The Premier League season is growing closer, with Jose Mourinho’s side already looking a lot stronger. Despite the Chinese tour squad looking somewhat low on numbers, that has just been bolstered as plenty of new faces arrived for training for the first time this season.
Ahead of the game against Galatasaray in Sweden, we’ve taken a look at a probable line-up, and it is much stronger.
Sergio Romero starts in goal as De Gea is yet to return, and he’ll have Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling in front of him. Luke Shaw will continue, and Timothy Fosu-Mensha also starts.
Onto the midfield, we have Marouane Fellaini and Morgan Schneiderlin in the defensive roles, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan further forward. Marcus Rashford will get his first start of pre-season, as will Anthony Martial. They’ll also likely be a debut for a certain Zlatan Ibrahimovic – and what a time to get it in his home country.
