Manchester United vs Tottenham - Competition: English Premier League  

Manchester United team enjoyed a decent pre-season campaign. Van Gaal's men lost their last warm-up match 2-0 to Paris Saint-Germain but they have won all other three friendlies (including a 3-1 win over Barcelona).
Robin van Persie, Di Maria and Falcao have left the club has enjoyed arguably the strongest summer transfer-window of any side in the English top-flight. New signings Bastian Schweinsteiger, Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian and Morgan Schneiderlin are all likley to start. Daley Blind will play at the centre of defence while Rooney will lead the line. David De Gea will not play as he is in the process to move to Real Madrid while Marcos Rojo is unlikely to feature having returned late to pre-season from Copa America duty.
Tottenham were thoroughly unimpressive in pre-season, losing against both the MLS All Stars and Real Madrid, They finally won their 2nd Audi Cup match against Milan, courtesy of Chadli and Carroll's goal. The man to watch will be Kane. The 22 year-old scored 21 goals in the English Premier League last season and 31 in all competitions.
Tottenham have sold Younes Kaboul, Vlad Chiriches, Etienne Capoue, Benjamin Stambouli and Paulinho this summer and look seriously light in midfield and up-front. Toby Alderweireld will be the only new signing to start the match while Dembelè, Eriksen and Chadli will support Harry Kane up-front. Midfield trio Ryan Mason, Andros Townsend and Alex Pritchard are unlikely to make the trip
These two teams last met in March when United produced one of their best displays of the season to win 3-0 with first-half goals from Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney. Anyway, Spurs were unbeaten in 5 against the Red Devils before losing in March.

Probable lineups:
Manchester United: de Gea – Jones, Smalling, Blind – Valencia, Schneiderlin, Herrera, Young – Mata, Rooney, Depay.
Tottenham: Lloris – Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose – Bentaleb, Mason – Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli – Kane.
