Louis van Gaal will start his preparation for the new season with a friendly against Club America who, despite their name, are a Mexican team.

Despite this trickery from the opponents, Manchester United have not been fooled and have made their way to Seattle for the match, rather than somewhere in Mexico. The double bluff did not work.

This could be a chance for United fans to get their glimpse of new signings Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay.

Four players who definitely won't feature are Javier Hernandez (injury), Victor Valdes (on the naughty step), Angel Di Maria and Marcos Rojo (recovering from the Copa America).

Time: 8.05pm PDT, 4.05am BST.

Stadium: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington

TV: MUTV in the UK, Fox Sports 1 and ESPN Deportes in America, and a live stream in America on Fox Sports Go.

Can Manchester United get an early three Premier League points? No, it is a friendly.
