Match Preview

Here are the Preview and live schedule for Manchester United vs Derby County. This match will mark the return of Jesse Lingard.

The Red Devils Start their pre-season Match against Derby County at Pride Park on Sunday 18 July 2021.

A number of players have returned to training for the pre-season match at Carrington on Friday 16 July 2021 local time.

As reported by from, Saturday 17 July 2021, one of the players who returned to training was Jesse Lingard.

Lingard Returns After a brilliant loan spell at West Ham at the end of the period of last season. He managed to score nine goals.

But Lingard was unlucky not to be included in the England squad for Euro 2020.

Now the attacking midfielder has returned to his boyhood club, Man United.

Of course, he will try to show his best performance, like when he won the Premier League Player of the Month award in April 2021.

Apart from Lingard, young midfielder Hannibal Mejbri also enjoyed his first day back at Carrington.

Hannibal previously got his first international call-up with Tunisia.

He made three appearances for the African nation, to open up his chances of breaking into the Man United senior team next season.

The Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would love to have more options available for the pre-season friendly, which kicks off on Sunday, against Derby County at Pride Park.

This match is scheduled to be broadcast live or Live on MUTV at 5:30 p.m. Indian time.

There are a number of young players who will collaborate with senior players to play in this match.

But most likely, Solskjaer will field his senior players against Wayne Rooney's team.

Including playing Jesse Lingard to fill a slot on the front line with Mason Greenwood.

They will be supported by two experienced players Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic in midfield.

In defense, a regular player who has the potential to start is Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The absence of Luke Shaw opened up opportunities for Alex Telles to start at left-back.

In goal, Dean Henderson returned to training this week after a hip injury forced him to miss Euro 2020.

But maybe he wasn't sent off since the early minutes because he was just recovering.

Thus Tom Heaton has the potential to get his first chance after returning to Old Trafford.

In the first match of this pre-season, Man United could not be strengthened by a number of players who defended their respective countries at Euro 2020. They still get rest and longer vacations.
