Erik ten Hag will speak to the media today ahead of Manchester United's second pre-season friendly against Melbourne Victory.


The Dutchman couldn't have hoped for a better start to life in charge at Old Trafford as he saw his new side sweep away Liverpool in Thailand on Tuesday, running out 4-0 winners thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho, Fred, Anthony Martial and Facundo Pellistri.


Now United have moved on to the second leg of their tour for Australia, where they will face Victory before coming up against more Premier League opposition in Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.


Ten Hag will hold his pre-match press conference at 3.45am BST on Thursday morning and there could be updates on Harry Maguire and James Garner who missed the Liverpool win due to minor injuries.


The manager is also likely to be asked about the latest on the transfer front, with United set to make a fresh bid for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.


Ten Hag issues Maguire update

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that captain Harry Maguire is available for Friday's pre-season friendly against Melbourne Victory at Melbourne Cricket ground.


The centre-back, who will continue as United's captain this season, missed Tuesday's 4-0 win over Liverpool in Thailand because of a minor knock. He trained away from the main group in the build-up to the contest on Monday and was not risked against Jurgen Klopp's side.


In his absence, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof started at centre-back, before being replaced at half-time by Eric Bailly and Alex Telles, as Ten Hag made mass changes at the interval. Bailly impressed after coming off the bench, meaning he could bag himself a starting berth against Melbourne.

That's a wrap!

That is everything from Erik ten Hag and Marcus Rashford. We will have plenty of reaction to come on the MEN website.



Ten Hag on United's wide options

"I was really happy to see [it]. As you saw against Liverpool, we had a good threat on the right side, as well as the left. We want to develop over two sides, also in the middle."

Rashford on his confidence after last season's struggles

"I think, for me, it is a lot easier to make mistakes in a team that is winning. Like in the last game against Liverpool, the result allowed me to address my mistakes. We are all sportsmen and we have to try our best to win the next game. It is a big club that we play for and we are expected to win, as we should do. The first game of the new season is the first opportunity that we have. We have to do what we can in pre-season in order to give everything in the first game [against Brighton]."

Rashford on his pre-season so far

"I had a long break in the summer, physically and mentally. A new season is a new opportunity and I am using it to refocus. This is my first year where I have been with the team from the beginning and I feel a lot better. It is important for me to get a fresh start and I feel ready."

Ten Hag on Van de Beek's best role

"He can do both [play deep and high], I know that from the past. His best position is in the box of the opponent and playing just behind the striker. He has a really good smell for being in the right position.

Rashford on pre-season so far

"For me, it is a fresh start and something that I am looking forward to. We have worked hard in the first two weeks of training and we are a lot fitter than last season."

Ten Hag on youth

"I said before, already, that I think Manchester United has huge potential and good players. We have experienced players and a lot of young guys with potential, so we have to work very hard. Manchester United are famous about it. Marcus Rashford is an example of it. We need to work hard with the academy.

More from Rashford on facing Melbourne

"We spoke a little bit about it before and it is going to be a massive opportunity for us. Also, performing in front of fans that we don't get the chance to during the season is exciting for us."

Rashford on facing Melbourne

"It is not often that we get the chance to play against teams from Australia. It is exciting for us and we have to approach the game with the right mindset."

Ten Hag on how he wants his team to press

"We want to press all day with proactive football. We want to press high, but if we can't, we will press lower. It has to be intensive all day."

Ten Hag on how he wants his team to play

"I want in every part of the team - a proactive team and that is important. I want the players to take inative in the defensive and offensive."

Ten Hag issues Maguire injury update

"Yes, he is available. He can play half a game."

Ten Hag on facing Melbourne

"We are happy with that game because it is a different opposition and it is always good to play against a different culture. It will be a different approach from against Liverpool, Villa and Palace. Melbourne are different. They are a good team and it will be a good test. We are looking forward to it."

Ten Hag on the importance of friendlies

"It is pre-season, but you play to win. It is always important. But we also need to develop the team over pre-season."

Ten Hag and Rashford are here

The duo have now arrived in the press conference room and we're just about ready to get this show on the road. Updates to come.


A small delay

We are still awaiting Erik ten Hag's and Marcus Rashford's arrivals. Hopefully they will be us shortly.

Malacia explains what Ten Hag wants from him at United

Tyrell Malacia is confident he can become Manchester United's first-choice left-back under Erik ten Hag.


Malacia, 22, became Ten Hag's first signing in a £14.6million move from Feyenoord earlier this month and came on for his first appearance as a second-half substitute in United's 4-0 thrashing of Liverpool in Bangkok on Tuesday night.


Luke Shaw started at left-back but Malacia has already leapfrogged Alex Telles, who played as an auxiliary centre-back in the second-half.

United get Martinez transfer boost

Manchester United are set to make a new bid for Ajax central defender Lisandro Martinez, after seeing a £37million offer knocked back.


Ajax are holding out for around £46million for the 24-year-old and United are now expected to return with a fresh bid that could see a deal struck between the two teams. Ajax are also believed to be preparing for Martinez's departure.


Sources say chief executive Richard Arnold and football director John Murtough are "inter-railing around Europe" in an attempt to conclude signings. Arnold and Murtough were filmed in Barcelona earlier this week, where they met club officials about the protracted signing of midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
