Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still has eight players in the lineup who have yet to return to Carrington. Only Aaron Van Bissack and Mason Greenwood have played in the preseason. David de Gea and Dean Henderson have not yet played, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Fred, Paul Pogba, Jaydon Sancho, and Edinson Cavani have not yet returned to training, and Rafael Varan has not yet flown to Manchester to complete his transition from Real Madrid.

Anthony Elenga and Andreas Pereira had excellent games against the Bees, but neither will be able to play against Leeds United on August 14. However, there could be some surprises in the season opener as many players faltered in the preseason. They wouldn't be recommended against Marcelo Bielsa's side, who are still fighting to qualify for the competition. Solskjaer will have to weigh up the quality and fitness of the players to overcome this unique test, but the more players who are fully fit, the better.

It was therefore good news for Diogo Dalot that he played 45 minutes against Brentford, even if he was unable to intercept the routine pass that led to Bryan M'Beimoh's equalizer. The 22-year-old seemed surplus to requirements not long ago, but his performances at AC Milan earned him a call-up to the European Championships and an appearance for Portugal in the tournament. Now he needs to deliver on that performance for United and not make the mistakes that cost him last night.

It was those faults that managed to him being shelved by Solskjaer at the end of the 2019/20 season. The fact that he was substituted for Brendan Williams shows his versatility: last season he played as both a right-back and a left-back for Milan, and fitness issues could give him an unexpected chance at the start of this season.

Alex Teles is already out until September, while Shaw is playing at Euro 2020 due to a broken rib. Dalot could start at left-back against Preston on Saturday, knowing he can come to the fore with a good performance in the early weeks of the season. His immediate future at Eintracht could depend on how he performs against Championship sides.
