With Nemaja Vidic, Javier Hernández, Nani and Antonio Valencia yet to play for him due to a combination of injury and rest after international duty, Moyes will use the three games before Swansea – the tour matches on Monday with Kitchee FC, and 6 August at AIK plus the Community Shield meeting with Wigan Athletic on 9 August – to finalise his side.
“I’m still getting to know my players. I have several players back home who I’ve not met yet because of international duties,” Moyes said. “I don’t have a starting XI for the Swansea game formulated in my head yet. We still have three games in Europe before the season starts. We’ll look at it then.”
