Memphis Depay is set to lead the line for Manchester United as manager Jose Mourinho makes a total of four changes to the side that squared off against Wigan on the 16th of July.


Manchester United are set to take on Bundesliga heavyweights Borussia Dortmund in the first game of the International Champions Cup in Shanghai. Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho has made a few tweaks to the side that beat Wigan.

Ecuador international Antonio Valenica comes into the side, replacing youngster Timothy Fosu-Mensah at right-back. Daley Blind, who played as centre-half last week, has been deployed in a holding midfield position, partnering Ander Herrera. Juan Mata makes his way into the team and could be played in the hole behind the striker Memphis Depay. Two first team regulars Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney miss out, while star signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and veteran Bastian Schweinsteiger will be unavailable for the entirety of the tour.

For Borussia Dortmund, new signing Ousmane Dembele leads the line alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Former Red Devil Shinji Kagawa is expected to play behind the two front men. Roman Weidenfeller starts in goal, with a four-man defence ahead of him. The key absentees for the German side are captain Marco Reus and new arrivals Mario Gotze and Raphael Guerreiro. Also missing out are Julian Weigl, Lukasz Piszczek, and Jakub Blaszczykowski.
