Solskjaer made eight changes to the XI for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup win over Norwich, with Sergio Romero, Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailly, Fred, Scott McTominay, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Odion Ighalo all coming into the line-up.

Brandon Williams, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were introduced as substitutes, as Ole became the first manager in English football to make six changes in a competitive game.

Solskjaer said that those who were involved in the quarter-final success at Carrow Road will all be available for a starting berth, as United aim to take all three points at the Amex Stadium after two successive defeats on that part of the south coast in recent seasons.

“Apart from, of course, the after-effects of the physical work-out and coming back late, they had a recovery day yesterday and today will be an easy day and we’re just preparing for tomorrow,” Solskjaer told club media, when asked if there were any injury issues in the Reds camp.

“I think the buzz and the energy that the win and a semi-final place will give you will help us tomorrow night.”

Matchwinner Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw were the three players retained in the XI by Solskjaer in East Anglia, and the boss praised the latter's recent form and hinted that he could make a fourth consecutive start, against the Seagulls.

“We manage a squad, we manage players differently and Luke has had a good upturn in form. He's playing some good football, let's see if he starts this one,” Ole added in his pre-match press conference.

One Red who is yet to be called into action since the Premier League resumed is Angel Gomes.

The young midfielder is still under contract until 1 July (Wednesday) and available to play, although Ole admitted to reporters that it appears likely that a new deal will not be agreed.

Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones remain on the sidelines for the Reds, with neither defender having featured recently.

Angel Gomes's contract is set to expire on 1 July.


Graham Potter will be without long-term absentees Steven Alzate (groin) and Jose Izqueirdo (knee).

Tariq Lamptey, who impressed during the Seagulls’ goalless draw at Leicester last Tuesday, is a doubt with a head injury he picked up in that game, while Adam Webster also faces a fight to be fit after he suffered a hamstring problem in the first half at the King Power Stadium.
