Confirmed Man Utd XI vs Kristiansund: McTominay and Matic partner up in midfield

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named a slightly more experienced than expected XI to face his hometown club Kristiansund in our latest pre-season friendly.

There are no surprises in defence with David de Gea between the sticks, while Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka operate from the full-back positions. Phil Jones has been chosen to partner Victor Lindelof at the back.

In midfield, it’s a disciplined duo of Nenamja Matic and Scott McTominay, with Jesse Lingard expected to take up the no.10 role to pull all of the strings from the centre.

A front trio of Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford should plenty of pressure on the Kristiansund defence. Their pace will cause plenty of problems.
