Should both Martial and Lingard make the matchday squad, Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata who started against Chelsea will likely have to only make the substitutes bench.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could stick with the midfield trio of Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba all who have formed a strong partnership.

Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Ashley Young will be expected to lead the backline.
