He joins Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling and Anthony Martial in signing a new long-term deal and caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says it shows the club is planning for the future.

Otherwise United are likely to go with the same line-up which has served them well under Solskjaer to this point.

With nine wins and a draw in the ten games that he has managed so far, Solskjaer maintains an impressive record at the Old Trafford touchline. There are so many good players, (Paul) Pogba, (Marcus) Rashford; so many. 'No offence but he will be fit for about 12 games in that four years.

However, United's form under the Norwegian has sparked some reports that the job may now be given to their former striker instead.

"He deserves it at the moment", Ranieri said. Prior to his arrival the travel-shy Red Devils had scraped only one win on the road in six outings, registering just three victories in their previous 11 top-flight away games.

"But decisions, sometimes of players' futures are not down to me, either".

And this feels like a match where Solskjaer may feel he can get away with playing Juan Mata on the right - although he would be wiser to deploy him through the middle - to give Jesse Lingard the chance to rest before being unleashed in midweek.
