Lukaku praised on United debut as Red Devils thrash LA

Rashford scored his second after 21 minutes, again benefitting from an interception. Mourinho named a different line-up in each half, with Marouane Fellaini complementing a Rashford brace in the first period before Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial scored in a 5-2 friendly win. I thank the Galaxy players for the competition for us'.

A high press led to Jesse Lingard winning the ball on the left and his toe poke released Rashford, who had time and space to place a finish into the bottom corner.

"We have never thought about it because he is such an important player for his club, of great economic power", Mourinho said.

If that decision is to stay and for us to wait until December, maybe, because I don't think he can be back in competitive football before December, then why not wait for such a good player that gave us so much? He played like us: two teams, let's play. United finished the first half with 13 shots, while Galaxy, watched by former player David Beckham, had none.

Goalkeeper Brian Rowe, defenders Dave Romney, Jelle Van Damme, Ashley Cole, midfielders Joao Pedro, Emmanuel Boateng and Giovani dos Santos and forward Jack McBean entered the game to start the second half.

Jose Mourinho said that this would be Rashford's season coming up. What I said today is what I say today.

We'll update this post with team news once the starting line-ups are announced.

United have been in talks with Inter Milan over Ivan Peresic since the start of the transfer window, however the Red Devils do not seem to want to meet the asking price of £48 million.

New striker Lukaku was unable to get in on the goals after a 45-minute debut in the second half.

Manchester United's next match is on Monday evening (3am Tuesday in the UK) against Real Salt Lake. The 22-year-old France midfielder has been the subject of a long drawn pursuit all summer, and has now signed for the Premier League champions on a five year deal, a move that is sure to hasten the Serbian midfielder, Matic away from West London. The pace when he builds up a head of steam instantly turns defence into attack and may cure United of some of the stodgy approach play which hampered them too frequently last season.
