The Red Devils will endeavour to build on a steady period of progression under Erik ten Hag, while the Whites prepare for life back in the Championship after a dismal 2022-23.


Man Utd XI vs. Leeds: Heaton; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martínez, Fernandez; Mainoo, Hannibal; Mount, Forson, Sancho; Amad.

Manchester United 2 vs Leeds 0
A perfect start to the pre-season


Arsenal today play their first official friendly of the summer as a visit to Nurnberg caps their pre-season training camp in Germany.

After a behind-closed-doors draw with Watford last week, Mikel Arteta has his full squad available to him for what has become a bit of a traditional trip.

Fans will be hoping to see Kai Havertz pull on his new shirt for the first time, though there will be no sightings of Declan Rice or Jurrien Timber as they have still not finalised their arrivals.



:england: Arsenal XI for today’s match vs Nurnberg:

Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Partey, Trossard, Odegaard; Saka, Nelson, Nketiah.


Bukayo Saka scores seven minutes into Arsenal’s first preseason game.

Kai Havertz gets a warm welcome for his first Arsenal game :eyes::red_circle:


Full time - Nurnberg 1-1 Arsenal

Arsenal’s first official friendly of the summer ends in a stalemate.

The Gunners dominated possession throughout but couldn’t add to Bukayo Saka’s early opener.

And in a second half of multiple substitutions, Nurnberg hit back in bizarre fashion.

Kanji Okunuki is claiming the equaliser, but Jorginho appeared to be the player who found his own net from 35 yards out after receiving a poor pass from his wayward goalkeeper, Karl Hein.

Both sides had chances to win it with the biggest culprit being Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun.

The striker was all the rage on loan in France last season, but twice miscued in front of an open goal here to leave onlookers questioning the hype.

The Gunners are back with a game against an MLS All-Stars side in the early hours of next Thursday, and then face giants Barcelona and Manchester United while on their US tour.

Then it’s back home for the Emirates Cup, and the opportunity for some pre-season silverware.

Bayern Munich’s pre-season is going well :sweat_smile:


Manchester United vs Lyon

Manchester United are back in pre-season action this week when they face Lyon.

Having beaten Leeds in Norway last week, the Red Devils take to Scotland on Wednesday to meet the French side at Murrayfield.

Mason Mount made his debut in a 2-0 win over the Championship side before the United stars involved in summer internationals return for this friendly.

The match is scheduled for a 2pm BST kick-off on Wednesday, July 19, 2023.



Karlsruher vs Liverpool

Liverpool will play their first of two pre-season friendlies in Germany when they take on second-tier side Karlsruher on Wednesday.
It’s their first stop on a tour which will take them as far as Singapore and as close as Preston, with Jurgen Klopp looking to ramp up preparations for the coming campaign and ensure things get off to a better start this year.
