Here’s how Manchester United could line up when they take on West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.
Even this early in the season Manchester United will know that they cannot afford any slip ups, especially when it comes to the Premier League. As things stand, they have just managed 10 points from the first 7 games and sit at a measly 14th in the table. And it is safe to say that that needs to improve quick if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is to keep his job for much longer.
There have always been doubts about the Norwegian’s credentials for the job but he has managed to stay at the club for over a 100 games. But that run could come to an end very soon. A string of bad results and the manager could face the sack, like Jose Mourinho did before him after a poor start to the Premier League season in 2018/19.
Solskjaer certainly has not been helped by injuries or suspensions though as a number of players have spent time on the sidelines through the course of the season. And things won’t be any different when they take on West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

With a number of players still out, the manager has a limited group to pick his starting XI from. Here’s how we think the Red Devils will line up on Saturday:
David de Gea
There was a lot of controversy regarding the situation of Edinson Cavani heading into the game. With a number of Uruguay players and staff members testing positive over the last week, there were fears that the striker could miss the West Brom game. He also missed training on Thursday.
But Solskjaer’s pre-match comments did not indicate that he will be out tomorrow. As a result, we have decided to go for a new look trio of Cavani, Rashford and Martial.
