Starting XI: Leicester City v Manchester United – FA Community Shield

Manchester United face Leicester City to contest the FA Community Shield at Wembley this afternoon. The Premier League champions versus the Emirates FA Cup winners. United have had a dreadful three years since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson and with Jose Mourinho now at the helm, the confidence is coming back, the opposition supporters are talking about United again, which means the fear factor is returning. United are about to spend around £100 million on Paul Pogba, who has been given permission by Juventus to undergo a medical with his former club. United could have the strongest squad they have had in years – which could return them to the summit of English football. It may not happen immediately as Mourinho has to eradicate Louis van Gaal’s philosophy from the squad, which may take time. Today could see United reign supreme at Wembley for the third time this year, to beat the Premier League champions and getting ready for the season proper a week from today with United facing Bournemouth away from home. Here are the starting XI’s and list of substitutes for each team this afternoon.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw;

Carrick, Fellaini;

Lingard, Rooney, Martial;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Rojo; Mata, Herrera, Mkhitaryan, Schneiderlin; Rashford
