Manchester United played their final pre-season game of the summer yesterday and drew 1-1 with Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford.
Before the Red Devils take to the Premier League this weekend, we’re looking at which 5 players impressed the most during Man United’s pre-season.
Anthony Martial – had a doomed spell at Sevilla for the second half of last season but he seems to have come back with a point to prove. The Frenchman was also our top-scorer in pre-season and hopefully, he’ll carry that form into the season.
Tyrell Malacia – was United’s first signing this summer and had the benefit of training with the team during pre-season. His performances over the past few games should be a warning to Luke Shaw, as there is a much more athletic, energetic, and hungry player fighting for the left-back spot now.

Eric Bailly – has been at the club for many years now but has failed to either stay fit or be in the manager’s favor to be able to nail down a starting spot for an extended period of time. He put in some brilliant performances during pre-season and hopefully things will turn around for him at the club this season.
Zidane Iqbal – was another player who shone during his limited minutes on United’s Australia tour. He showed glimpses of some real talent that could be honed in the next few years and will be watched closely by the coaches and United.
Fred – is possibly United’s most improved player over the past couple of seasons. He wasted no time in picking up where he left off last season with some marvelous performances. He was full of running in every game he played and his energy in midfield is something Ten Hag would have taken note of.
