Predicted XI: Manchester United vs Club America – Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin, Darmian and Depay all start

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea – We never thought we’d be doing this again but…De Gea will start in goal for Manchester United.

Matteo Darmian Very excited to see Darmian play, even if it is only a pre-season friendly.

Chris Smalling With no new centre-backs or Marcos Rojo, Smalling should keep his position. In all honesty, he was probably the first name on the team sheet in this position anyway.

Phil Jones Jones will want to make a statement with a strong performance.

Luke Shaw Equally as excited about Shaw as we are Darmian. Has been working very hard on his fitness.

Morgan Schneiderlin This will take some time getting used to putting Schneiderlin in a predicted XI and not thinking we’re playing a computer game.

Bastian Schweinsteiger We’re still in dream land with this one. Schweinsteiger? In a United shirt? Amazing.

Ander Herrera The Spaniard should thrive off having top quality team-mates around him.

Juan Mata Will be allowed to concentrate on his attacking duties with so much presence in midfield behind him.

Memphis Depay – Can’t wait to see his explosive pace in action.

Wayne Rooney Captain Rooney should have plenty more opportunities to score with the team-mates around him.
