Monday 29 July 2019 10:30

Manchester United are taking a large group to Oslo as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named a 26-man travelling party ahead of the friendly with Kristiansund.

Tuesday's match, which kicks off at 18:00 BST and is live on MUTV, is the latest key part of preparation for the upcoming campaign, which starts against Chelsea on 11 August.

It is the penultimate pre-season fixture for Ole's Reds, with our final International Champions Cup game still to come on Saturday against AC Milan in Cardiff.

Ole provides update on Bailly


The boss gives us his early assessment of Eric's injury, after the defender was stretchered off against Tottenham.

Tahith Chong, who did not feature against Tottenham after being on the receiving end of some heavy challenges in the victory over Inter Milan, has been included, along with fellow Academy youngsters Mason Greenwood and Angel Gomes, who netted the winner last time out in the 2-1 success over Spurs.

Lee Grant has been sidelined with injury but is one of four keepers in the party, along with David De Gea, Sergio Romero and Joel Pereira.

It is likely there will be plenty of substitutions at the Ullevaal Stadium as game-time and fitness remains extremely important at this stage.


David De Gea, Lee Grant, Joel Pereira, Sergio Romero; Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, Axel Tuanzebe, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Ashley Young; Fred, Angel Gomes, Daniel James, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Andreas Pereira, Paul Pogba; Tahith Chong, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford.

Both games this week are live on MUTV as United follow up the trip to Norway with a match against AC Milan in the International Champions Cup on Saturday, kick-off 17:30 BST.
