Manchester United won their first pre-season match under new manager, Louis van Gaal on Thursday morning, winning LA Galaxy 7-0.

Danny Welbeck struck the first goal after nine minutes – a left-footed strike from just inside the area which flew in off the post. Rooney added a second from the penalty spot after Leonardo raised his hand to Antonio Valencia’s cross and a third on the stroke of half time.

Van Gaal made nine substitutions after half time. He left only Fletcher and Herrera remaining after the first half and brought in youngsters – defenders Michael Keane, Tyler Blackett and Reece James.

20-year-old James scored two second half goals while Ashley Young also sealed the win by scoring twice.
