Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explains dropping Marcus Rashford for Man City clash


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up on his decision to bench Marcus Rashford for today’s clash with Manchester City. The England international has scored three times since returning from injury. However, he’s not in his manager’s starting XI for this afternoon’s showdown at Old Trafford. 

Manchester United have gone strong for today’s match with City as they look to build on their emphatic 3-0 victory over Tottenham last time out.

David De Gea starts in goal, with the Spain international yet to miss a single Premier League match so far this term.

United have gone with five at the back, meaning their defence consists of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw.

In midfield, Fred and Scott McTominay partner up with Bruno Fernandes then deployed slightly further ahead.

And, with Rashford on the bench, the Red Devils have chosen to bring Mason Greenwood into the side in the absence of Edinson Cavani – who misses out through injury.

Now, Solskjaer has opened up on his team selection to MUTV – explaining his decisions in the process.
