Ole Gunnar Solskjaer watches the players train in Singapore.

United make six changes for Inter encounter

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his side to take on Inter Milan in the opening game of the International Champions Cup.

The competitive fixture at the Singapore National Stadium allows the boss to start planning for the Premier League opener against Chelsea at Old Trafford next month.

David De Gea and Luke Shaw return after being forced to miss the win over Leeds United in midweek, while Axel Tuanzebe, who did not get off the bench in that 4-0 victory, is handed a start in the middle of defence, alongside Victor Lindelof.

Marcus Rashford is out to score for the third successive game on Tour 2019 and he is likely to play in a central role with Anthony Martial reverting to his more familiar left-sided slot. Jesse Lingard who, like Martial, came off the bench in midweek, is also in the XI.

Nemanja Matic is drafted in for Scott McTominay and also takes on the captain's armband while both summer signings Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Dan James start. Lee Grant and Romelu Lukaku are the only players in the squad unavailable so Matteo Darmian and Fred are among the substitutes after linking up with the squad.

United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Shaw; Pogba, Matic; James, Lingard, Martial; Rashford.

Subs: Romero, J. Pereira, Dalot, Darmian, Young, Bailly, Jones, Rojo, Smalling, A. Pereira, Fred, Garner, Gomes, Mata, McTominay, Chong, Greenwood.

Inter: Hadanovic; D'Ambrosio, De Vrij, Skriniar; Candreva, Gagliardini, Brozovic, Sensi, Dalbert; Esposito, Longo.
