Cristiano Ronaldo has been dropped by new manager Erik ten Hag for his first Manchester United starting XI, against Brighton.

Cristiano Ronaldo was pushing to be included despite his late start to pre-season and attempts to leave the club, while Anthony Martial has enjoyed a fine run of pre-season form but has since suffered a hamstring injury.

Jadon Sancho does start through after missing the friendly defeat to Atletico Madrid with illness. Scott McTominay returned in the trip to Oslo to make his comeback from injury and is also in from the offer.

Concerns over Luke Shaw have been eased after his return to training following his absence in last weekend’s pair of friendlies. Tyrell Malacia will wait for his debut.

Ten Hag confirmed new signings Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen are fit enough for a starting spot, and that’s what they got.

Confirmed teams

Man Utd: de Gea, Dalot, Maguire, Martinez, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Sancho, Eriksen, Bruno Fernandes, Rashford

Subs: Ronaldo, Malacia, Varane, Heaton, Wan-Bissaka, van de Beek, Elanga, Garner, Garnacho

Brighton: Sanchez, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, March, Lallana, Caicedo, Trossard, Gross, Mac Allister, Welbeck

Subs: Lamptey, Colwill, Mwepu, Maupay, Sarmiento, Undav, Mitoma, Steele, van Hecke
