Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ditched the three-man backline against Norwich City, while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial start in attack.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has switched back to the 4-2-3-1 formation for the Norwich City encounter after setting his team up in a three-man defensive system for the past couple of games.

As a result, Marcos Rojo gets axed from the starting XI, with Harry Maguire starting alongside the returning Victor Lindelof at the heart of the defence. Aaron Wan-Bissaka gets the nod at right-back, while captain Ashley Young comes into the team at left-back after sitting out the midweek clash against Partizan Belgrade. David de Gea returns in goal.

Scott McTominay continues to hold on to his spot in the double pivot in midfield for Manchester United. Fred returns to the side in place of academy product James Garner. Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard, both of whom started in the midweek, drop to the bench for the Norwich clash. Andreas Pereira returns to the team, slotting in as the No. 10 for Manchester United.

The Brazilian will be flanked by Daniel James on one side and Marcus Rashford on the other, with the duo returning after being benched for the Partizan game. Anthony Martial, who scored the only goal of the game against the Serbians, spearheads the attack for Manchester United.

Manchester United Confirmed XI: de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young; McTominay, Fred; James, Pereira, Rashford; Martial
