Man United predicted XI: Solskjaer should bring in Pereira for Crystal Palace clash

Manchester United left Molineux on Monday night disappointed, as Paul Pogba’s missed penalty prevented the Red Devils from maintaining their 100% record, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be confident his side can restore the form they showed on the opening day.

Ultimately, it has been a positive start for Solskjaer who has already managed to get the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial firing, whilst his defence has kept things tight, conceding just one goal from their opening two Premier League fixtures.

Indeed, after a rather frustrating night last time out, how will the Norwegian set up his side this Saturday?

Aaron Wan-Bissaka could be set to face his old side for the first time, and the former Crystal Palace man has made a strong start this season, leading the way for tackles (as per WhoScored) at Old Trafford. Elsewhere in defence, the world’s most expensive defender, Harry Maguire, will surely continue to grow his partnership with Victor Lindelof, one praised by the Telegraph’s James Ducker.

In midfield, despite his penalty miss, Paul Pogba has been pulling the strings for United, producing two assists in his opening two Premier League appearances, so he should keep his place alongside Scott McTominay.

Perhaps the only change from Solskjaer will come in the no.10 spot, with Jesse Lingard only receiving a 5/10 (as per Manchester Evening News) for his performance against Wolves last time out. As a result, Andreas Pereira could come in to change things up after producing an assist on the opening day of the season.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial practically pick themselves these days because of their goals and the departure of Romelu Lukaku, whilst Gary Neville has stated that Daniel James will strike fear into the opposition after his opening couple of performances, so Solskjaer should opt to go with the Welshman and his fear factor.
