The Red Devils are placed fifth in the Premier League standings with 26 points from 14 games. They are just three points shy of fourth-placed Tottenham.
Manchester United will be hoping to begin their mid-season friendlies on a positive note when they take on Spanish side Cadiz. The Wednesday night contest will be all about bringing the fitness level of the players up following an unusual break at this point of the season. It is happening due to the World Cup happening in Qatar in the winter rather than the summer. As a result, club football has come to a stop for the time being. This will give Erik ten Hag the opportunity to regroup his players and go all out for a possible top-four finish in the second half of the campaign.
