Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named his team for the opening pre-season friendly at Derby County.

The 13:00 BST kick-off is live on MUTV from Pride Park as the Reds take on Wayne Rooney's Rams, in front of up to 8,000 fans.

There is plenty of youth, as expected, in the line-up.

Tom Heaton makes his senior debut in his second spell at the club after signing in the summer on a free transfer from Aston Villa.

Juan Mata captains the side while Tahith Chong starts, ahead of his loan move to Birmingham City before the campaign gets under way. Dylan Levitt and James Garner are in midfield, while Mason Greenwood leads the line.


United: Heaton; Wan-Bissaka, Mengi, Tuanzebe, Williams; Levitt, Garner; Elanga, Mata (c), Chong; Greenwood.

Subs: Grant, Bishop, Telles, Fish, Bernard, Lingard, Andreas, Pellistri, Matic, Hannibal, Galbraith, Shoretire, Hugill.
