Whereas using two strikers increases the chances of Edinson Cavani making his first Premier League start, it is likely Solskjaer could prefer the pairing of Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

Bruno Fernandes is sure to make a return to the starting line up, playing in the most advanced role ahead of Donny van de Beek and Juan Mata.
