Manchester United could bring Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Donny Van de Beek into their side to face RB Leipzig.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come in for criticism for his unwillingness to start Van de Beek, who has been on the bench for United’s five Premier League games this season so far.
But the United boss has insisted Van de Beek has an important role to play and could introduce the Dutchman as part of widespread changes for the Champions League encounter.
Martial has been suspended for the past two Premier League games, so is almost certain to feature, while Greenwood, Nemanja Matic, Alex Telles and Axel Tuanzebe could all come back into the starting 11.
“More or less the same squad,” Solskjaer said when asked about the latest team news in his pre-match press conference. “There are a couple of doubts and knocks as you normally [have] after a tight weekend game as we had against Chelsea, but I think we will more or less have the same squad.”
The United boss defended his policy of rotation, but cited the need for his players to get the job done in their Champions League group after beginning with a superb 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain. Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir are the other group opponents.

“We look at every single game as a chance to get three points and in the group stage we have four teams and you would think that 10 points would get you through,” Solskjaer added. “So to get to 10 points as quickly as we can is our aim and our focus now is on getting three points tomorrow night.
“I think this season is a very special one. We’re in a special situation, circumstances, we play a game every three days, sometimes it’s two days in between, sometimes you are lucky and you have three days in between but you are going to do it relentlessly until the end of the season.”
Predicted United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Van de Beek; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.
