Solskjaer arrives with his side to face Partizan Belgrade

Solskjaer names his team to face Partizan Belgrade

Thursday 07 November 2019 19:10

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made four changes to the Manchester United side that lost at Bournemouth last Saturday lunchtime.

Goalkeeper Sergio Romero comes back into the team for his third Europa League start of the season.

Juan Mata, Marcos Rojo and teenager Mason Greenwood make up the quartet who were not part of the starting XI at the Vitality Stadium in the 1-0 defeat.

The manager has also retained a similar look to his side that beat Partizan 1-0 last month in Belgrade, thanks to Anthony Martial’s penalty winner just before half-time.

Seven players who began the match in the Partizan Stadium start again tonight at Old Trafford in the Group L match.

Anthony Martial scored the penalty winner in Belgrade.

Marcus Rashford didn’t make the starting XI in Belgrade but came on for goalscorer Martial.

Since then, Rashford has scored three in three matches. Eighteen-year-old Greenwood has started two previous Europa League wins this season, against Astana and AZ Alkmaar, and scored the winner in the opening group game against Astana.
