Manchester United are back in the Champions League with a game against RB Leipzig at Old Trafford

Manchester United are looking for two out of two Champions League wins with their first European home game of the season against RB Leipzig

United recorded an impressive 2-1 victory at PSG last week to start the season in a winning way, with Leipzig currently leading the group after their 2-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a similar squad for the weekend’s draw with Chelsea, after a 23-man squad arrived at the team hotel earlier today There was no sign of Alex Telles, however, who impressed in PSG’s win, so Luke Shaw can continue left-back Victor Lindelof was not seen either

Donny van de Beek and Paul Pogba were part of the squad, however, after Solskjaer answered questions about how he had used both players so far this season during his press conference in ‘Tuesday pre-game

« I have so many options within the squad when it comes to picking my team for every game and I’m sure whoever I pick tonight will be up for another chance »

Axel Tuanzebe could be back in United defense after Victor Lindelof failed to arrive with the team at the Hilton this afternoon There was no sign of Alex Telles either

United can / will name 12 substitutes tonight, although Facundo Pellistri had to line up at the directors entrance to enter the stadium

It’s nothing official, but it should be noted that the UEFA website only lists Eric Bailly as absent tonight with Alex Telles still on the roster Jesse Lingard is the only other player listed as « doubtful » and he was not spotted at the team hotel earlier

The words ‘No Telles’ are currently all the rage in the UK and you can understand the concerns of fans when a summer signing to replace an injury-prone left-back himself is on the sidelines

The Brazilian was not seen in any of Tuesday’s training footage and was not part of the squad spotted earlier today His absence is not a major blow, but a minor concern with Luke Shaw quite reliable this calendar year

Looks like Victor Lindelof is in the squad tonight He was not seen with the squad earlier

It will be interesting to see who starts tonight in the defensive midfield with Fred and Scott McTominay excelling as a duet, but Nemanja Matic is the preferred anchor to play a larger game system

United can’t get away with a 3-5-2 because they are at home and don’t have the staff to do it either

As always with a Solskjaer side, the selection of the midfielder will be the most intriguing, especially because he has so many viable options to take

He is 0-0 between Istanbul Basaksehir and PSG, the Turkish side looking the most lively in attack

PSG also received a heavy blow, with Neymar injuring himself and leaving in the middle of the first half

Facundo Pellistri impressed for U23 against Everton last Friday night and he could be in line for a possible start tonight

It is highly unlikely that he will start with the club well aware that he must first settle at Old Trafford, but he will at least be on the bench

United can name 12 Champions League substitutes and make up to five, sp if the game goes well this could be the perfect platform for a senior debut

Could tonight be the night we finally see Donny van de Beek start a big game?

Nothing would really surprise you The Dutch international has arguably played the best football of any club midfield, but can’t start unless he’s in the Carabao Cup?

Or maybe he just likes energy drinks? In that case, facing Red Bull tonight could be the perfect opportunity for him to show off his abilities

Not that he needs it, he’s a proven Champions League player and fans won’t be happy if he’s on the bench again

Kylian Mbappe has promised a response from PSG tonight and they are about to start in Istanbul

They are the favorites to win, as they were last week, but if more points are lost tonight United will have even more incentive to beat RB Leipzig tonight Solskjaer’s side could finish the night at the top of the group, second or third depending on the results

PSG face Istanbus Basaksehir early in kick-off, looking to join United and Leipzig with three points

The French side are expected to bounce back from the loss to United, but it would be a huge motivation for United and Leipzig tonight if they knew they could stretch their margin on PSG in any way. it would be

Speaking of Dayot Upamecano, United’s transfer interest in the Frenchman was still going to reappear this week, with the club having spotted him a lot since he was a teenager

Solskjaer is keen on signing a new center-back next year even with revitalized Axel Tuanzebe, but of course the main concern is trying to get rid of those who are already at the club

Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Eric Bailly should all be free to leave Upamecano, the current frontrunner, to replace one of them A good performance tonight would do him no harm

Leipzig will be without defender Nordi Mukiele tonight, but Tyler Adams could play and Kevin Kampl is available

A week ago, United were under pressure as they faced a PSG side that were big favorites, despite their own obvious flaws

However, tonight is a different test with Solskjaer’s favorites against a constantly improving team on the pitch

United have often been shocked with the underdogs tag, but often disappointed when you expect them to win It should be a game that tells us a lot about how far we have come since the international break

Victor Lindelof was not spotted as part of the United squad today, which should only confirm Axel Tuanzebe’s return to the squad after his brilliant performance in Paris a week ago

The 22-year-old was due to be recalled tonight regardless of the staff, but Lindelof’s absence will only make him stronger Harry Maguire will also begin, so we can see the first real signs that the duo are working or not well together as a defensive partnership

Manchester United have been forced to move to another hotel as RB Leipzig stay at the Lowry

The MEN understand that United wanted to stay at their usual pre-match base at The Lowry and investigated at short notice, only to find that they had already been booked by Leipzig ahead of the League’s draw. tonight’s champions

United instead moved to the Manchester Hilton on Deansgate, which they last used before the Manchester derby in April 2019

Alex Telles was no longer with the United squad, having missed Saturday’s goalless draw with Chelsea The 27-year-old had an impressive away debut at Paris Saint-Germain last week, but was replaced midway through the second half by Paul Pogba

David de Gea, Dean Henderson, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe, Teden Mengi, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Brandon Williams, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek, Scott McTominay, Fred , Bruno Fernandes, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Facundo Pellistri, Marcus Rashford, Odion Ighalo, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani
