However, talkSPORT reports they are likely to miss the services of Bruno Fernandes who picked a knock during the Atalanta win.

Fred is the other player expected to miss the meeting as he was not pictured with the rest of the squad at the team hotel.

Raphael Varane will also play no role in the fixture as he is currently nursing an injury picked during the international break.

Be that as it may, Solskjaer still has a number of players to select from for the encounter, with Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba set to feature.

David de Gea is expected to keep his place between the sticks after his recent heroics, with Maguire expected to take charge in the heart of defence alongside Victor Lindelof who will fill in for Varane.

Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are set to be deployed on either flank in a backline of four as Pogba and Scott McTominay take charge in the middle of the park.

Jesse Lingard could be given a nod in the absence of Fernandes, with Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford playing in the wings.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored the winner against Atalanta will undoubtedly lead the goal hunt, with Edinson Cavani likely to settle for a place on the bench.
