Man Utd news: Owen Hargreaves picks Solskjaer’s best starting XI in 3-4-3 formation | Football | Sport
Owen Hargreaves has picked his strongest Manchester United XI.
The Red Devils have struggled to find form this season, with Solskjaer’s men currently tenth in the Premier League.
United have won just three of their opening 11 league games this time out.
The Red Devils have had injury problems, with Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof having spells on the sidelines.
And former United ace Hargreaves has picked his strongest line up ahead of the Red Devils’ clash against Brighton on Sunday.
Hargreaves opted to include youngster Mason Greenwood over the likes of Daniel James, with the 18-year-old impressing in limited game time this season.
When discussing his best XI, Hargreaves said on BT Sport: “I love Tuanzebe, I think he’s going to be a good player. Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in those wing-back positions is also good.
“(Paul) Pogba and (Scott) McTominay can be box to box in those positions. The width comes from those wing-backs and then Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood can play more narrow.
“I think the balance of that team is good and they would score plenty of goals.”
Hargreaves’ best United XI:
De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Tuanzebe, Shaw, Pogba, McTominay, Greenwood, Martial, Rashford.
Solskjaer has been vocal on United’s struggles this season, with the Norwegian adamant his team will get better with time.
He said: “I think this team is improving and the longer time we get together, the more we will improve.
“It’s not just about this competition. We’ve come through this period since the last break with some good performances and more belief.
“I can see the improvement in these kids more and more. We need the experienced lads.
“Paul, we’ve got Anthony back and hopefully we’ll have Luke back soon, Eric will be back soon.”
When asked if United will splash the cash in January, Solskjaer added: “The priority now is to get the players fit and get to the next round.
“We always look at the long term with transfers, it might be none, might be one, might be two in January.
“It’s always the summer… you can’t really do too many big deals in January.”
