Premier League

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's led Manchester United will be hoping to get back to winning ways when they resume their Premier League campaign following the international break against Leicester City on Saturday week.

The Red Devils could be handed a big boost ahead of the match as the duo of Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford is set to return to the pitch by then.

Their possible return is surely good news for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he'll have a lot of quality options in his starting XI.

In this article, we'll be looking at a possible way the Red Devils could set up their starting XI after the international break. Check it out below:

Formation

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could adopt the 4-3-3 formation to accommodate some of the returning players.

Goalkeeper

David De Gea has been in an electric form lately. As such, he's expected to retain his place in the goal ahead of Dean Henderson.

Defense

As for the backline, Harry Maguire's imminent return could see Victor Lindelof drop from the starting XI.

The club's captain could continue his central defensive partnership with Raphael Varane.

Though Alex Telles and Dalot have also been performing well lately, they aren't expected to displace the duo of Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the full-back spots.

Midfield

In the middle of the park, the duo of Paul Pogba and Fred could be used as double-pivots with Bruno Fernandes being an undisputed starter in the attacking-midfield position.

Scott McTominay is also an option from the bench regarding one of the double-pivot positions.

Attack

Marcus Rashford's imminent return could see him automatically take a place in the left-wing-forward position with Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho occupying the other two positions upfront.

Mason Greenwood's performances level seems to have drastically reduced in recent weeks, as such, his place in the starting XI could become disputed.

Here's an illustration of the possible lineup below:
