Manchester United is back in action after a week’s break following their 2-1 win over Derby last Saturday. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will be looking to record back-to-back victories as they ramp up their pre-season preparations.
The Norwegian boss comes into the game in high spirits, having put pen-to-paper on a new three-year deal at the club. Solskjaer was rewarded for his fine work earlier on Saturday and is set to stay until at least 2024.
Despite using as many as 23 players in the victory over Wayne Rooney’s side last week, Solskjaer has stuck with most of the starting side at Pride Park.

Tom Heaton, who capped his debut with a couple of fine saves, starts again whilst the backline is unchanged. Andreas Pereira and Nemanja Matic replace the two academy players in midfield whilst Daniel James makes his first pre-season appearance.
Facundo Pellistri starts after scoring last week and so does Jesse Lingard following his successful loan spell under David Moyes at West Ham.
Man Utd XI (4-2-3-1): Heaton; Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Mengi, Williams; Pereira, Matic; Pellistri, Lingard, James; Greenwood
