Man Utd leaked XI vs PSG: Manchester United will reportedly field their strongest side in the game today.
Manchester United are set to take on Paris Saint Germain in the round-of-16 of the Champions League tonight.
The side is on an 11 game unbeaten run, winning ten of them as they face the French giants at Old Trafford. PSG are without the likes of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier for the clash.
As with every United game, MEN have once again leaked the Manchester United XI for the game, and it is probably the strongest possible side Solskjaer could’ve named for the clash.
Man Utd leaked XI vs PSG:
There are five changes to the side which played Fulham last weekend when United registered a comfortable 3-0 win.
While the central defence sees the return of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly, Rashford replaces Romelu Lukaku in the front. Ashley Young also returns in place of Diogo Dalot.
At Old Trafford for United vs PSG. Solskjaer in his programme notes: “I believe in these players. This group doesn’t need to be overawed by any opponent.”

Haven’t cared this much about United for a good 3 years. Will genuinely be disappointed if we don’t put a shift in today.

Jesse Lingard will take his place in the starting XI from Juan Mata, while the midfield three of Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic retain their place in the XI.
This is the XI we also predicted yesterday.
PSG’s XI has also been reportedly leaked, and Kylian Mbappe leads the forward line for the side. Draxler, Dani Alves and former Manchester United footballer Angel di Maria make the three in the midfield.
Here’s the full Man Utd XI vs PSG:
De Gea; Young, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Martial and Rashford.
📣Anthony Martial: “Perhaps it is easier to play this style of football and not the style of football he (Mourinho) asked.
“He (Solskjaer) is asking me to attack more — that is my job after all.”

De Gea: “Everyone feels good with him (Solskjaer), he wants us to enjoy ourselves on the pitch, that we are just ourselves and that is what we are in the process of doing with these victories. For us, it is magnificent.” #mufc

Don’t think there’s been many games post-Ferguson that Manchester United fans have been excited about as much as they are for PSG.
A genuine chance to turn up in a big game and beat a top team. Bring it on!

Manchester United are in tremendous form as they go into the Champions League clash against PSG. The side climbed to the fourth position last week with a 3-0 win over Fulham.
Paul Pogba has been in sublime form under Solskjaer, scoring 8 goals and bagging 5 assists since the Norweigan’s arrival at the club. The midfielder will be key to United’s performance in the game against PSG as well, and Thomas Tuchel identified him as one of the major threats in the game during the pre-match conference.
