Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already dropped Manchester United vs Chelsea team news hint
Manchester United fans will get a clear idea of the team Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to name against Chelsea when the Reds face AC Milan on Saturday.
United will look to make it a clean sweep of wins in pre-season when they lock horns with the Rossoneri in Cardiff having won all five of their 2019-20 warm-up matches thus far.
And prior to the beginning of United’s pre-season schedule, Solskjaer told MUTV the line-up he selects against Milan is likely to be the one that plays against Chelsea eight days later.
“We’re getting close to the league then,” Solskjaer said. “To play against Milan in Cardiff is a great chance for us to put the full team out and test ourselves before the league starts.
“We’ve got seven or eight days after this AC Milan game so that’s going to be vital game for us to just lay the last little foundations so we’re ready for the league.
“We’re going to have to play a top team [against Milan] because we want to go into the league knowing each other, some relationships being built.
“It will probably look like the team that will start the first league game, maybe one or two changes.”
Solskjaer will be hoping for a more ruthless performance in front of goal from his forwards following Tuesday’s narrow win over Kristiansund.
“I’ve said before in press conferences that we need to be more clinical,” Solskjaer said after the match. “That’s where you win the games. I think we’re looking solid at the back.
“We’re going to keep working, keep improving, keep making the relationships and the patterns between the players work even better.
“It’s something we’re going to have to improve on.”
