Manchester United face off against Wrexham in what is their second game of the United States pre-season tour on Tuesday night.

United have been in excellent preseason form, defeating Leeds United and Lyon in back-to-back games in Oslo and Edinburgh before departing for their tour of the United States.

In addition, the Red Devils defeated Arsenal 2-0 on Saturday night in New Jersey thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho. The first team will next play on Wednesday night against Real Madrid in Texas.

In fact, the match against Wrexham will provide a number of young players a chance to experience first-team action, as an academy team is expected to play, and the Red Devils will then follow the match against Real Madrid with their final exhibition of the tour on July 30 against Borussia Dortmund.

Team News

Charlie McNeill was not included in the Man United first team group that flew to the United States, but he will play for the Red Devils in this match as a member of the academy side.

Jonny Evans, the experienced centre-back who has been signed on a short-term contract with the intention of keeping his fitness, is also expected to line up at the heart of the defence against the Welsh team on Tuesday night.

Although they were members of the first team in the first few friendlies, Alvaro Fernandez, Dan Gore, and Omari Forson are largely anticipated to play in the match against Wrexham.

There’s a possibility that the first-team squad’s bench players, including Marc Jurado, Isak Hansen-Aaroen, Shola Shoretire, and Noam Emeran, will also play a role.

The rest of the first team players will be in preparation for the game against Real Madrid on Wednesday night. In terms of that game, Andre Onana is expected to feature for the first time ever as a Manchester United player and Anthony Martial is also expected to be included in the starting lineup.

The fixture at the Snapdragon Stadium, which is located on the campus of San Diego State University at SDSU Mission Valley – will be played on 26 July at 03:30 BST.
