Man Utd leaked XI vs Tottenham: Manchester United will be playing Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium later tonight.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will aim to continue the winning run under his charge at Manchester United as he takes on Tottenham at Wembley Stadium.
The side is yet to drop points under the Norwegian manager in the league, and advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win over Reading.
Solskjaer took the Manchester United squad to Dubai where the team took part in warm-weather training sessions earlier this week, as they prepared for the game against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
And the XI for the game has now been leaked by English media outlet Manchester Evening News.

Paul Pogba has also returned to the midfield after a knock against Newcastle ruled him out for the FA Cup game.
After days of speculations over his participation in the game at Wembley Stadium, Solskjaer confirmed in the pre-match conference that the French midfieder is fit for the game.
However, the biggest change was seen in the offence, where Anthony Martial is benched for Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian forward started against Reading and scored the second goal of the game, but emerged as a ‘super sub’ in both the league games for Solskjaer.
Here’s the leaked XI:
De Gea, Young, Jones, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic, Ander Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Lukaku, Rashford
A win will take Manchester United level on points with the fifth-placed Arsenal, who faced a stunning defeat against West Ham last night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær on Harry Kane “He’s not bad, is he? He is a fantastic goalscorer, one of the best in the world. From the outside it looks like he never misses chances really. We have to make sure he doesn’t get any against us.” #MUFC pic.twitter.com/Ef5Lulww5b
