KXIP vs KKR Live Score

United have struggled to impress in pre-season with a patchy squad that has been depleted through injuries and key players resting after the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Jose Mourinho has revealed Manchester United players will cut off their holiday in order to link up with the rest of the squad ahead of the new season. "I know what Herrera, Mata and Sanchez is, I know what they are".

"Maybe it is a step for me to know the players more than anything".

United could bring Zidane to the club on a free after he walked out on Real Madrid having secured his third consecutive Champions League title.

He also recently had a rant about the quality of some of United's youth players who were part of the club's pre-season tour of the USA while a few of the club's first team stars are still on holiday. What I don't agree with is that the Premier League starts now.

Romelu Lukaku has returned from his post-World Cup break.

Fred made his first start for Man Utd since joining the club in a £52m move from Shakhtar Donetsk earlier in the summer and the Brazilian midfielder impressed in the middle of the park. "I know the kids need time to grow up", Mourinho said.

Bale curled wide soon after but just before the interval, Benzema tapped in an excellent Theo Hernandez cross to give the vast amounts of Madrid fans in Miami something to cheer.

Mourinho has a history of targeting specific players on occasion and Ivorian central defender Eric Bailly has been in his firing line in the United States.

Martial's future with the club was already in question prior to this situation, having seen his playing time drop after Jose Mourinho took over for Louis Van Gaal following the 2015-16 season.
