Manchester United's squad is stretched through injuries and fitness issues with returning World Cup stars heading into their Premier League opener against Leicester.
Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo and Diogo Dalot are out through injury on Friday, as are Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic.
Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini will be assessed after returning late following their World Cup exertions, while Anthony Martial's availability is unclear after missing the final pre-season friendly at Bayern Munich. New boys Lee Grant and Fred are available.
Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire are among a handful of players who are doubts for Leicester ahead of their Premier League opener at Manchester United.
The England stars were given an extended break following their exploits at the World Cup this summer and only rejoined the rest of the Foxes squad this week. Summer signing Jonny Evans, formerly of United, Nampalys Mendy and Demarai Gray (ankle) are also concerns.
New recruits Ricardo Pereira, James Maddison, Danny Ward, Rachid Ghezzal and Filip Benkovic are all expected to be available.
