Manchester United's Starting XI Against Everton Confuses Fans

Manchester United fans have been left baffled by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after he decided to drop Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho for the game with Everton.

It's been a tricky couple of weeks for Solskjaer, with United winning just two of their previous five games and needing a last minute winner by Ronaldo against Villarreal on Wednesday to pick up that second.

The pressure is mounting on the United boss, with results and trophies now expected after a four year dry spell and this summer's signings, and it'll only get more intense if they can't beat Everton on Saturday.

However, Solskjaer appeared to heap more pressure on himself ahead of kick off, when he announced his starting XI without Ronaldo, Pogba or summer signing Sancho, with Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial favoured ahead of them.

Cavani's introduction may not come as much that surprise, the Uruguayan forward came on in the second half on Wednesday night and helped change the game.

Fans were impressed with his closing down late in the game and with Ronaldo having played a lot recently it's not that much of a surprise the 36-year-old is starting on the bench.

The lack of Pogba, and Martial's inclusion, will come as more of a surprise. The French forward's form has not been good this season and he is reportedly up for sale in January.
