Marcus Rashford starts in place of Romelu Lukaku, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making three other changes for Manchester United’s game against Barcelona.

The surprise comes in defence, where Phil Jones seems to be starting as a right-back, with Diogo Dalot dropping to the bench. Victor Lindelof returns to the side to partner Chris Smalling at the heart of the Manchester United defence, while Ashley Young is the left-back.

Scott McTominay is an expected change, replacing Juan Mata to partner Paul Pogba and Fred in midfield, while David de Gea starts in goal for Manchester United. Nemanja Matic, meanwhile, is fit, but only to start on the bench.

Another player who is part of the matchday squad is Alexis Sanchez, who will hope to make an impact off the bench against his former club Barcelona. In attack, however, Marcus Rashford returns, replacing Romelu Lukaku.

Rashford will have Anthony Martial as his strike partner, with Jesse Lingard possibly playing at the tip of the midfield diamond in a free role. The other options on the bench, alongside Sanchez, are Mata and Andreas Pereira, with Sergio Romero the backup goalkeeper.
