It was gathered that only the pair of Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard will possibly miss the Group H fixture.

Be that as it may, over time it has become a little tricky to predict Solskjaer's line up for any particular tie given the Norwegian has been rotating his team set up often.

As such, it remains unclear if he could settle for the side that drew 0-0 with Chelsea at the weekend or revert back to the team that stunned Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League group opener.

However, Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes and David de Gea are key among the players sure to start against Leipzig.

Scott McTominay is the other player who could join the trio, having joined Solskjaer in the manager's presser in a massive hint the Scotsman is due to start.

New signing Alex Telles could also possibly be drafted in the starting line up, which would suggest a 3-5-2 formation.

As such Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Lindelof could take charge at the heart of defence, with Telles and Wan-Bissaka playing on either side of the flanks.
