There was little in the way of injury updates in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s latest press conference as journalists opted to initiate a discussion about his future after Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat to Everton on Sunday afternoon.

For that reason, we can only speculate as to who will be in the first team for the Red Devils’ potentially title-deciding clash with Manchester City.

Luke Shaw should go straight back into the side after returning from suspension, with Solskjaer offering glowing praise about the left-back.

Phil Jones (knock) and Eric Bailly (head injury) remain doubts in defence, so Victor Lindelöf looks likely to move across to centre-back alongside Chris Smalling – which would open a slot for Ashley Young to return at right-back.

Ander Herrera (muscle) remains a doubt in midfield but did return to training last week, but Solskjaer still has options to react to the defeat Everton.

Scott McTominay has been preferred in big games, both by United’s current and former boss, so could come in for Fred, just as he did at Goodison Park.

Anthony Martial came in for some criticism on Sunday, and could be replaced by Jesse Lingard in attack.
