Pre-season: Manchester United team news vs Leeds

Manchester United will kick-off their pre-season tour in Oslo at 4pm against Leeds.

The friendly will be shown live on MUTV (as well as hundreds of streaming websites) and fans will be hoping to get a first glimpse of Mason Mount.

Mount, 24, is part of the travelling squad and is expected to make his first appearance for the club after joining from Chelsea.

Fans will also be eager to see Lisandro Martinez back in action — alongside Raphael Varane. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams are the two most senior full-backs in the squad, but we may get to see Alvaro Fernandez on the left flank at some stage.

Erik ten Hag has three options to pick from when it comes to goalkeeper. David de Gea has left the club and Dean Henderson isn’t part of the 26-man squad. It could be Tom Heaton, Nathan Bishop or Matej Kovar between the posts.

In midfield, Fred could make one of his final appearances for the club. While Isak Hansen-Aaroen will be hoping for a run out in his home country.

Amad Diallo will be hoping to give Ten Hag something to think about after his impressive loan spell at Sunderland. Antony’s absence has led to expectations that the Ivory Coast international will start on the right wing but he can play in other attacking roles.

The confirmed line-up will be announced at approximately 3pm.
