Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided early team news ahead of Manchester United's Champions League clash against RB Leipzig.

The Bundesliga leaders arrive at Old Trafford on MD2 of this season's competition, after both teams won in their opening fixtures.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Solskjaer didn't report any new injury worries going into tonight's game.

"It’s more or less the same squad. There are a couple of doubts, as you normally have after a weekend game, a tight game as we had against Chelsea. I think we’ve more or less the same squad. It’s going to be a long season. Of course, the depth of our squad is better now."

Solskjaer then explained how it's difficult to leave such established names, such as Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, on the bench, as he has been doing of late.

"It’s hard to leave players out like the last game with Donny, Nemanja and Paul to start on the bench, as midfielders they are all experienced international footballers. It’s not easy but then, as I’ve said, we have so many games this season, they are all going to play a big, massive part in different periods of the season. I don’t think anyone is able to play all of them. There’s a balance when you put 11 together, it’s all important we all work well as a team – is it three or four or two? All sorts of discussions and who is on form and who maybe needs a break. All these little things.”
