ristiano Ronaldo was dropped by new manager Erik ten Hag for his first Manchester United starting XI, against Brighton.
Cristiano Ronaldo was pushing to be included despite his late start to pre-season and attempts to leave the club, while Anthony Martial enjoyed fine pre-season form but has since suffered a hamstring injury.
Jadon Sancho starts after missing the friendly loss to Atletico Madrid through illness. Scott McTominay returned on the trip to Oslo to return from injury and is also on offer.
Concerns over Luke Shaw have been allayed after he returned to training after missing both friendlies last weekend. Tyrell Malacia will be waiting for his debut.
Ten Hag has confirmed that new signings Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen are fit enough for a starting spot, and that’s what they got.
