Manchester United starting lineup: Heaton; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez Fernandez; Hannibal, Forson, Mainoo; Sancho, Mount, Amad.

Manchester United substitutes: Bishop, Kovar, Bennett, Fish, Jurado, Williams, Collyer, Gore, Hansen-Aaroen, Oyedele, Savage, Shoretire, Emeran, Hugill.

Erik ten Hag kicks off his pre-season preparations this afternoon as Manchester United take on Leeds United in Oslo.

The Ullevaal Stadion is the venue for this afternoon’s ‘friendly’ between two bitter rivals.

This is the home of the Norwegian national team having previously housed FK Lyn and Valerenga.

Today, it’s all about Manchester United and Leeds United, with Ten Hag’s lineup no doubt under the microscope.

Ten Hag has gone with Tom Heaton in goal this afternoon amid links with a move to Everton.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Alvaro Fernandez are the full backs today, whilst Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez start at centre back.

Things get a little tricky further up the pitch, but it looks like a midfield three of Hannibal Mejbri, new signing Mason Mount and Kobbie Mainoo.

That would leave Jadon Sancho, Amad Diallo and Omari Forson in attack, with some fluidity expected between the three.

It’s a very young United bench today with Nathan Bishop, Matej Kovar, Rhys Bennett, Will Fish, Marc Jurado, Brandon Williams, Toby Collyer, Dan Gore, Isak Hansen-Aaroen, Maxi Oyedele, Charlie Savage, Shola Shoretire, Noam Emeran and Joe Hugill all involved.

Mason Mount makes his debut

All eyes will be on Mason Mount this afternoon as he plays his first game for United.

This won’t be anything like his Premier League debut for United but Mount will be desperate to impress.

Mount’s move to United was a protracted one and fans can now finally see him pull on the famous red shirt.

A goal against Leeds would be quite the way to announce himself and United fans will be looking to see Mount shine alongside his new teammates.
