Team news

Erik Ten Hag is expected to ring the changes for the visit of the LaLiga side, with the 1-0 defeat by Atletico Madrid just 24 hours earlier.

Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen could get their first run-outs in front of the Stretford End after being announced as United players.

And Cristiano Ronaldo is making his first appearance this pre-season in the mouth-watering friendly.

    Bounce back season.

    It is two games in two days for Manchester United, with them also playing Atletico Madrid yesterday, and losing 1-0 at the death.

    They actually played really well for most of the game, and probably should have had the lead, but could not finish their chances.

    Atletico made a whole load of changes at about the 60 minute mark, and turned the game on it's head with superstars like Joao Felix and Antoinne Griezmann.

    They took the game by the scruff of the neck, and it was Felix who hit home in the 89th minute to break United hearts.

    Ten Hag's men will need to bounce back with a positive result today, as they won't want to go into the Brighton game on the back of a defeat.

    The king returns.

    A key talking point of this summer transfer window has been Cristiano Ronaldo, and whether he will stay at Manchester United.

    The Portuguese superstar wants to play Champions League football, but has struggled to find a suitor that can offer it to him.

    However, on Sunday he announced on social media that "The king plays on Sunday." The king obviously being himself.

    So it is unclear yet whether he will start and play the full 90 minutes, or if he will be a sub, but he will play some part in the game today.

    We look forward to seeing how he gets on…

    Welcome to Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid!

    Hello! Welcome to SunSport's coverage of Manchester United vs Rayo Vallecano!

    This is Man Utd's final game of pre-season which takes place at Old Trafford before the opening game of the Premier League season next weekend.

    This afternoon they come up against Rayo Vallecano, who will pose a bit less of a threat than previous opponents Atletico Madrid on paper.

    Against Madrid, it was a real game of two halfs, as United looked utterly brilliant for the first 45, and then Joao Felix' introduction changed the game for Los Rojiblancos.

    Today we would expect United to be on their A game, as they don't have long to prepare for the opening day where they face Brighton.

    The fans in Norway yesterday got a glimpse of what Christian Eriksen can do in a United shirt, and will be hoping to see Lisandro Martinez make his debut today.
