With just four days to go before meeting champions Leicester City in the Charity Shield at Wembley, Jose Mourinho has opted for a near full strength XI to face Everton in Wayne Rooney’s testimonial at Old Trafford. (KO 8.0)
United have played just three pre seasons games and, as such, with the Premier League opener against Bournemouth looming, Mourinho cannot afford to pass up any opportunity to hone his players’ sharpness.
After 12 gilded years at Old Trafford, Rooney, aged just 30, will line out for his testimonial against boyhood club Everton.
Rooney has been selected alongside Zlatan Ibrahimović , Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard in the final third.
Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick are in midfield, in front of a back four of Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Daley Blind and Luke Shaw. David de Gea will take his place between the posts.
