Western Australia is buzzing ahead of Manchester United’s pre-season tour match against Aston Villa at the Optus Stadium. It will be our final game in Australia before the team moves on to Norway where they will take on Atletico Madrid in another friendly.
Manchester United won their two matches in Melbourne against Melbourne Victory and Crystal Palace, after previously beating Liverpool 4-0 in Thailand, so Erik ten Hag will be looking to make it four wins from as many games when they play in Perth on Saturday.
Crystal Palace and Leeds United are currently based in Perth, too.
The players have touched down in Perth and the official Twitter account has shared multiple pictures of the players arriving.
