Jose Mourinho led his side to Champions League qualification last season via the Europa League

The Belgian forward netted in the 37th minute, beating the keeper with a well controlled shot grabbed from a slick Henrikh Mkhitariyan pass.

There was plenty to cheer for United in a 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium, the Major League Soccer franchise's handsome home-not least a first goal for the club for Romelu Lukaku.

The FC panel assess Jose Mourinho's notion that Man United were the second most successful Premier League club last season.

That stance seems to have softened and talk of a summer return to United - where he made his name - has dissipated.

United have not come close to being champions since Fergie retired in 2013. That's my first mentality when I get onto the pitch. The coach is the same smart guy the important match to win is on Wednesday against Vancouver.

Job done tonight then, @RomeluLukaku9!

'From the first day, when we had the meeting with the manager in Los Angeles, you just felt that something special was happening. "We've got the Super Cup coming up pretty quick, so we've got to be focused on that really and then the season ahead". Asked about Inter Milan's Croatian winger Ivan Perisic, who is in talks with United, Mourinho said: "No idea, no idea my friend". His goal scoring rate is phenomenal and hence provides a great option for any side. He has so much quality I would need to take a few minutes to explain them.

Still, given the preseason nature of the clash, referee Allan Chapman approached Mourinho and suggested he substitute Valencia.

Manchester United Defender Antonio Valencia does, and his manager Jose Mourinho defended the challenge, believing his right back definitely did not deserve to see red. After some discussions, however, the young goalkeeper decided to renew, which means Real Madrid will have to look elsewhere for their number one.
