Manchester United are taking on Crystal Palace in Melbourne in their third pre-season game of the summer, with Erik ten Hag choosing one of his strongest line-ups once again.
Anthony Martial gave United the lead in the first half following a great move that saw United’s full-backs, Tyrell Malacia and Diogo Dalot, heavily involved.
The Frenchman’s strike was his third in as many games on tour and with Cristiano Ronaldo’s future remaining uncertain, Martial will be backing himself for a starting place in the Premier League curtain-raiser next month.
Just one change was made for the second half, with Donny van de Beek replacing Scott McTominay as the teams made their way back onto the pitch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

It wasn’t long until United doubled their lead against Patrick Vieira’s men as Marcus Rashford scores his second goal of the tour, as seen above.
Bruno Fernandes picked up the ball and found Anthony Martial with a lofted ball before a sequence of perfect passes led to Van de Beek teeing up Rashford for an easy goal.
