Romelu Lukaku shines as Manchester United defeat Real Salt Lake 2-1

The Portuguese said: "You come with a mentality of a friendly match and in the end you find yourself in a different mentality". Don't be worried about scoring or not scoring.' He gets behind people, works and presses well. Like everything he does. He was elected to the UEFA executive committee 25 years ago, and to FIFA's ruling committee 19 years ago. He's now a top striker and the goal is just a detail. The team will then head back to Europe for games against Valerenga and Sampdoria.

Jesse Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan again looked lively when their team attacked in a 4-3-3 formation as they pressed and darted into space, providing flicks and assists.

The game was not an easy one for the Red Devils as they even saw their man, Antonio Valencia get sent off, with 23 minutes left.

He's been calm and assured in possession, his ball retention - a glaring fault of his game in his formative United years - has visibly been honed during his time in Spain, while he also developed a taste for tackling last season too - winning 44 per cent of his duels. If nothing else, it was a novel kind of refereeing.

Midway through the campaign, Mourinho realised the error of his ways - Rashford needed to start.

The prosecutor's office said it also suspects that Padron and the Tenerife secretary "favored the contracting of business" for their personal benefit. "Pre-season has been going really well for us", Lukaku said.

"These are big teams but, to be honest, the most important thing is the European Super Cup".

The Belgium striker joined United from Everton for £75million last Monday, snubbing champions Chelsea to sign a five-year contract at Old Trafford.

"We have many players like Micki [Henrikh Mkhitaryan], Marcus [Rashford] and Anthony [Martial], who are very good in a one-against-one, but we need one like Romelu. I have to make sure I stay focused and have the same ambition I've always had". Romero turned up alone, reliable and unassuming. He didn't let his side down in Stockholm. Valencia was given his marching orders after a lengthy consultation between the match referee and Mourinho.

"There is strength in depth and that's what we need". This is a little bit noteworthy as Lukaku had failed to score in his debut against LA Galaxy a couple of days earlier, and received some more criticisms.

Speculation about De Gea's future at United ebbs and flows.
