Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could make four changes for his side’s Premier League clash with Sheffield United on Wednesday night. The Red Devils go into the game looking to build on their 3-2 victory over Liverpool over the weekend. So Express Sport will now bring you the latest team news and expected starting XI for the showdown at Old Trafford.

Goalkeeper: De Gea

Dean Henderson started for United against Liverpool and fared well.

But the Red Devils should restore David De Gea for the match against Sheffield United, with the Spain international sitting out the last game.

United have rotated their goalkeepers this term.

But De Gea is their undisputed No 1 so he’s expected to come in for the contest.

He conceded against Fulham last time out and will be looking to keep more clean sheets as United hunt a first Premier League title since 2013.

Midfield: Fred, McTominay, Fernandes

United may opt to rotate their midfield for Wednesday’s match.

That means Bruno Fernandes is virtually guaranteed to come in for Donny van de Beek, who disappointed in the victory over Liverpool.

And Fred may come in for Mason Greenwood.

That would enable Paul Pogba to keep his place in the side, albeit on the wing rather than in the middle of the park.

So we’re expecting a midfield trident of Fred, Scott McTominay and Fernandes to start.

Attack: Rashford, Cavani, Pogba

As mentioned above, Pogba should start.

He’s been a rejuvenated figure for United of late, starring as they’ve climbed their way to the top of the table.

Marcus Rashford may get the nod, too.

He was forced out of the match against Liverpool through injury but Solskjaer appeared relaxed on his condition when speaking on Friday.

And Edinson Cavani will likely keep his place down the middle, with the Uruguay international really starting to come good.

Managers give team news

Solskjaer said Rashford was available for the match against Sheffield United, saying: “Marcus is available, yeah.

“He trained this morning. I think he tweaked his knee a little bit but should be fine.

“We are looking strong, which is a good place to be in.”

Meanwhile, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder admitted his side were unsure over the fitness of forwards Oli McBurnie and Lys Mousset.

“We’re waiting on Mousset,” confirmed Wilder.

“Potentially, there are nine players from our group unavailable for Wednesday. Fingers crossed, there might be one or two of those boys back for the weekend [at Manchester City].”
