Manchester United are back in pre-season action on Thursday, facing off against Premier League opposition in the form of Tottenham Hotspur. The International Champions Cup match takes place in Shanghai, and represents the sternest test of the tour so far for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men. Spurs are at a similar place to United in terms of their fitness, and both sides should be expected to start with something close to their strongest available teams.
Romelu Lukaku looks set to continue his absence due to “injury,” but Victor Lindelöf and Tahith Chong should both have recovered from minor knocks in the previous match.
