John O'Shea: “It (competition) has increased from last season and hopefully we are looking to be nowhere near last season’s position and to make sure we are comfortably surviving in the Premier League.
“We hope the new lads settle in very quickly because the start of the season soon comes round.
“We have had 10 to 11 days in Italy before here so we have had a good base built up over there.
“So we are hoping for some very competitive games to look forward to in Hong Kong.
“Tottenham will be a fantastic test. We had a couple of good games against them last season, especially the final match of the season where it was 0-0 until a certain Mr Bale intervened in the last couple of minutes!
“It will be a good test to see where we are fitness-wise but it will be good to get to see some fans out in Hong Kong too.
“We hope to put on a good show for these fans who cannot come over to see the Premier League.”
