Manchester United’s last 10 tour openers ahead of Tour 2022


2017: LA Galaxy 5-2

It rained goals in California, with Rashford taking just two minutes to get the ball rolling. Mata set up Rashford for his second before Marouane Fellaini converted a pass by Jesse Lingard. United manager Jose Mourinho made 11 changes at the break but the dominance continued, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial nudging the scoreline up to 5-0. Giovani dos Santos pulled a couple of goals back for the local side.

2016: Borussia Dortmund 1-4

Mkhitaryan’s goal against his former employers was the only bright spot as the Reds suffered a heavy defeat to the Bundesliga outfit, in an International Champions Cup clash in Shanghai. Gonzalo Castro and a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty handed the Germans a 2-0 lead at the interval, before Ousmane Dembele added a third. Mkhitaryan quickly replied, only for Castro to net again with four minutes remaining.

2015: Club America 1-0

Morgan Schneiderlin would only register one competitive goal for the Reds but he took just five minutes of his friendly debut to steer in a header from a Mata cross. It proved to be the end of the scoring for Louis van Gaal’s men on the day, with Ander Herrera and Adnan Januzaj going the closest to extending our lead over the Mexicans in Seattle.
