Preview: QPR v Manchester United pre-season friendly

Manchester United’s pre-season continues this weekend, when the Reds travel to Loftus Road to play Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, in a match you will be able to watch live on MUTV.

Last week we enjoyed watching the lads start their pre-season campaign with a 2-1 win over Derby County at Pride Park Stadium as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fielded 23 players to ensure everyone available got minutes to brush up their match fitness.

The squad spent the week in Surrey where they’ve had a week-long training camp to prepare themselves for QPR. It will be the first meeting between the two sides since January 2015 (when they were last in the top-flight) – which ended 2-0 in United’s favour, thanks to goals from Maraoune Fellaini and James Wilson.

Daniel James and Scott McTominay joined their teammates this week after their participation at Euro 2020.

Manchester United training camp squad: Nathan Bishop, Lee Grant, Tom Heaton, Matej Kova; Di’Shon Bernard, Teden Mengi, Alex Telles, Axel Tuanzebe, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Brandon Williams; Andrea Pereira, Ethan Galbraith, James Garner, Hannibal, Daniel James, Dylan Levitt, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay, Facundo Pellistri; Tahith Chong, Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood, Joe Hugill, Shola Shoretire.

More football fans are streaming matches than ever before to avoid pricy subscription fees. The only thing worth paying for – if you do this – is a solid VPN app. For example, you can use a VPN to improve your cybersecurity and keep personal information safe (http://nordvpn.com/download/).

After taking on QPR, United will still have three more pre-season games scheduled before the start of the new season – Brentford (Wednesday 28 July, kick-off 20:00), Preston North End (Saturday 31 July, kick-off 14:00) and Everton (Saturday 7 August, kick-off 12:45). The aim is for everyone to be match fit before the season starts without any niggles or injuries.

We are delighted for QPR that this game will see the Championship club welcome back fans to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium at full capacity for the first time in 17 months. Following a meeting with the EFL this week, the club confirmed they will not require spectators to use the NHS App Covid Pass or any form of ‘Covid Passport’ for these friendly matches.

Build up for the QPR game will be available on all of the Stretty News social feeds – Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – with match highlights set to feature on the blog throughout the game.
