Manchester United are in action against Atletico Madrid this afternoon as they play their penultimate friendly of the summer on what is a busy weekend for the club.

Erik ten Hag has named a strong starting lineup for a tough meeting with Diego Simeone’s side in Oslo with United’s Premier League season opener at home to Brighton now only a week away.

New signings Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen have been involved in training sessions and could well get a run out having been included on the bench in Norway.

Cristiano Ronaldo has not made the trip, though declared on social media on Friday night that he was ready to return in the match with Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford on Sunday.

While all the usual caveats to pre-season games must be applied, United have shown promising signs under new management thus far and Atletico, no matter the context of the game, will likely provide a stern test.

Jadon Sancho misses out through illness, so Anthony Elanga starts alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in attack.

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Malacia, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Elanga, Martial, Rashford
