New signings Mohamed Diame and Ciaran Clark won't be involved against Fulham tomorrow night.

The pair signed this week from Hull City and Aston Villa respectively.

But midfielder Diame and defender Clark are not in Rafa Benitez's squad for the Championship opener at Craven Cottage.

However, defender Chancel Mbemba – who missed last weekend's game against Vitesse Arnhem with an ankle problem – is expected to travel to London for the game.

The only other player unavailable to United manager Rafa Benitez is forward Siem de Jong (hamstring).
