MANCHESTER UNITED are badly in need of a win to end their awful pre-season run – and they face French side Lens next.

The Red Devils suffered a 3-2 defeat to German giants Borussia Dortmund last time out.

And as a result, it now means that Erik ten Hag's men have lost THREE on the bounce this summer.

However, United will be confident that they can overturn this bad run of form, especially with the advantage of playing at home.

But the English giants cannot afford to get complacent as they are coming up against the runners-up during the 2023 Ligue 1 campaign.

When is Man Utd vs Lens?

  • Manchester United's pre-season friendly against Lens will take place on Saturday, August 5.
  • It is scheduled to get underway at 12:45pm BST.
  • Old Trafford is the allocated arena for this tasty match and it can host approximately 74,310 supporters.
  • This is the first of United's double-header across the weekend as they are set to face Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

Team news

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is yet to decide whether Alejandro Garnacho and Amad Diallo will be fit enough to return to action after missing out on the Borussia Dortmund defeat.

However, Raphael Varane could be back in time to face the club where it all started before he made the switch to Real Madrid.

Furthermore, fans are expected to see Mason Mount and Andre Onana play on home soil for the first time.
