Ole names team for Kristiansund friendly
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made six changes to the starting XI that beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in Shanghai last Thursday, as the Reds face Kristiansund in his native Norway.
Nemanja Matic starts alongside Scott McTominay, with Andreas Pereira, Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood moving to the bench.
A 4-2-3-1 formation looks set to feature Daniel James, who makes his fifth start of Tour 2019, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial - scorer of United’s opener against Tottenham - support lone striker, Marcus Rashford, although the latter two could easily trade positions.
Despite talk of Paul Pogba nursing a back problem, Ole has told MUTV the midfielder is
“fine” and will come off the bench in the second half.
United: De Gea (c); Wan-Bissaka, Jones, Lindelof, Shaw; Matic, McTominay; James, Lingard, Martial; Rashford.
Subs: Romero, Dalot, Rojo, Smalling, Tuanzebe, Young, Fred, Gomes, Mata, A.Pereira, Pogba, Chong, Greenwood.
