Four Manchester United Star Players Unlikely to (Start/Feature) Against Real Sociedad

Manchester United have been on a rollercoaster ride in terms of form after beating Southampton 9-0 on February 2nd 2021.

The Manchester club have since then saw themselves get only one win in the past three games with the rest being draws.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows his side desperately need a win to progress to the next round in the Europa League and same time he wouldn’t want to risk his important players getting Injured due to his side still having some level of hopes in the premier league, even though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer publicly ridiculed his side chances to win the league, being top four in still a target for the Norwegian.

Let’s take a look at the Predicted lineup for the Round of 32 Match against Real Sociedad today before we talk about the exact players that Ole might NOT START in today game .

Want to rate the best Goalie right now in the epl? Off-course David De Gea name would definitely come up to your lips. The Spanish Goalkeeper has been on what one can comfortably call the form of his life and was instrumental to Manchester United being top of the league early this season.

It would definitely be unfair to leave such a wonderful Goalkeeper off the starting line up after he took so long to rediscover his form.


Who wouldn’t want the quartet of Alex Telles, Bailey, Maguire and Aaron Wan Bissaka Marshal the Defense?

You definitely know by now that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be the last person to take such risk.

We can expect the combination of Luke Shaw, Tuanzebe, lindelof and Williams to be on the Defense this night for Manchester United against Real Sociedad.


A fantasy pair of Pogba, Van beek and Bruno Fernandes is what most fans are still waiting on Solskjaer to field, but you wouldn’t expect ole to do in a match like this or do you?

Instead we should expect something like: Fred, Scott tomminay and Mata to boss the Midfield and with changes like van de Beek or maybe Bruno Fernandes coming through in the second half of the game only if the game gets tough or one of Fred, Scott or Mata gets worn out.


James, Shola the new kid or maybe amad diallo would be the options in the wings with cavani, Martial getting a rest in this game.

Marcus Rashford has a high possibility of starting the match as the lone striker in what we might call a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Manchester United Star Players Unlikely to Start the game 😋

You wouldn’t expect Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to throw in Bruno Fernandes Inna game like this after him not getting any noticable rest since the start of the game, although the Portuguese hasn’t complained of him not getting any rest and instead when asked he has simply replied he wished to play every minute available to him.

Anthony Martial is another star player who would or might not start the match as he has been on a terrible run of form since this season started and also his work rate has not been that good.

Maguire and Alex Telles might not start this game as they both need to rest for their next match against New Castle in the epl.
