Manchester United youngster Jesse Lingard had a remarkable game against A-League All Stars as he scored a brace in the Red Devils' 5-1 victory.
Lingard put in a great performance, by scoring a brace in David Moyes' second game in charge of United.
He scored the first goal under Moyes, before Welbeck netted another goal for United. Lingard and Welbeck shared four goals between them, each hitting a brace. Robin van Persie scored the final goal for United and was voted fans' man-of-the-match, after being on the pitch for only 30 odd minutes as a second-half substitute.
However, the star of the show was the 20-year-old, who put in a stunning performance after being selected in Moyes' 19-man squad for the game in Sydney. Lingard, who was on loan to Championship club Leicester last season, along with Michael Keane, another United youngster, could have a positive future ahead of him at Old Trafford.
Although Lingard isn't quite a regular starter and probably won't for the next few seasons, another loan move will develop the youngster's game and find him valuable minutes on the pitch, instead of fighting for a first-team spot with the current United squad.
Wilfried Zaha looked the part, along with 18-year-old Adnan Januzaj, who came on as a second-half sub. Overall, United had a solid game against the A-League All Stars and impressed in Sydney, netting five goals.
Lingard was the most prolific stand-out player for United in the fixture against the Aussies, but will we see a repeat of that in the future to come?
