Solskjaer Hints On Players He’ll Drop Ahead Of Burnley Fixture

Solskjaer Ahead Of Burnley Fixture

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to want to make changes to his starting XI for the Premier League clash against Burnley at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils are looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointing defeat at Anfield on Sunday and Solskjaer could make changes to the side that lost 2-0 to Jurgen Klopp's side.

The Norwegian was asked about the test Burnley pose and he is hoping for a similar performance to the one his team produced at Turf Moor just under a month ago.

“We played well against Burnley up there, we defended really well. It’s a very hard place to go to and very pleased with that win. Good clean sheet, we got the performance we wanted only two days after Newcastle,” he told MUTV.

“We made some changes for that one, we still might make some changes for this one too. It’s always beneficial when you’ve played them.

‘’Look back at it, we’ll see what we can do better, what went well – but they’ll do the same! We’re looking forward to it.

‘’We’re at home, we’ve done well at home lately and let’s keep that run going.”

Marcus Rashford will miss the game with a double back fracture while Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe are still ruled out.

Victor Lindelof could also be a doubt after he was sent home from training on Tuesday as a precaution due to illness.

But the United boss does have Eric Bailly to call upon again after the Ivory Coast international recovered from injury.

“Of course. We are stretched and some of the players have played a lot, Solskjaer said.

They’re improving for it, they’ll reap the benefit because they get stronger physically, mentally more robust but of course, it’s great having Eric and Diogo and Luke back in so we’ve got more choices.

“It’s a blow Marcus being out, but that’s football. That’s part and parcel of it.

”He’s been fantastic all season for us and unfortunately, now we’ve got to do without him.”
