Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to make major changes to his starting XI against Real Sociedad in the Europa League at Old Trafford tonight, despite a 4-0 lead from the first leg in Turin last Thursday

The boss has only made four changes to the 11 players who started with the 3-1 Premier League home win over Newcastle last Sunday

Dean Henderson, who was the goalkeeper in national cup competitions and in Europe in 2021, replaces David De Gea
Eric Bailly joins the center of defense for captain Harry Maguire, along with Alex Telles as left-back for Luke Shaw from the Newcastle win. Both the Ivorian and Brazilian played in Italy last week

The only other change compared to the game against the Magpies is Mason Greenwood, who started the first leg against the Spaniards and replaces Marcus Rashford

“Every game you play for Man United is a big one and the players out there know our responsibility To represent this great club, you want to produce a strong team that represents us in the right way. “He told BT Sport” We obviously want to win the game. You want to build more momentum, faith and confidence, and you just do that by performing well ”

Solskjaer also said the Euro tie is also another chance for Henderson to make his claims

“Dean is here now, he is maturing, he is getting more and more games and of course he is such a talented goalkeeper and we know what David can do and I think it is important that we find out and Dean his own skills can prove and I entrust him with everything I have, “said the boss

The boss reveals what he expects from United and Real Sociedad, and discusses promoting another Academy starlet

Eight of the players in Solskjaer’s starting line-up tonight in our second leg of the last 32 games were in the team that built that fabulous lead from the first leg

Skipper Maguire takes a rare break and Bruno Fernandes wears the armband instead of the defender

Fernandes scored our first two goals in the 4-0 first leg win at Juventus Stadium and is the second time skipper in a United shirt, having previously played against PSG in the Champions League in October

Unusually for United, there are four goalkeepers in our squad Henderson starts and De Gea, Lee Grant and Nathan Bishop sit on the bench
The youngsters Amad Diallo, Shola Shoretire and Ethan Galbraith

also sit on the bench

Ole spoke to MUTV about the teens who could potentially get a run-out and said to MUTV, “It’s a hope that you can give them time if it’s fun, but it might be necessary”Maybe you need a bright spark out there. The young guys you know aren’t just giving them minutes to charity.

“They may have to come and do something we have to do to win the game because we want to win this football game””

United star Eric says he thinks the best footballer in the world is a fellow defender

The visitors have released their group of 21 for the return leg at Old Trafford

Young midfielder Ethan could appear in the second leg against Real Sociedad at Old Trafford

In the central years of his footballing life, there are no limits to what this precocious United hero can achieve
