Team News  - Man United v Spurs

The first match of the new Premier League season is about to get underway.

With David De Gea’s head not in the right place (dreaming of Madrid presumably) sub keeper Sergio Romero starts in goals for United.

Wayne Rooney plays up front, and will be hoping to give his manager three points as a birthday present.

Current golden boy Harry Kane is tasked with leading the line for the visitors to Old Trafford, up front Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele.

Man Utd: Romero, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Schneiderlin, Carrick, Mata, Depay, Young, Rooney. Subs: Hernandez, Ander Herrera, Valencia, Schweinsteiger, McNair, Andreas Pereira, Johnstone.

Tottenham Hotspur:Vorm, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier, Bentaleb, Chadli, Eriksen, Dembele, Kane. Subs: Lloris, Mason, Lamela, Trippier, Alli, Wimmer, Carroll.

Referee: Jon Moss (W Yorkshire)
