Manchester United academy product 18-year old Garner playing only his second game for the club impressed when he intercepted possession and fired a superb volley into the bottom corner to give him his maiden goal with United.

Among the ten changes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made for the match were new acquisitions Dan James and Wan-Bissaka. James, who joined from Swansea for £18 million last month, showed lot of promise with his speed along the wings and has already impressed fans. So did £50 million signing Wan-Bissaka, making his first appearance in a United shirt.

Despite the friendly nature of the Perth clash, the 21-year old right-back's “take no prisoners approach” saw him crunching in several fantastic challenges and it was immediately evident why Wan-Bissaka completed more successful tackles than any other player in the Premier League last season.

There was consternation among United followers as to how the controversial Paul Pogba may behave in his first match after he professed wanting to leave the club on more than one occasion.

But it was his flick which created the first goal, a cracking left-footed strike from Rashford in the 60th minute.

Chelsea under new boss and club legend Frank Lampard commenced the pre-season on a tepid note, drawing 1-1 with Irish Premier League Club, Bohemians at Dalymount Park in Dublin.

Lampard went with youngsters Marc Guehi, Conor Gallagher, Ethan Ampadu, Kasey Palmer and Dujon Sterling, giving them the required exposure by playing them alongside experienced folks such as Cesar Azpilicueta, Willy Caballero and Danny Drinkwater.

Chelsea took the lead when Michy Batshuayi back from his loan spell with Crystal Palace fired in a scrappy goal in the 8th minute. But the Blues' advantage was negated in the dying minutes of the game by an 89th minute strike from Eric Molloy.

To make up for the mediocre show with the Bohemians, Chelsea looked much more clinical in their whitewashing of St Patrick's Athletic 4-0.

20-year old Mason Mount, previously on loan to Derby County, opened the score in the 14th minute. Jorginho, David Luiz and Mateo Kovacic were all given minutes of playing time, but it was left-back Emerson who fired in the second in the 31st while Olivier Giroud accounted for the remaining two in the 67th and 88th minutes.

Coming on the back of a brace of goals scored in Liverpool's 6-0 thrashing of Tranmere, nineteen-year old Rhian Brewster added one more to his name against Bradford to give his side a 3-1 win this weekend.

James Milner scored the other two with the goals for the Reds coming in the 13th and 15th minute.

Manchester City finally boarded the flight to China for their summer tour on Monday morning following a two-day wait due to an “administrative error” that Thomas Cook Sport blamed on third parties.

City had been scheduled to fly Shanghai early on Saturday, but this was postponed at the last moment. While City are unhappy with Thomas Cook Sport, the travel company played down any kind of oversight.

Pep Guardiola's Citizens get ready to play a semi-final fixture of the Premier League Asia trophy against West Ham United at the Hongkou Football Stadium in Shanghai.

Guardiola is likely to field teenage novices like Ian Poveda, Luke Bolton, Lukas Nmecha and Adrian Bernabe and that too in upfront roles.

The Premier League Asia Trophy will incidentally will feature two more English clubs in the form of Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) and Newcastle.
