Manchester United sit comfortably in second place but it seems unlikely that they will be able to overtake Man City to win the title.
Nevertheless, the Red Devils should continue to focus on winning and Ole should start his strongest possible side against Leeds United.
Transfer: Star prepared to agree £330,000-a-week deal to sign for Manchester United – Report
As far as the team news is concerned, Solskjaer has confirmed (Man Utd) Marcus Rashford has not trained but he hopes that the England international will join the squad.
It will be wise to not risk the star attacker. He started as the main center forward up front in the last game against Burnley. In his place, Edinson Cavani should return to start as the lone striker.
Behind the Uruguayan, the likes of Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes should start in the attacking midfield.
As far as the central midfield is concerned, Scott McTominay and Brazilian star Fred would likely retain their starting positions.
Eric Bailly missed a few games after contracting coronavirus and the good news is that he is back and has trained as well. So, the Ivorian should be part of the squad vs Leeds but he could be on the bench.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw should start in the fullback positions, on the other hand, the likes of Victor Lindelof and captain Harry Maguire must start in the central defense.
In the goal, Ole has mainly preferred Dean Henderson over David De Gea in the Premier League and the English shot stopper should start ahead of the Spaniard again.
Man Utd’s strongest possible XI vs Leeds United: Henderson: Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw: McTominay, Fred: Greenwood, Fernandes, Pogba: Cavani
