Man Utd fans love Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team selection for Everton – ‘Attack looks unreal’
Manchester United fans have hailed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team selection for today’s Premier League showdown with Everton. The Red Devils know that a win at Goodison Park will move them to within just a point of fourth-placed Chelsea.
Manchester United boss Solskjaer is aiming for a third win on the trot after recent victories over Watford and Club Brugge.
And, in order to achieve that, the Norwegian has gone strong for today’s Premier League showdown.
David De Gea returns to the side, with Sergio Romero playing in the 5-0 battering of Club Brugge on Thursday.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw make up the back four.
In the middle of the park Nemanja Matic, Fred and Scott McTominay all get the nod.
And, up top, Solskjaer has decided to play both Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood – along with Bruno Fernandes.

Fans are usually negative when it comes to team selections.
But the common consensus on Twitter is that, on this occasion, Solskjaer has got it bang on.
“That is some team,” said one supporter.
“WHAT A TEAM,” were the words of a second enthusiastic fan.
“That attack looks unreal,” said a third fan, clearly delighted with Solskjaer.
“Good team,” said another.

And a fifth said: “WE’RE RIPPING THEM APART WHAT A TEAM.”
While United fans are happy with Solskjaer’s side, the Norwegian himself can be forgiven for feeling a bit of trepidation.
The Red Devils lost 4-0 to Everton when the two teams met at Goodison Park last season.
And, speaking ahead of today’s game, Solskjaer admitted that defeat was his lowest point as United manager.
“That was the lowest I’ve been, I think you all know that and remember that. That was just a capitulation,” he said.
“We had absolutely nothing about us, even though all the goals were more or less counterattacks from set-plays or long throw-ins; everything you didn’t want to see you saw in that game.
“Everton at home are hard to play against, with the two up front, they put the players in the box, so we knew what we were up against. I’m 100 per cent sure we’ll put a better performance up.”
Solskjaer also expressed a belief that this current United side wouldn’t succumb to a similarly emphatic defeat.
“I knew probably before then [changes had to be made] but one or two had their last chance more or less, but we had to get to the summer first,” he said.
“I can, with hand on heart, 100 per cent say that these boys will never give in, never give up like that team did.
“These are the boys we want to build the next team around.”
