Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United line-up for AC Milan revealed

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made three changes to the Manchester United side which won 1-0 against Kristiansund in Oslo on Tuesday.

Marcos Rojo, Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata have been included in the starting line-up for the International Champions Cup match against AC Milan at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, which you can watch live on MUTV.

Rojo replaces Phil Jones at centre-back after featuring during the second-half against Ole’s hometown club in Norway.

Andreas was also a substitute at the Ullevaal Stadium but will play from the off today as summer signing Dan James starts on the bench.

Mata - who was our matchwinner on Tuesday, winning and converting a stoppage-time penalty - also returns to the starting XI and looks set to play in the no. 10 position, replacing Jesse Lingard.

David De Gea retains the captain’s armband for the fixture, which will kick off at 17:36 BST.

Lee Grant, who is yet to make an appearance for the Reds in pre-season, has been included among our 13 substitutes.

Matteo Darmian, Joel Pereira, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez did not travel with the squad to South Wales, while Ole revealed that centre-back Eric Bailly will be out until around Christmas time after undergoing a knee operation.

This is our final fixture of pre-season and we’ve won five out of five so far, including a 1-0 victory over the Rossoneri’s arch-rivals Internazionale in Singapore.

We also beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in Shanghai, meaning we go into our final ICC game with a chance of winning the trophy.

The Reds know that a win by three clear goals will see us lift the exhibition trophy for a second time, having first emerged victorious in the United States in 2014.

United: De Gea (c); Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw; Matic, McTominay; A. Pereira, Mata, Martial; Rashford.

Subs: Romero, Grant, Dalot, Jones, Smalling, Tuanzebe, Young, Fred, Gomes, Lingard, James, Chong, Greenwood.
