Manchester United return to the field after a long summer holiday. Some players were involved with their countries while others were just enjoying quality time off the pitch. The boys are back in training and as of writing this article, we have two signings in Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The game against Perth Glory is an opportunity for us to see what Ole Gunner’s team will be made up of.
Teams: Perth Glory vs Manchester United
KO: 13th July 2019 12:00pm GMT
Location: Optus Stadium
Managers: Tony Popovic and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Manchester United are without Sanchez who is on holiday, Darmian and Fred are away due to family issues. There are concerns about the fitness of Lukaku and Martial. Other than that, we expect that the rest of the boys will be available for selection. Perth Glory have a few injury concerns ahead of the match, with Chris Ikonomidis, Alex Grant and Dane Ingham out, while Dino Djulbic is still nursing an ACL injury he suffered in the A-League Grand Final. Andy Keogh and Diego Castro are also absent. Manchester United and Perth Glory have not played against each other ever. So there is no head to head record.

I expect Manchester United to win this game although I do not expect Perth Glory to be a walk over. I will go for a 4-0 win in favour of Manchester United
