Alan Pardew will assess his options ahead of the televised game.

Versatile defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa can play at left back, while 21-year-old Paul Dummett is pushing for his Premier League debut.

Whoever gets the nod will face an unenviable challenge given the pace and ability of Navas, signed from Sevilla in a £15m deal this summer.

United’s other left-back, 20-year-old Massadio Haidara, hasn’t featured during pre-season because of a niggling injury.
