Manchester United vs Leipzig: preview
The Red Devils could see the return of Axel Tuanzebe in a three-man defence, which worked perfectly well against the French champions.
Summer signings Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek could line up in the starting XI if Ole Gunnar Solksjaer decides to give some rest to Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford. United will host Arsenal next weekend and they desperately need a victory in that, as they currently sit 15th in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, in midfield Solksjaer will have plenty of options, with Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Fred and Scott McTominay all available.
On the other hand, Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones are still injured.
As for the visitors, Leipzig go into the match with several injuries, especially in defence. Marcel Halstenberg, Lukas Klostermann will miss it due to injuries. Nordi Mukiele was forced off in the weekend victory over Hertha and hasn't travelled, so Benjamin Henrichs could take his spot.
The midfield line of the early Bundesliga leaders won’t be at its best either, with Konrad Laimer and Amadou Haidara out, while Tyler Adams will remain doubtful until the final training session. Kevin Kampl is fit and could play from the start.
