Manchester United squad vs Leeds United announced: Four players ruled out

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has announced his Manchester United squad that will take on Leeds United on Saturday in the Premier League and four players not included.

Man United will look to start off their season on a high against Leeds and the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen had earlier predicted wins for the Reds.

Jadon Sancho, who joined the Red Devils in June, was part of the United squad that arrives at the team’s Lowry Hotel, reported by MEN.

The winger told BT Sport on Friday that he was ‘buzzing’ for the United opener against Leeds United and Solskjaer revealed in his press conference that the 21-year-old will definitely get playing time this weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Team News:

“Jadon is going to be involved. He’s had a good week. Unfortunately, he was ill after his holiday and we’ve lost out on a few days of training with him.

“But he’s gelled really well with the group and he has looked sharper than expected, so he’ll be involved. I can’t tell you if he’ll start or not, though.

“The important thing is what I expect from my team. The opponents you can prepare for but for us it’s about ourselves, we’ve had a good pre-season, the last couple of weeks have been really good with everyone back in.

“Even though we’re still missing a few players through injury and COVID, we’re still feeling confident and ready for the game.”

Manchester United squad vs Leeds United:
