Manchester United returned to winning ways under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and we did it in some style. The Red Devils were brilliant against Cardiff City, notching up five goals and most would expect more of the same when we face Huddersfield at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.

The new manager decided to bring Paul Pogba back into the starting XI and it worked a treat, with the Frenchman doing really well.

We need to get some wins under our belt as we chase down the top four and with several games coming up in a short span of time, Solskjaer might change things up with the team too.

After Huddersfield, we face Bournemouth and Newcastle and keeping that in mind, here is my predicted line-up for Boxing Day.

Predicted Manchester United XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

David de Gea (GK)

De Gea hasn’t had the greatest of seasons at United and maybe, his form will turn around with a new manager at the club.

Manchester United Luke Shaw

Luke Shaw (LB)

Shaw did a pretty good job in our win over Cardiff and should keep his place in the team for Wednesday’s clash.

Phil Jones (CB)

Chris Smalling is still out with an injury and we should see Jones continue playing alongside Victor Lindelof.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

The Swede returning to the side is a huge boost and should start for us against a tenacious Huddersfield side.

Ashley Young (RB)

Young is another player that Solskjaer might not drop as the Englishman has been consistent for United this season.

Paul Pogba Manchester United

Paul Pogba (CM)

New manager, new Pogba. The Frenchman might not have been at his best but he did some good things on the pitch and should look to build on it on Wednesday.

Nemanja Matic (CM)

Matic had a decent game last time around and should keep his place in the starting XI against Huddersfield.

Marouane Fellaini (CM)

The Belgian could start for us and we could do well with his physicality and aerial ability against Huddersfield.

Anthony Martial (LW)

Martial scored a fantastic goal in our previous game and the Frenchman should start for United on Wednesday.

Marcus Rashford of Manchester United

Marcus Rashford (ST)

Romelu Lukaku is still a doubt for the game on Boxing Day, so we should see Rashford continue to lead the line.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

The Englishman scored a brace in our last game and there is no reason to drop him given his goal-scoring antics.
