Manchester United defeated Norwegian side Valerenga 3-0 in the Premier League side’s sixth pre-season friendly of the summer on Sunday at the Uleevaal Stadium, Oslo.
Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Scott McTominay scored United’s goals in the match.
Valerenga paraded 20-year-old Nigerian striker Chidera Ejuke for 80 minutes. He was substituted by Magnus Grodem.
United who had participated in the International Champions Cup in the United States before the match looked the more likely to get on the score sheet as early as the third minute as Juan Mata’s pass teed up Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but the midfielder’s shot was saved while Paul Pogba’s effort was just over the bar soon afterwards.
Fellaini headed in Mkhitaryan cross with the aid of a deflection to put a dominant United ahead in the 44th minute.
New signing Lukaku headed in an Andreas Pereira corner two minutes into the second half for his third goal of pre-season.
Youngster Mctominay made it 3-0 for the Red Devils in the 70th minute when he evaded his marker and placed the ball at the far corner for his first United goal.
