Alex Telles is set to be handed his Manchester United debut tonight as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travels to Paris to face PSG at the Parc des Princes.
The Red Devils have had a peculiar start to the 2020/21 season, with their most notable result being their 6-1 dismantlement at the hands of former United boss Jose Mourinho as Spurs ran riot at Old Trafford.
However, their very next game saw them win 4-1 against Newcastle United almost as if nothing happened two weeks prior.
Ole will be keen to get this season’s European campaign started with a win as his side get set to face PSG away from home and in handing new signing Alex Telles his debut, will hope to get his tactics right.
The Red Devils will aim to pressure PSG high up the pitch like they did against Liverpool in the 2019/20 season at Old Trafford where Ole deployed a back three with five in midfield and two upfront.
Telles and Wan Bissaka will operate as wing-backs while Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe will be deployed as the three centre backs.
Meanwhile, further forward, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will need to make the most of the limited chances they are likely to get in order to help United steal an away win in the opening game of the 2020/21 Champions League season.
Man Utd starting XI: De Gea, Lindelof, Shaw, Tuanzebe, Telles, Wan Bissaka, McTominay, Fred, Fernandes, Martial, Rashford.
Subs: Pogba, Henderson, Mata, Ighalo, Van De Beek, Williams, Matic, Pellistri, Fosu-Mensah, James.
