Manchester United vs. Kitchee FC: Lineups and live match thread

Matt King

Wilfried Zaha and Michael Keane both get starts as Manchester United take on Kitchee FC on the pitch of death.

Manchester United starting line-up: Ben Amos; Patrice Evra, Will Keane, Chris Smalling, Fabio da Silva; Tom Cleverley, Michael Carrick; Ashley Young, Anderson, Wilfried Zaha; Danny Welbeck.

David Moyes' starting lineup to take on Kitchee FC sees the United manager hand starts to youngsters Will Keane and Wilfried Zaha, as well as the interesting deployment of Anderson behind the striker.

Jonny Evans misses out on a start through a minor injury, but Michael Carrick returns to the first team. Fabio again gets a start at right-back, while Chris Smalling partners Keane in defence. Ben Amos is also given a run-out in goal.

Robin van Persie is benched in favour of Danny Welbeck to lead the line, while Tom Cleverley is in the pivot role alongside Carrick. Ashley Young starts on the left, with Shinji Kagawa having dropped out of the tour to continue his recuperation after taking part in the Confederations Cup.
