In another of several glamorous ties in the International Champions Cup this week, Manchester United will play Spanish giants Barcelona in Maryland, USA.
New signing Romelu Lukaku has already scored for the Red Devils, both against Real Salt Lake and Manchester City.
However, United must consider their opponent’s attacking prowess as much as their own, with Neymar, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi all in the Barcelona squad.
To compound things Jose Mourinho could be without Ander Herrera who picked up an injury during their penalty shootout against Real Madrid on Sunday – and without him to protect the back four, United are vulnerable.

Neymar, who is rumoured to be leaving the Nou Camp, bagged a brace on Saturday as Barca beat Italian champions Juventus 2-1.
With both teams having enjoyed fruitful pre-seasons on the pitch so far, it would be a hard decision to call a winner, were it not for the abundance of glamourous talent possessed by the Spanish side.
I think it could turn out to be a bit of a walk in the park for Ernesto Valverde’s team, perhaps to the embarrassment of Manchester United.
