Younger Utd players impressJuly 18, 2019
Impressive performances for Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford, Angel Gomes, Talith Chong the youngsters in the Manchester United squad in the friendly against Leeds Utd in Australia.
At 4-0, Manchester United could not ask for more in the pre-season. They are proclaimed the Champs of Australia after winning both friendlies.
Leeds were rolled over by two different sides of the same team with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer completely rotating his side at half-time.
Two goals in each half got United the win.
Rashford scored a briliant goal, hit the post once and Daniel James too hit the post in a match where Leeds showed some quality.
But it was nothing compared to the old encounters between the two great sides in the league.
Greenwood, Anthony Martial (penalty) and Phil Jones scored for United.
Not to forget that Paul Pogba was impressive and new boy Aaron Wan-Bissaka was impactful.
With James and Bissaka, the team looks sharp in attack and constant in defence.
But the real pre-season test is in Singapore where the clud fights it out in a friendly against AC Milan.
AC Milan will possibly make an offer to Manchester United to snap its centre-back Eric Bailly, according to reports.
The Serie A giants are looking for a new defender and they think Bailly is a good bet.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he will trim his squad once he lands Harry Maguire from Leicester City.
Bailly is one of the players on the list. He failed to live up to the hype following his £34m move from Villarreal in 2016, making just 18 appearances last season and only five under Solskjaer.
