CONFIRMED: Manchester United line-up v AIK

Zaha Palace New2

The defending Premier League champions have announced their first 11 for the friendly with AIK in Stockholm.

One of the shining young stars of Manchester United's pre-season has been Wilfried Zaha and, because of his displays, the thrilling forward has been rewarded with a first-team role against AIK on Tuesday evening, kick-off 18:30.

Competing alongside him is Nani, who has been subject to transfer speculation linking him away from Old Trafford but the Portuguese trickster will be aiming to impress in order to win a regular role in the first XI when the Premier League season begins.

United boss David Moyes will field a strong defence, an experienced midfield and an attack full of skill, technique and swag.

Manchester United's line-up is as follows:

First XI: Lindegaard; Rafael, Evans, Vidic, Evra; Anderson, Carrick, Giggs; Zaha, Van Persie, Nani.

Subs: Amos, Jones, Smalling, Welbeck, Henriquez, Bebe.

What is your prediction? Will it be an easy United victory?
