Manchester United team news ahead of Luton clash

Manchester United team news ahead of Luton clash

There will be a number of changes to Manchester United's starting lineup when they play Luton, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed. 

The Reds suffered a humiliating 3-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace on Saturday in their first Premier League match and will be eager to make amends. 

Solskjaer has hinted at giving more players more minutes as they get up to speed, following an unusual pre-season. 

“We’ll make some changes,” Ole told us on Monday at the Aon Training Complex. “Of course we will. For some, it’s the pre-season and, for some, they’ve only been here for a week now, for different reasons. Some of them need game-time, they do and we can see we’re lacking in sharpness. We just need to make the most of the training sessions and games we have.”

Good news for the Norwegian though is that there are no new injuries, which means he will have the entire team to pick from. 

”No injuries," he answered the question on whether or not there are fresh injuries. 

"no fresh injuries after that game [on Saturday] but, as I said, we’ll rotate and give some minutes. Some, after the game, will do some harder training this week to get ready for Brighton. Some will join the squad and go down there.”

Dean Henderson could be in line for a start in place of David De Gea, who started the match against Palace.
