Manchester United host Everton in their last pre-season game of the summer.
Next week the Reds start their Premier League game with a home clash against Leeds United.
There are several familiar faces returning to the line-up today including: De Gea, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial.
It could be a big season for Martial following the news Marcus Rashford will miss the start of the season due to a shoulder operation. The French forward didn’t impress last term and this year, it could be his last chance in a Red shirt to show his value to the team.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named the following XI to face Everton: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Matic, Van de Beek, Fernandes; James, Greenwood, Martial.

It looks like we’ll see the team lined up in a 4-3-3 formation, which is something we are likely to see more of this season, with Solskjaer finally having a defence he can trust.
The addition of Raphael Varane won’t be felt today because the former Real Madrid star must self-isolate before having his medical and completing the move.
Jesse Lingard had to pull out of the squad after testing positive for COVID-19.
