Man Utd scored four for a second game in succession as Erik ten Hag’s encouraging pre-season continued

Manchester United scored four goals for a second successive game in pre-season, as they came from behind to beat Melbourne Victory at the MCG.

United hit four without reply against Liverpool in Bangkok last week, but there was to be no clean sheet in their first game in Australia, as a quick counter-attack combined with lax defending from Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw ended with Christopher Ikonomidis turning home.

United were in front by the break though, as Scott McTominay’s deflected equaliser was quickly followed by Anthony Martial’s second goal in as many games.

United made 10 changes at the break, and Marcus Rashford stretched United’s lead with his first goal of the tour. A late own-goal made it 4-1 to the Reds, and their attention now turns to their next game against Crystal Palace, in Melbourne, next week.

Nani enjoyed playing against United

“That was fantastic,” Nani told MUTV. “What a great feeling, it’s amazing when you can feel the warmth from the fans and it’s nice when you come on a field and see some old teammates.

“All the good memories at Man United came into my head, makes me feel like I’m missing old times, but you need to look forward.

“I just want to wish all the success for the new coach, the new team, and I hope the club can get back on the position where they belong and start winning the trophies we are missing so much.
