The 23-years-old had a rather quiet 45 minutes in the game though he missed a great chance shortly after being brought on.

Defender Victor Lindelof also made his debut, but it was already 3-0 when the duo were introduced, with Marcus Rashford having stolen the show in the first half with two goals.

Rashford scored a brace and should have had a third to go with Marouane Fellaini's first-half goal.
