Manchester United vs Lens: Confirmed Starting Lineup & Latest Injury Update



Manchester United XI vs Lens

For today’s friendly matchup between Manchester United and Lens, Erik ten Hag has selected his first-choice starting lineup.

While Aaron Wan-Bissaka is preferred at right-back, Diogo Dalot is partnered with Casemiro in midfield.

Rasmus Hojlund, a £72 million acquisition who has not yet been identified as a United player despite passing a physical on Thursday, is not included in the squad.

Hojlund, 20, will reportedly be introduced at Old Trafford prior to the club’s match against France at noon.

Lens, which finished second in Ligue 1 last season, has been favoured by Erik ten Hag for a strong lineup to open this weekend’s doubleheader of preseason games. On Sunday, Athletic Club will follow in Dublin.

Amad Diallo and Kobbie Mainoo are two players that don’t play due to respective knee and ankle ailments that will keep them out of action for at least the first few weeks of the season. Anthony Martial and Tyrell Malacia are also not available.

Man Utd: Onana; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Mount; Antony, Fernandes, Garnacho; Rashford

Subs: Heaton, Kovar, Lindelof, Maguire, Wan-Bissaka, Eriksen, Hannibal, Pellistri, Sancho, Van de Beek, Forson
