In the game to mark the opening of Chivas’ brand new stadium, it took Javier Hernandez just eight minutes to score against current employers Manchester United. He spent the first half wearing the colours of his former team before swapping at half time. Two minutes later another new Manchester United signing equalised, with Chris Smalling heading home a corner for his first goal for United. Chivas then took control of the contest, as either side of the break us conceding from sloppy set-piece goals to Adolfo Bautista on 38 and then Hector Reynoso on the hour. Luis Nani pulled one back in the 80th minute with Cleverley heavily involved.

Manchester United: Kuszczak; De Laet, O’Shea, Smalling, Fabio; Cleverley, Gibson (Nani 46’), Scholes (Giggs 65’), Evans (Fletcher 74’); Berbatov (Hernandez 46’ (Macheda 65’), Diouf (Welbeck 65’)
