Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will face off in the first Manchester derby of the season on Thursday in Houston.

The match between Manchester United and Manchester City, at the NRG Stadium in Houston, will be the first ever Manchester derby to be played outside the United Kingdom.

Mourinho is likely to give new signings Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku a run out, while Bernardo Silva, Ederson and Kyle Walker may get a run out for Guardiola's team.

United's in-house channel MUTV will be providing coverage of the game live on television, as well as on it's website here. The match kicks off at 2.30 a.m. (BST) and 8.30 p.m. local time.

In the United States, ESPN holds the rights for the International Champions Cup, and will also be providing coverage online here.

Lukaku scored his first goal for Manchester United earlier in the week, after joining United after snubbing a return to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea.

Antonio Conte 's team is on the verge of signing Alvaro Morata, the Real Madrid striker—subject to a medical—as the the Spaniard's prospective deal to join United broke down earlier in the summer.

"I'm not interested in what Chelsea FC does," Mourinho said, as quoted by the BBC. "It was obvious they were going to sign a striker after the situation with the manager and Diego [Costa]."

Chelsea manager Conte reportedly told Costa, the team's top scorer last season, that he was not in his future plans at Stamford Bridge.
