Manchester United 4-0 Leeds United: Marcus Rashford and Aaron Wan-Bissaka dazzle as Red Devils thrash Whites

Marcus Rashford scored a superb solo goal as Manchester United thrashed Leeds 4-0 in Perth to record their second win of pre-season.

The Red Devils took the lead after just seven minutes when Mason Greenwood tapped home following some superb play down the right from new summer signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Pogba fizzed a free-kick just wide of the Leeds goal as Man United kicked forward, with the World Cup winner stinging the palms of Casilla after wriggling free.

Wan-Bissaka did well in the build-up to that goal and Pogba had another attempt, before Leeds belatedly grew into proceedings.

Jack Harrison hit the side-netting after getting past Wan-Bissaka and Pablo Hernandez was denied, before Sergio Romero somehow kept out Patrick Bamford with his feet.

Those chances jolted Man United back into life, with Greenwood going close before the Optus Stadium witnessed a 28th-minute goal on the break.

Scott McTominay won the ball on the edge of his own box and drove forward. The Scotland international eventually played in Rashford, whose drop of the shoulder left Gaetano Berardi on the deck and gave him time to coolly fire home.

The sides went in at half-time with Solskjaer’s men boasting a 2-0 lead.

Hernandez and Kemar Roofe had attempts to cut the deficit, but Leeds goalkeeper Casilla had to be alert to prevent the Reds notching a third after Rashford showed a touch as impressive as the pass to him from Pogba.

Daniel James, who was so close to joining Leeds at the start of the year, hit the post before the break after displaying his remarkable pace when overlapping Rashford.

Man United made 11 changes at half-time for the second successive match but it did not disrupt their flow.

Andreas Pereira saw a shot from distance tipped over by Casilla and the Brazil international helped punish Leeds from the resulting corner.

Highly-rated Kalvin Phillips was guilty of losing Phil Jones when Pereira swung in the set piece, with the defender powerfully heading home in the 51st minute.
