Reasons Why Scott Will Change Positions Vs Leicester City As Ole Face Injury Crisis In United's Camp

As premier league set for a return to our screens by these weekend with again some entertaining game of fixtures Line-up. Especially as struggling Manchester United pay the foxes a visit to King Power Stadium.

Injuries to Ole Gunnar's side has added more salt to the wound after two defensive pair. Captain and the World Cup and UEFA Nation league winner Varane. Confirmed to have gone out with groin problem which is suspected to keep him out for some weeks.

Meanwhile United boss has both Victor, Bailly and Jones to choose from in a bid to replace the injured duo. But now that has some serious question marks due to how best can Victor and Bailly partnership stop both Kelechi and Vardy.

Meanwhile that may have been solved by Scotland as they played host to Israel in October International two week break. As they deployed Scott in defensive back three which despite concededing two goals. But went on to score three with the latter grabbing late winner in stoppage time.

Ole maybe tempted to make changes especially Scott dropping to partner Victor in central defence. While Wan Bissaka and Luke Shaw keep there respective positions. And so is a problem with Fred and Cavani who will miss next fixture too.

As the two will be involved in Brazil against Uruguay just less than 36 hours. To premier league kick-off on Saturday. But these will only mean after long time of frustrations on the bench to even miss out Hollands callups for World Cup qualifiers the past two weeks.

Van de Beek would be desperate to start in midfield possibly besides Pogba. If the boss again overlooks the Dutchman maybe to favor Matic for Frenchman's partnership in the middle of the park.

It may force the former Ajax star to be furious and concider January exit. A tricky team selection awaits the Manchester United manager. Considering that the Italians Atalanta will follow next mid-week in Champions league commitments.
