New signings Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez won’t meet up with the squad until next week, while Cristiano Ronaldo remains absent as his future continues to draw speculation.

Axel Tuanzebe left the group last week due to a ‘small personal issue’ and was replaced by Will Fish, with Phil Jones and Brandon Williams not making the journey out to Australia.

Ten Hag also gave another indication of which current players he’s not keen on, when he failed to give Aaron Wan-Bissaka minutes on Friday, instead opting to play youth-team right-back Ethan Laird in the second half.
