Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Paul Pogba

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces his toughest test as Manchester United manager with Tottenham calling on Sunday.

The Red Devils have won five out of five under the Norwegian but this is the first time we play one of the top sides in England.

Solskjaer has some good news with Paul Pogba seemingly back for the tie, and the training trip to Dubai would have helped the team a lot.

Romelu Lukaku is back amongst the goals too as we beat Reading in the FA Cup. Solskjaer played a changed XI against the Championship side but some players could keep their place for the weekend’s clash.

Here is our predicted line-up for the Red Devils.

Predicted Manchester United XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

David de Gea (GK)

The Spaniard was rested in the FA Cup win over Reading and needs to have one of his best games to keep Spurs from scoring.

Ashley Young (RB)

It is a toss-up between Antonio Valencia and Young, but the Englishman just shades it to start on Sunday.

Phil Jones Manchester United

Phil Jones

Phil Jones (CB)

No surprises for United here as the Englishman keeps his place in the starting XI despite playing against Reading.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

The Swede is another player that is an automatic selection unless he picks up an injury before the game.

Luke Shaw (LB)

Shaw was another player rested in the win over Reading and has to be wary of the threat possessed by Son Heung-min and co.

Ander Herrera Manchester United

Ander Herrera (CM)

The Spaniard has to be at his best against the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks on Sunday.

Nemanja Matic (CM)

Matic is another player that needs to have a great game on Sunday, and he has to be the one breaking up the play for Tottenham.

Paul Pogba (CAM)

Pogba returning to the starting XI will be a huge boost for the team, and the Frenchman has been in great form under Solskjaer.

Anthony Martial (LW)

The French attacker needs to be at his best on Sunday, as we face one of the best teams in the Premier League.

Marcus Rashford of Manchester United

Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford (ST)

Lukaku could be deployed as a super-sub with Rashford doing a decent job up top. His pace will be key to unlocking the Tottenham defence on Sunday.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

The Englishman is another player that has to be great on Sunday, and he has done well for United under the new manager.
