Romelu Lukaku showed just why Manchester United splashed the cash to sign him as Jose Mourinho’s men earned early bragging rights against bitter rivals Manchester City courtesy of a 2-0 win at the International Champions Cup.
But it was a debut to forget for City’s new signing Ederson Moraes, who Pep Guardiola brought in for £34.7m from Benfica to put an end to the goalkeeping problems that dogged his first season in charge.
The Brazilian was at fault for Lukaku’s 35th minute opener when he ran out of goal to cut out Paul Pogba’s through ball, but was beaten to the ball by the United striker, who then expertly squeezed in a finish from a tight angle.
Playing with Lukaku for the first time, Marcus Rashford was not overshadowed as he produced a clinical finish to double the lead two minutes later.
