UnitedVX]
