One of the criticisms aimed at Romelu Lukaku is that he doesn't score enough goals against the big clubs. Here, in Houston's NRG Stadium, a pre-season derby between Manchester United and Manchester City coached by Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, he went some way to dispelling that notion with a effort of stunning quality to set his new club on course for victory in the Manchester derby. It was Lukaku's second goal in as many games for Manchester United following a £75million move from Everton, and the fact it came against Manchester City will be all the sweeter. A routine finish against Real Salt Lake is one thing, but this was something else altogether; a sublime finish from the tightest of angles against one of United's main rivals for the Premier League title next season.
Marcus Rashford added United's second with a confident finish almost immediately as Jose Mourinho's side floored their neighbours with a quick one-two. City never really recovered from that, but there were still positives for Pep Guardiola to draw from an entertaining encounter in Texas.

A Manchester derby that saw NFL star JJ Watt did the coin toss and Canadian rapper Drake presented the match ball,it was truly a weired and cranked up atmosphere!
