David Moyes has named a young and attacking lineup for Manchester United's first game in the Japan leg of their tour. Join us here to sound off on the game...

David Moyes continues to place his trust in youth as Manchester United take on Yokohama Marinos in the first game of the tour in Japan.

Adnan Januzaj; Wilfried Zaha and Jesse Lingard, all of whom have impressed on tour so far, line up in an attacking midfield three spearheaded by Robin van Persie. Tom Cleverley and Anderson comprise the midfield, with Jonny Evans and Phil Jones at centre-back and Fabio taking the right-back spot from his brother.

As suspected, Michael Carrick is missing with a knock, while Shinji Kagawa is on the bench, surely to be brought on later in the game. Youngsters Michael Keane, Chris Smalling and Danny Welbeck are also among the substitutes, along with new arrival to the tour squad Ashley Young.

Manchester United starting line-up: David de Gea; Fabio, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra; Anderson, Tom Cleverley; Jesse Lingard, Adnan Januzaj, Wilfried Zaha; Robin Van Persie.
