Manchester United take on Seattle Sounders in Game 2 of their pre-season American tour tomorrow evening. The Sounders are sterner opposition than the New England Revolution so it will be good to see how far the team has gone ahead of the big kick-off next month.

Whilst in Seattle, the lads have been joined by new signings David De Gea and Phil Jones whilst Tom Cleverly and Danny Welbeck also linked up with the squad. We're however more likely to see them in the third game.

That we have more or less pulled out of landing Wesely Sneijder or any other attacking or defensive midfielder means that we need somebody in the team to step up if only to give cover to whoever the manager will bring in to fill the Scholes void. Its why I'll be taking a closer look at the players especially as the games get harder.
