Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag could make four changes to his starting XI for tomorrow’s pre-season warm-up game against Melbourne Victory.
The Red Devils were superb in their first tour game under the new manager, beating Liverpool 4-0 in Bangkok.
And with Ten Hag clearly meaning what he says when he insisted that “the standard of Manchester United is to win every game,” we expect he will want to keep the momentum going and field a strong side again tomorrow.
One change in defence is likely to be the re-introduction of Harry Maguire, who is now training with the team again.
Ten Hag said at the pre-match press conference that Maguire could play 45 minutes.
Further up the field, there could be one or two changes. Alejandro Garnacho was an unused substitute on Tuesday and so could get a chance on the left wing ahead of the still-struggling Marcus Rashford.
We also think Zidane Iqbal’s sublime substitute performance could have earned him a chance to play from the start, with perhaps Scott McTominay dropping down.
Another possibility could be Hannibal Mejbri, another player not to get minutes on Tuesday, or Donny van de Beek getting a chance in an advanced midfield role, but Bruno Fernandes will not normally want to sit out any game and so could persuade Ten Hag to keep him in the starting XI.
With all that in mind, here is our predicted XI for tomorrow’s 11am BST kick off:
