Manchester United can build two new players untouched against Inter Milan this weekend – Richard Fay

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope to make three wins from three when his team faces Inter Milan in Singapore this Saturday.

United have been impressed with comfortable wins against Perth Glory and Leeds but are now expected to face a tougher test when they take on the Italian side at the National Stadium.

The Norwegian manager is running out of time to finish his best starting XI for the Premier League opening match against Chelsea next month and can make a big statement with his team's election this weekend.

The following are the main talking points ahead of United's third fixture on the 2019 pre-season tour.

United can build two untouchables

Solskjaer has set a 4-3-3 formation in pre-season and chances are that United will adopt such an approach when they start the Premier League against Chelsea next month.

The key to this arrangement is United's front line and against Inter Milan they will probably face the most difficult preseason test.

Daniel James, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford all seem impressive, but against the back line that could include Milan Skriniar and Diego Godin, they will undergo a whole new test.

If they manage to show their talent against the Serie A team then James and Greenwood may have done enough to strengthen their position in the starting line-up, and in turn face Chelsea on the opening day of next month.

What role will Fred have?

A year after his arrival at Old Trafford and the Brazilian he has not yet determined the desired position in the United squad.

Although signed by Jose Mourinho, under Solskjaer Fred has enjoyed his best football by wearing a United uniform.

After joining the late squad, he will only get a small share this weekend but it will be interesting to see where in the midfield he is placed.

Angel Gomes, Andreas Pereira and Juan Mata have all moved in front of him in attacking roles, so the former Shakhtar player might have the best chance to impress at the base of the three-player arrangement.

The toughest test

Not only is United in a difficult contest on the pitch, but the heat of Singapore is set to make this the most tiring meeting.

The temperature will be more than 30 degrees, while high humidity will make it feel warmer than the pitch.

United are wise to start in a city like Perth, which allows them to enter a comfortable training track. However, their new fitness regime is set to be thoroughly tested this weekend.

The fight for the defensive midfield role

Solskjaer's name checked Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira as competitors to replace Ander Herrera in the new season, but it was not clear who was in the best position to do so.

Scott & # 39; McSauce & # 39; because he was known to fans for changing his reputation at United, while Pereira might remain superior technically from both.

With no new moves on the deal for the new midfielder this summer both have the opportunity to make their own starting place in the coming weeks, and they both can showcase their talent on Saturday.

United's transfer policy will be tested

A year ago the club was reluctant to move for World Cup star Ivan Perisic, and because of that he still remained at Inter's side.

The former Mourinho manger was a big fan of experienced winger, but one year on it was energetic James who had moved to United.

Solskjaer insisted that Wales International would be & # 39; the top player & # 39; at the club, but whether he can deliver goods immediately is another full question.

It will be interesting to see how Perisic got this weekend, and his appearance on the left must be the first real test for Aaron Wan-Bissaka in United's uniform.
