Starting XI: Manchester United v Everton – Wayne Rooney’s Testimonial


Manchester United face Everton at Old Trafford for Wayne Rooney’s testimonial – Jose Mourinho’s first match as United manager at Old Trafford. The charities involved tonight will be the real winner’s of the evening, but Manchester United will benefit with another match ahead of the FA Community Shield match against Premier League champions Leicester City at Wembley on Sunday. United have played three matches this pre-season – it should have been four, so far; winning twice and losing once. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan could make their Old Trafford debuts ahead of the season. The night might have been better with Paul Pogba playing a part this evening, but his transfer is so far not complete, tipped to take the saga into next week. Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both teams this evening.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw;

Carrick, Herrera;

Lingard, Rooney (c), Martial;



Johnstone, Romero; Darmian, Jones, Rojo; Fellaini, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Schneiderlin, Young, Memphis; Rashford



Holgate, Stones, Funes Mori;

Coleman, McCarthy, Barry, Baines;

Deulofeu, Barkley;



Joel, Oviedo, Galloway, Gibson, Cleverley, Besic, Davies, Kone, Mirallas, Lennon
