A first-half brace from Marcus Rashford helped set the early tone for the Red Devils, while goals from Marouane Fellaini, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial helped finish off the task for the Premier League giants.

New additions Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof featured for United after half time in the victory.

The Galaxy were always going to be overmatched in the friendly, but Curt Onalfo’s group did manage to score twice in the second half via Giovani dos Santos’ double.

Man United will continue its preseason tour of the United States on Monday when Mourinho and Co. face MLS side Real Salt Lake, before taking on Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona as part of the International Champions Cup.
