The Man Utd dressing room ahead of the friendly against Leeds United in Perth

Confirmed: Man Utd team to face Leeds

Wednesday 17 July 2019 10:52

New signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka will make his first Manchester United start after being selected in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting line-up to face Leeds United in Perth.

The 21-year-old is one of nine changes from our side which faced Perth Glory in the opening match of Tour 2019.

Marcus Rashford, who scored the opener in that game, is included from the start, as are Daniel James and Mason Greenwood, who both impressed during their 45-minute stints at the Optus Stadium.

Juan Mata will captain the Reds in what is our first meeting against our old rivals since a League Cup tie at Elland Road in September 2011.

Our second match of tour kicks off 12:00 BST (19:00 local time) and is live on MUTV.

The only player other than James to keep his place in the starting line-up from the Perth Glory game is Sergio Romero, who is behind a back four of Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo.

Lindelof and Bailly missed out on Saturday's match, while Rojo, like Wan-Bissaka, was a half-time substitute.

Paul Pogba will operate in midfield with Scott McTominay after both players impressed off the bench for the Reds at the weekend.

United: Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Rojo; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Mata, James; Rashford.

Substitutes: J. Pereira, Dalot, Jones, Smalling, Tuanzebe, Young, Andreas, Garner, Gomes, Lingard, Matic, Chong, Martial.

Solskjaer's men will play in the club's new 2019/20 home kit for the first time, after donning the away strip on Saturday. The famous red shirt is available through United Direct.

The clash with Leeds United is the second of six pre-season games that you can watch on MUTV this summer, including the meetings with Tottenham Hotspur, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
