Manchester United 3 – 1 Barcelona – Match Highlights

As the pre-season tours draw to a close, and with only a few weeks remaining until the season starts, these final matches are critical for the players who are looking to cement a place in the first team. Van Gaal offered playing chances to some of those fringe players such as Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj to see what they have to offer.  Lingard was plagued with injury last season, and Januzaj failed to build upon a good season under David Moyes, but they both managed to score and add to Wayne Rooney’s first half header.

Barcelona were without Lionel Messi and Neymar, but Luis Suarez was a threat from every point of the pitch. He gave Phil Jones a fairly torrid afternoon and managed to hit the woodwork twice, once from a sublime free-kick which had David De-Gea rooted to the spot. Barcelona gave plenty of their youngsters a run out as Luis Enrique is also keen to expose some of their home-grown players to the big stage. Check out the match highlights below.
