    2 weeks until this, international football can **** off.

    Assuming that Martial and Shaw are still out (anybody know when they're back?) this is the team that I would go for;

    DDG
    AWB Lindelof Maguire Williams
    McTominay Pogba
    Greenwood Mata James
    Rashford
    Rashford needs to get his head into the game, he's been rubbish so far this season. 2-1 United, Mata and Greenwood with the goals.

    Easy away win. Vardy to make Maguire look like Phil Jones.

    As long as Pogba is being used in the position he is in currently, United look dodgy as shit.

    Away win.

    Our midfield is dogshit whoever we put in there, the other option we have is Pogba no.10 with McTominay and Fred double pivot, but with Fred not even making the bench at the minute I don't see us doing that any time soon.

    If it's going to be dog shit either way, then why not push Pogba forward so he can actually influence the game(s)?

    Why isn't Fred getting a look?

    He goes missing just as much further up the pitch.

    Well he joined pre-season late due to copa-america and getting married, but you would have thought he was up to speed by now.

    Martial is due back for this game, Shaw's out for another week.

    Solskjaer said Fred was '5 weeks' behind the rest due to his summer exertions, so he should be due back too. Though I think we're okay for players who give the ball away constantly.


    It's Lindelof that worries me, not Maguire.

    Think we've got a decent chance here but way too many Leicester getting ahead of themselves after 4 games. ManUtd are still clear favourites here at home especially.

    That said, I reckon Vardy will smash 5 past them.

    There’s only 1 team in Manchester.

    And that’s us!

    1-4!

    I think the team will be what's below, assuming Martial is fit. Mata might not start, but I would be surprised if Ole starts one of young lads in his place, and I think he'll want to give Fred some game time in Europa league before risking him, possibly to allow Pogba to play further up. Maybe Matic will start, but other than that I think it'll be a similar side, as we haven't got that many options in the areas we need them.

    DDG
    AWB Lindelof Maguire Young
    McTominay Pogba
    James Mata Rashford
    Martial

    Think it’ll be a choice between Hamza and Barnes to start, I hope he picks Barnes and goes for it

    no shaw, no martial, no pogba, and potentially no awb or lingard. i really hope ole doesn't just use subs in the 4231 and hope for the best with the same tactics. i'd tell mctominay to stick to maddison like glue and i'd keep our center backs 10 yards further back than they've been playing. it really is disgraceful that the board didn't bring in another midfielder this summer, as situations like this one expose such neglect. i'd be surprised if we came away with three points here. i do think leicester will win, though. 2-1.
