That lineup mostly featured young players but the big guns are out in force tonight.

The big news comes in goal as new signing Andre Onana starts between the sticks for United.

Raphael Varane lines up against his former club tonight and will partner Lisandro Martinez at the back.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw are given the nod as full backs tonight with Diogo Dalot only on the bench.

Kobbie Mainoo’s dream pre-season continues as he partners ex-Real Madrid star Casemiro in midfield.

That means Antony and Jadon Sancho are on the bench tonight, joining Tom Heaton, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams, Amad Diallo, Christian Eriksen, Scott McTominay, Donny van de Beek and Omari Forson.
