Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire, and Christian Eriksen all performed well for Manchester United against Atletico Madrid.

If Eric ten Haag desired a test of his Manchester United players' Premier League preparation, he undoubtedly had it on Saturday in Oslo.

A team like Atletico Madrid, whose manager Diego Simeone is ferociously ordering his men to contest every ball.

It serves as the perfect barometer for what United may anticipate once the "actual" matches start the following week.

The 1-0 loss on Saturday was as competitive a friendly as you could hope for.

Fred and Scott McTominay appeared to enjoy their on-going conflicts with Yannick Carrasco and Geoffrey Kondogbia.

Anthony Elanga had to exert a lot of effort to stay away from Thomas Lemar and Reinildo Mandava's studs.

Midway through the second half, Christian Eriksen had his first game action in a Manchester United jersey.

And it wasn't until substitute Joao Felix passed off Alvaro Morata to score from inside the box that the game was decided.

Moments before Eriksen and Donny van de Beek were substituted for the Red Devils, Simeone opted for a nine-man replacement, which somewhat lessened the challenge of United's defensive resiliency.

While Saul, midway through the second half, managed to inexplicably miss a fantastic opportunity.

Atletico appeared more focused in improving their defensive alignment than teasing United's.

The Red Devils have had a typically eventful summer, but the new manager will hope to have found some continuity over their preseason games.
