Jose Mourinho has rung in plenty of changes for Man United’s game against Borussia Dortmund to kick off the pre-season tour of China.

Antonio Valencia starts as captain at right-back alongside Phil Jones who comes in alongside Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw.

Daley Blind is playing in his natural midfield position alongside Ander Herrera, who was superb against Wigan Athletic, and Juan Mata.

Up front, Henrikh Mkhitaryan starts once again with Jesse Lingard and Memphis Depay which means we might be seeing Memphis play in a striker’s role.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah has not been included in the squad at all, hopefully that is not due to an injury.

Marcus Rashford has also been named on the bench but there is no Wayne Rooney or Chris Smalling – maybe we will get to see Rashford play after all.
