The Red Devils were in action today in the after noon against Derby county in the pre-season. This was their first friendly match and ole Gunnar saw it as a chance to give young players an opportunity to prove themselves. Many of their senior players are currently out on a holiday after being involved in the Euro.
Tanith Chong who was on loan last season in the Bundesliga opened the scoring in the early minutes of the game. Pellestri added the second one in the second half after a great pass from Shotire to make it 2-0.
Derby County scored before the end of the match to make it 2-1. This gave Manchester united their first victory in the friendlies this summer. Lingard who spent half of last season on loan to Westham, was also in this match where he performed so well.
He almost scored after his shot beat the goal keeper only to be denied by the woodwork. Lingard performance was so impressive as he caused so much trouble to Derby county defenders.
Last season Lingard started only one match for man United. He spent more time warming the bench something which made him to move out on loan to Westham. Today, he proved ole Gunnar wrong for benching him last season by displaying a great performance against Derby county.
