Manchester United have named their team for tonight’s game with RB Leipzig.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made changes from the team which drew against Chelsea at Old Trafford at the weekend.
“There are a couple of doubts, as you normally have after a weekend game, a tight game as we had against Chelsea,” Solskjaer told Man Utd.com. “I think we’ve more or less the same squad.”
“It’s going to be a long season</q><q>course, the depth of our squad is better now. It’s hard to leave players out like the last game with Donny, Nemanja and Paul to start on the bench, as midfielders they are all experienced international footballers. It’s not easy but then, as I’ve said, we have so many games this season, they are all going to play a big, massive part in different periods of the season. I don’t think anyone is able to play all of them. There’s a balance when you put 11 together, it’s all important we all work well as a team – is it three or four or two? All sorts of discussions and who is on form and who maybe needs a break. All these little things.”
Solskjaer is coming up against a bright young coach and spoke highly of tonight’s opponents.
“I would use the same word: impressive,” he said. They’ve got a very refreshing, impressive coach as well. He’s bright, he changes, he’s very proactive and it’s hard to prepare against coaches like Julian [Nagelsmann], but we’ve just got to focus on ourselves. He will come up with something and we will come up with something. They’ve had some very impressive improvement over the years and you see already they’ve started really well in the Bundesliga.”
