Marcus Rashford is fit to start, but Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani are on the bench as Manchester United prepare to take on Leeds United at Elland Road.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made just one change to the side that started in the Premier League game against Burnley last weekend as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Leeds United at Elland Road.
There are no shuffles in goal, where Dean Henderson continues to be preferred to David de Gea. The defensive line remains unchanged as well, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw retaining their places as the two full-backs while Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof pair up at the heart of the Manchester United backline again.

Up ahead in midfield, Solskjaer has chosen to not tinker with the double pivot of Scott McTominay and Fred, with Donny van de Beek and Nemanja Matic the backup option. The surprise decision, though, is the fact that Paul Pogba has been placed on the bench.
The Frenchman’s place in the side has been taken by Daniel James, who could be starting on the right flank, with Marcus Rashford fit to start on the left wing. Bruno Fernandes reprises the no. 10 role again while Mason Greenwood is set to lead the line for Manchester United against Leeds, with Cavani once again benched.
Manchester United Starting Lineup: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, James, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford, Greenwood
