(Sporting Alert) — Manchester United have opted to mix youth with senior players for tonight’s game against Kitchee FC at the Hong Kong Stadium.
David Moyes has decided to leave the likes of Ryan Giggs, Robin van Persie and Rio Ferdinand on the bench, with Ashley Young, Wilfried Zaha, Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick amongst the starters.
Ben Amos gets his second start in goal on these tour, while Chris Smalling and Michael Keane play as the center back tonight.
Fabio will start at the right back with Patrice Evra playing on the other side.
