Ole on today’s line-up
It’s the same team as United deployed at Brighton in June and the manager explains why…
Three changes from last week with Aaron, Nemanja and Mason back. Thoughts today? They’re more ready now, they’ve had some minutes and played football last week and training. They weren’t ready to start last week, we felt, they’d missed too much pre-season. Then again both Nemanja and Aaron played well against Luton and Mason looked sharp. I know this is the team that played well last time we were here so we hope we can find some of that form again. That was a great performance, wasn’t it? All of it – without the ball, with the ball. Intent, play and run, go forward, create chances and defend like a proper team. Hopefully we can see some of that again. Do you feel more ready? Of course we played last week – two games – and more or less everyone has had minutes now. We’re further along with the fitness and sharpness so hopefully we can get it out on the pitch.
