Juan Mata scored an injury-time penalty against Norwegian side Kristiansund to keep Manchester United’s pre-season record in tact.

Despite having plenty of opportunities to score, United failed to take them, relying on a penalty won by Mata to make it five wins out of five this summer.

David de Gea was named captain, something that is a possibility in the long-term with reports suggesting that he is ready to commit his future to the club again. He has recently spoken about the pride he takes in wearing the armband.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s son, Noah, made his professional debut for the opposition.

United: De Gea (c) (Romero 60); Wan-Bissaka (Dalot 60), Jones (Tuanzebe 60), Lindelof (Rojo 60), Shaw (Young 60); Matic (Pogba 60), McTominay (Fred 60); James (Andreas 60), Lingard (Mata 60), Martial (Chong 60); Rashford (Greenwood 60).
