Later today, Manchester United takes on Valerenga Football in their penultimate pre-season tour game. The match takes place in Norway, and the Red Devils aren’t even spending the night on foreign soil, instead, they chose to jet out this morning.
The official Twitter account tweeted out a few pictures of the lads arriving at the stadium donning Addidas’ new sleek looking training gear. Amongst the travelling bunch was Andreas Pereira, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Have a look at the photos pre-Valerenga here:

The game itself should be an interesting one, and hopefully, we get another chance to see youngsters like the aforementioned Pereira in action. Obviously, Jose Mourinho will be using this as an opportunity to get a good look at the players who won’t necessarily be starting every week.
At the end of the day, whoever we put out on the field, this is a fixture that we should be winning. But, the most important thing is building match fitness ahead of the Premier League starting. Another key factor is coming through this game unscathed without any injuries hitting us and hampering our preparations.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the match later and I’m feeling confident!
