Manchester United face up against Arsenal in New York for the opening pre-season fixture of their United States tour this summer.
This encounter will however include the international players who were gifted with an extra two weeks of holiday following inclusions with their national sides last month.
Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and co will be back in action, with the Portuguese star likely to don the armband for the first time since being officially announced as club captain.
It is likely that players who has already been involved in games could play up to 60 minutes on Saturday, whilst the returning players are expected to play 45 minute cameos.
One other player that could be involved is new signing Andre Onana, who was officially announced as United’s new goalkeeper on Thursday. He later travelled from Manchester to New York and will meet his new teammates for training on Friday.
Whether or not he does make his debut with just one session under his belt is yet to be confirmed by the club. If he misses out, Onana won’t have to wait long to take to the pitch as a United player, with a game against Real Madrid coming just five days after the Arsenal clash.
Fred has been left out of the squad due to personal reasons, whilst Tyrell Malacia and Rhys Bennett have both picked up injuries and therefore are not included for the tour. Several other young players have been left out of the squad for the games against Arsenal, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund; however could play against Wrexham.
The full 31-man squad (soon to be 32 with Onana) can be viewed here.
Donny van de Beek returned to the pitch against Lyon after six months sidelined. The Dutchman produced an impressive performance topped off with a well-taken goal to win the game.
Anthony Martial has also been recovering from an injury that kept him out of the FA Cup final loss against Manchester City at the end of last season. He has been pictured in team training and could make an appearance.
United face Arsenal in the iconic MeLife Stadium in New Jersey at 22:00 BST. The Gunners were valiant challengers to Manchester City for the Premier League title last term but fell off in the final stages of the season.
