Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considered throwing Jadon Sancho into the Manchester United starting eleven against Southampton but he is treating his summer signings with caution. Sancho is still on the bench despite playing an hour in the friendly football match against Burnley on Tuesday, while Raphael Varane added to the squad a week after his transfer from Real Madrid was confirmed. The France international footballer hasn't played yet this summer so he needs more fitness work than Sancho, but he is among nine substitutes at St Mary's. "of course we are tempted (to throw them in) but we need to give them foundation of the work. Jadon played in the week so he's more Ready than Raphael, but he's had a good week of training," Solskjaer told Manchester United television (MUTV). Solskjaer had made two changes to the side that thrashed Leeds United on the opening weekend of the season, with Nemanja matic and Anthony Martial coming in for Scott Mc Tominay and Daniel James, who both drop to the bench. Mc Tominay missed a chunk of pre-season with an injury, and he is still struggling for fitness which is why he has dropped out of the side. Anthony Martial is starting the game for the first time after suffering a serious knee injury on international duty in March.
