Manchester United thrash Leeds in Perth

BY AGENCIES/ SAMSON MBII,NAIROBI,17TH JULY 2019-Manchester United made it two pre-season wins from two as they signed off the Australian leg of their tour in style with a 4-0 thrashing of rivals Leeds in Perth.

Goals from Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side two up at the break and, after 11 half-time changes, Phil Jones’ header and an Anthony Martial penalty sealed the impressive win.

Leeds spurned a host of clear goalscoring opportunities in the first half but, with manager Marcelo Bielsa only having a 16-man squad at his disposal, their challenge faded in the second half as fatigue set in.

Manchester United jet off to Singapore on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s clash with Inter Milan, while Leeds travel across Australia to take on Western Sydney Wanderers.
