Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw come into the Manchester United starting eleven as a tough test await the Red Devils at Manchester City.

David De Gea is in goal for Manchester United. The back four consists of Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw, with Solskjaer not taking a gamble on Brandon Williams while Ashley Young seems to have been rested.

In midfield, we see the pairing of Scott McTominay and Fred. The two will be put to the test against a world-class Manchester City midfield. In front of the two is Jesse Lingard, who has earned his retention after impressing in the 2-1 win over Tottenham. Andreas Pereira has to make do with a place on the bench.

Daniel James and Marcus Rashford will look to upend the Manchester City defence with their pace. But, the surprise comes in the form of Anthony Martial, who has started despite Solskjaer stating in his pre-match conference that the Frenchman is only good enough to feature and is highly unlikely to start.

Manchester United Starting XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young, McTominay, Fred, James, Lingard, Rashford, Martial
