Game: Milan vs Manchester United
Date: Wednesday, July 25
Time: 03:00am BST / 10:00pm ET
After starting their pre-season with a couple of disappointing draws, Manchester United kick off their International Champions Cup campaign against AC Milan on Wednesday (or on Thursday, for those in the UK). The game takes place at California’s Rose Bowl, hence the pretty terrible kickoff time. Follow along in our live thread here — if you dare.
Manchester United face AC Milan at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California., with kick-off scheduled for 04:05am BST on Thursday, July 26.
It has been a busy summer off the pitch for Milan, complete with a change of ownership and a successful bid to salvage their Europa League berth. And now their attentions can turn to matters on the field, with Mourinho’s United sure to pose a stern challenge in Carson’s StubHub Center.
The Red Devils have taken a weakened squad to the United States, with a host of World Cup stars missing.
The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini, Marcos Rojo and Paul Pogba all stay at home, but Alexis Sanchez is present after resolving visa issues.
Potential Man Utd XI: Romero; Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Shaw; Herrera, McTominay; Alexis, Mata, Gomes; Martial.
Milan have also had to deal with a suspension from the Europa League handed down by UEFA for breaking FFP rules, although the ban has since been shelved; while coach Gattuso and star players Bonucci and Gianluigi Donnarumma could also be moving on before this summer comes to an end.

Manchester United’s pre-season campaign continues state-side with their International Champions Cup clash against AC Milan in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Jose Mourinho’s side are still looking for their first win this summer after drab draws with San Jose Earthquakes and Club America in their opening friendly matches of their tour.
Frustrated with not having his full squad available, the manager has cut a rather glum figure with a dozen players returning late due to World Cup commitments.
United’s pre-season tests don’t get any easier, with clashes against Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich following their meeting with the Rossoneri. A win against the Italian giants might restore something resembling a smile to Mourinho’s face. Maybe.
