Manchester United earned their first win of the pre-season when they beat Australian A-League All Stars 5-1 in front of 84,000 fans in Sydney.

Robin van Persie was a second half substitute for United and scored the fifth goal of the game after youth products Jesse Lingard and Danny Welbeck scored the earlier four goals.

Patrice Evra was replaced by Fabio da Silva in the second half and gave the captain’s armband to Van Persie.
