The game is another big test for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his men as the Toffees are in very good form currently.

Ahead of the match, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is faced with some injury worries. His skipper Harry Maguire is still sidelined for a few weeks while first-choice left-back Luke Shaw's availability for the match isn't certain yet.

Though Marcus Rashford and Amad are reportedly getting closer to full fitness, they aren't expected to play again until after the international break, which begins next week.

In this article, we'll be taking a look at the possible way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could set up his side without these key players for tomorrow's game. Check it out below:

Formation

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is known to prefer the 4-2-3-1 formation, as such, he's expected to stick to it in tomorrow's game.

Goalkeeper

David De Gea has been in incredible form lately. His impressive saves have prevented Man United from losing some games.

As such, the Spaniard is expected to keep his place in the goal ahead of Dean Henderson.

Defense

Just like in Villarreal's game, Victor Lindelof is expected to take Harry Maguire's place in central defense. He'll form a partnership with Raphael Varane.

Alex Telles, who was very impressive against Villarreal, is expected to start in the left-back spot.

First-choice right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is available for selection once again, having been suspended in the 2-1 victory against Villarreal, as such, he's expected to return to the starting XI.

Midfield

As for the midfield, Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay should play as double-pivots while Bruno Fernandes occupies his favorite position up front.

Attack

Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly expected to keep his place as a center-forward in tomorrow's game. He could be flaked by Jadon Sancho(left-wing) and Mason Greenwood (right-wing)
