Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the United squad, despite the speculation surrounding his future at the club, with the Portugal international having not yet featured in preseason since telling the club he wants to leave.

Man United vs. Rayo Vallecano lineups

Ten Hag will make a late call on whether to include Ronaldo in his starting XI, but the demands of two games within 24 hours could force a reshuffle, with changes expected.

With most of the senior players having faced Atletico in Oslo on Saturday, Ten Hag is expected to field a very different lineup. Lisandro Martinez could be handed a start, while youngsters included Zidane Iqbal are likely to feature.

Manchester United projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Heaton (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Martinez, Williams — Savage, Iqbal — Chong, Mejbri, Diallo — Ronaldo

Rayo boss Andoni Iraola has a fully fit squad to pick from ahead of their trip to Manchester with former United duo baby and Radamel Falcao both expected to start.

Rayo Vallecano projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Zidane (GK) — Garcia, Saveljich, Catena, Balliu — Suarez, Comesana — Bebe, Trejo, Palazon — Falcao
