    JS Jordan Street
  2. MUFC Starting XI: Lindegaard, Rafael, Jones, Ferdinand, Evra, Zaha, Cleverley, Carrick, Giggs, Lingard, Welbeck.

    JS Jordan Street
  3. MUFC Subs: De Gea, Anderson, Fabio, van Persie, Keane, Januzaj.

    JS Jordan Street
  4. The teams are on the way out, led by United captain Patrice Evra. Its an 80,000 sellout tonight so the stadium should be rocking!

    JS Jordan Street
  5. Wilfried Zaha makes his full United debut tonight, he plays out on the right wing.

    JS Jordan Street
  6. KICK-OFF: United get the game underway. Lets 'ave it Reds!

    JS Jordan Street
  7. With his first touch of the ball Wilfried Zaha skips past two players with ease. Great to see!

    JS Jordan Street
  8. United are trying to press on early. They win a corner which Ryan Giggs will take.

    JS Jordan Street
  9. CHANCE: Danny Welbeck forces a decent save out of the keeper after some great linkup play between himself and Jesse Lingard.

    JS Jordan Street
  10. CHANCE: Giggs swings in a corner which is met by the head of Patrice Evra, he should've scored!

    JS Jordan Street
  11. Lingard wins possession well in the opposition's final third but Tom Cleverley gives the ball away cheaply.

    JS Jordan Street
  12. GOAL: Jesse Lingard scores after an excellent dummy from Danny Welbeck. 11 Minutes gone.

    JS Jordan Street
  13. CHANCE: A-League All-Stars midfielder Thomas Broich drives from around 20 yards out but the ball flies over.

    JS Jordan Street
  14. Zaha's quick feet draws a foul from Broich. United have a free-kick in a dangerous position.

    JS Jordan Street
  15. We look very dangerous from corners, Patrice Evra gets another chance but misjudges the header.

    JS Jordan Street
  16. CHANCE: Evra again from a corner, unfortunately the ball hits his shoulder and sales over the bar.

    JS Jordan Street
  17. Lindegaard finally gets a touch of the ball after 20 minutes. That shows how one-sided this game has been so far.

    JS Jordan Street
  18. Zaha skins his man again. This time he fires the ball into the box but nobody was on the end of it.

    JS Jordan Street
  19. United are pressing high up the field here. I wonder if its part of Moyes' new style.

    JS Jordan Street
  20. CHANCE: Lindegaard forced into a decent save after a nice move by the A-League All-Stars. Still 1-0 with 27 minutes gone.

    JS Jordan Street
  21. The A-League side are coming into the game more and more now. Another goal would help settle us down.

    JS Jordan Street
  22. Zaha fires another great ball across the box that comes to nothing. 12 minutes to go till half time.

    JS Jordan Street
  23. GOAL: Another beautiful goal from United, Danny Welbeck finishing it off after some great work from Giggs and Lingard. 2-0 United.

    JS Jordan Street
  24. Ex-Red Liam Miller is doing well in the midfield. He keeps winning the ball back for his side.

    JS Jordan Street
  25. CHANCE: Danny Welbeck rounds the keeper but an A-League defender gets back to block his shot.

    JS Jordan Street
  26. A great block from Rafael creates a chance of a counter attack for United. Zaha goes one-on-one but is unable to beat his man. Unlucky.

    JS Jordan Street
  27. Zaha is at the heart of everything here. A better ball would've give Lingard a tap-in but he can't find his United teammate.

    JS Jordan Street
  28. CHANCE: Danny Welbeck has another chance and probably should've scored. The goalkeeper gets lucky and gets enough on it to see it wide.

    JS Jordan Street
  29. One minute added time at the end of the first half.

    JS Jordan Street
  30. HALF TIME: United 2-0 A-League All-Stars

    JS Jordan Street
  31. What a great half of football. Jesse Lingard the standout for me, he took his goal excellently and he's always looking to make things happen.

    JS Jordan Street
  32. Wilfried Zaha has looked sharp too. He has that natural flair like Ronaldo had when he first joined the club. Still a rough diamond though.

    JS Jordan Street
  33. Welbeck limped off at the end of the half. Hope its nothing serious as he looks good.

    JS Jordan Street
  34. I hope you'll join us for the second half in 15 minutes time. We'll bring you any changes that have been made as soon as we get them.

    JS Jordan Street
  35. SUB: Michael Keane comes on in place of Rio Ferdinand.

    JS Jordan Street
  36. The second half is underway. Hopefully the lads can push on and score a few goals here.

    JS Jordan Street
  37. CHANCE: A Poor pass from Michael Keane lets the A-League all-stars in. Fortunately for United they miss the target.

    JS Jordan Street
  38. CHANCE: Zaha has moved over to the left and skins his man again. He fires in a good ball that Danny Welbeck latches onto, but the defender gets back and gets in a good tackle.

    JS Jordan Street
  39. Zaha reminds me of a young Ronaldo. He has the pace and skill but is nowhere near the finished product.

    JS Jordan Street
  40. GOAL: The A-League All-Stars score through Berisha. Poor marking from Michael Keane gives them a way back into the game.

    JS Jordan Street
  41. Poor keeping from Lindegaard for that goal. He let it trickle past his near post.

    JS Jordan Street
  42. FOUL: Danny Welbeck is taken out by Bogar. The lad is lucky to escape a booking.

    JS Jordan Street
  43. GOAL: Jesse Lingard again. What a strike from the young man, he smashes the ball into the top corner and is now on a hat-trick.

    JS Jordan Street
  44. Lingard is loving it out there. Right now he, Januzaj and Zaha are giving Moyes a real problem ahead of the new season.

    JS Jordan Street
  45. HOWLER: Zaha skins his man again and is brought down. However the ref has a shocker and misses the most blatant penalty ever.

    JS Jordan Street
  46. The crowd go wild as Robin van Persie warms up.

    JS Jordan Street
  47. SUB: Robin van Persie ON. Ryan Giggs OFF

    JS Jordan Street
  48. Robin van Persie comes on for his first minutes under Moyes.

    JS Jordan Street
  49. OUCH: Patrice Evra looks to have hurt his knee after a collision with an A-League Player.

    JS Jordan Street
  50. Attendance tonight is 83,127. It just shows how big football and United is in Australia.

    JS Jordan Street
  51. 25 Minutes to go and united still well on top. Its been an entertaining game over in Australia.

    JS Jordan Street
  52. Some more good work from Danny Welbeck, but sadly he can't finish.

    JS Jordan Street
  53. GOAL: Danny Welbeck has a brace. Robin van Persie curls a wonderful ball in and Danny Welbeck heads home.

    JS Jordan Street
  54. SUBS: Januzaj, Anderson on. Carrick Welbeck off.

    JS Jordan Street
  55. Albeit the opposition haven't looked at their best. United have looked absolutely superb.

    JS Jordan Street
  56. CHANCE: Rafael sends Zaha through, alebit for a good tackle the new boy would've scored.

    JS Jordan Street
  57. SUB: Evra off, Fabio on.

    JS Jordan Street
  58. Robin van Persie has been given the captains armband as Evra goes off.

    JS Jordan Street
  59. 15 minutes to go now. Januzaj has looked good since his arrival. He sprayed a superb 40-yard ball out wide earlier on. Now spins away from his man.

    JS Jordan Street
  60. There is a Mexican wave now going round the stadium in Australia. 10 minutes to go.

    JS Jordan Street
  61. Just five minutes left now. Januzaj is working hard in midfield, he looks good.

    JS Jordan Street
  62. GOAL: Robin van Persie adds a fifth. He needed two bites at the cherry but a neat finish gives United a 5-1 lead.

    JS Jordan Street
  63. CHANCE: Zaha with another good chance. He linked up beautifully with RvP but dragged his shot wide.

    JS Jordan Street
  64. There will be three minutes added time.

    JS Jordan Street
  65. CHANCE: Now Januzaj hits the post after some great work from Zaha again.

    JS Jordan Street
  66. Robin van Persie wins the man of the Match award as voted for by the fans in the stadium.

    JS Jordan Street
  67. Man of the Match: My award goes to Jesse Lingard. He scored two great goals and has covered every blade of grass on the pitch. He has been an absolute joy to watch.

    JS Jordan Street
  68. FULL-TIME: United 5-1 A-League All-Stars.

    JS Jordan Street
  69. Danny Welbeck scored twice as did Jesse Lingard. Robin van Persie added the fifth.

    JS Jordan Street
  70. I was particularly impressed by Jesse Lingard and Wilfried Zaha. They looked hungry for the ball and utilised it very well. Great prospects.

    JS Jordan Street
