Speaking about his team selection during his pre-Man United press conference, Howe said: “We’ll be juggling minutes and trying to make sure we are very competitive. We want to try and compete in every game but make sure when players enter the pitch they’re able to give their best.
“I think in this next game that’s going to be a bit of a juggling act but we do have the players who can play different positions. It’s one of the strengths of our squad so we’re certainly going to utilise that.”
Among the substitutes are Kieran Trippier, Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron and Bruno Guimaraes, while under-21s pair Amadou Diallo and Ben Parkinson are also included.
