Marcus Rashford and Fred have both been ruled out of this game after suffering injuries against Atalanta, while Bruno Fernandes was reportedly limping in training following the Champions League match and is also a doubt.
However, Solskjaer is confident about Rashford’s fitness, and Anthony Martial and Amad Diallo could also return to bolster the hosts’ attacking options. Raphael Varane, on the other hand, is ruled out.
If Fred is ruled out, Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba might form the midfield duo, though the latter will compete with Jadon Sancho for a spot on the left if Rashford does not make the squad.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are hoping to have Curtis Jones back in time to face Manchester United, although Thiago Alcantara and Harvey Elliott are expected to miss out for the time being.
Fabinho was unexpectedly chosen on the bench in midweek, but he will undoubtedly replace either James Milner or Naby Keita in the starting XI here, with Jones vying with one of the pair for the other engine room berth beside Jordan Henderson.
Due to an injury scare during the international break, Diogo Jota has lost his starting spot to Firmino, who has scored his past 10 Premier League goals on the road.
Manchester United XI:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane
