Head coach Erik ten Hag will not be getting too carried away with the two pre-season successes, but there have been plenty of positive signs, and the fact that the team have managed to score eight goals in Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence will have pleased with the new management team.

“Of course, we have those players like Jordan [Ayew], JP Mateta, [Odsonne] Edouard and Joel Ward, who want to show that they want to be a part of the starting XI. Players always have something to prove and I think they can be guaranteed that we will give United a good game.”
