Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have formed a solid duo at the heart of defence. Ole is likely to rely on their partnership going into further into the season. The rest of the lads will have to wait patiently for their chances. At least, the situation looks like this at the moment.
“I do have too many centre-backs to keep everyone happy,” Solskjaer told reporters ahead of the Wolves clash. “But we need to win games, we need to perform, so we’re going to pick the players that will give us the biggest chance to win games.
“They’re all quality centre-backs and I know that we will need quite a few of them. Of course, Eric’s injury means that at the moment I’ve got six fit ones, which is maybe one too many to keep everyone involved. But then that’s our jobs, to make the most of what we have now, and for them as well to make sure every day in training.
“And when they get the chance, because they will — we’ve got loads of games, play well when you get it. All of these, Marcos, Phil, Chris — they’ve been here for a long time and they’ve proven that they can do it.”
