PAUL POGBA, Mason Greenwood and Eric Bailly are reportedly set to start for Manchester United tonight.
The Express claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made three changes to his side for the crunch clash against fellow top-four hopefuls Sheffield United.
But David De Gea has kept his place in Man Utd’s starting XI despite his horror show against Tottenham.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly play Pogba in midfield alongside Scott McTominay, with Fred dropping out of the side.
Greenwood comes in on the right wing for Daniel James, with Marcus Rashford on the left and Bruno Fernandes playing behind Anthony Martial.
De Gea is in goal and will be protected by a partnership of Harry Maguire and Bailly, with Victor Lindelof relegated to the bench.
However, Brandon Williams is set to continue on the sidelines with Luke Shaw starting with Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the full-back positions.
Speaking ahead of the game, Solskjaer claimed United were close to challenging Liverpool and Man City for the Premier League title.
He said: “We’ve developed over the season and had a spell of 11 unbeaten. [Then we] added Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford to that and are thinking: ‘Yeah, we’re not too far away.’
“I’m very happy with the squad. If there are any good deals to be made, players to make us better, of course we might have to spend some money. But the squad is great to work with and it’s moving in the right direction.
“We’re still not where we want to be, close enough to challenge for the Premier League trophy, but we take one step at a time.
“Hopefully we can challenge for the Europa League and FA Cup this season and the top four. Then, let’s see how much we can invest for next season.
“We’re getting closer and closer to the team we want to be and in the next eight [league] games we want to dominate and be tested.
“We’ve only conceded three goals in the last 12 games and are getting better and better as a team – well organised, hard to break down and we’ve always got quality to go and score goals.”
