CONFIRMED : Man Utd XI v Barcelona

United’s confirmed team against Barcelona this evening : De Gea, Darmian, Jones, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Schneiderlin, Mata, Young, Memphis, Rooney

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Adriano, Pique, Vermaelen, Alba, Sergi Roberto, Busquets, Iniesta, Rafinha, Pedro, Suarez

David De Gea starts for the first time this pre-season.

Louis van Gaal suggested that the team which started tonight’s game would be the team that begins the Premier League season against Spurs. That’s something of a surprise as Chris Smalling – arguably United’s best performing centre half – is left out at the preference of Phil Jones, while Daley Blind plays as the left sided centre half. Ander Herrera is also surprisingly left out.

The match is live on MUTV from 9pm.

We will be providing live coverage on our Twitter account thanks to our man Stateside, Dave Murphy.
