Credir: Manchester United

Manchester United have travelled without four first-team players as Erik ten Hag leads his team to Oslo to face Leeds United.

Manchester United will kick off their 2023 pre-season with a fixture against old rivals and current Championship club Leeds United, playing at Ullevaal Stadion in Oslo, Norway.

It will be the first of eight fixtures that Erik ten Hag will embark on, with United facing some of Europe’s finest across the tour.

For the Leeds fixture, Ten Hag will be without any of his players who were part of their national team squads in the last round of international fixtures that took place in June.

These players include Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Casemiro, and Bruno Fernandes, with these players among others due back next week.

Beyond this group, there are also four other first-team players who have not travelled to Oslo, with Dean Henderson, Donny van de Beek, Anthony Martial, and Antony all staying in Manchester.

Martial is still recovering from a hamstring injury sustained against Fulham at the end of May, and Henderson has not played since January 14 when he tore his thigh and had to undergo surgery.

Antony sustained an ankle injury at the beginning of June against Chelsea and missed the last two fixtures of the season, and is set to stay in England as he continues to recover. Van de Beek, who United are open to selling this summer, continues his rehabilitation after he was ruled out for the season in January.

Mason Mount is set to make his unofficial Manchester United debut on Wednesday, as the player has had almost a week of training under his belt and travelled with the rest of the squad on Tuesday afternoon.

That squad contains 18 youth players, with the likes of Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, and Jadon Sancho all travelling.
