Manchester United began their pre-season tour of Australia on Friday with a 4-1 victory over Melbourne Victory.

United would go on to dominate possession but struggle to create clear chances until the 43rd minute, when Scott McTominay's deflected effort looped over Victory goalkeeper Paul Izzo.

Just minutes later, Anthony Martial received another assist after the ball broke to him just metres from goal.

After the break, new Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag made ten changes, with Marcus Rashford leading the way with his third goal in the 78th minute.

Victory missed a few chances to score a second goal and eventually conceded an own goal in the dying minutes after some nice play from Tahith Chong.

Among the many changes made by Ten Hag at halftime, the introduction of Zidane Iqbal was one of the most welcome.

The 19-year-old was electric in the second half, commanding the ball and producing more often than not.
