Manchester United vs Perth glory player ratings: Daniel James, Wan-Bissaka and Paul Pogba impress in win

Manchester United began their pre-season campaign with a 2-0 win against Perth Glory in Australia, Marcus Rashford and James Garner getting the goals as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side cruised to a win.
There was no place in the squad for Romelu Lukaku, who is being chased by Inter Milan, but wantaway midfielder Paul Pogba was one of the 11 players to come on at half-time and was responsible for a huge upturn in performance.
Daniel James and Aaron-Wan Bissaka impressed in their first outings as United players, both offering an exciting and youthful approach that was attacking and direct in possession.
Rashford opened the scoring in front of the 50,000-strong crowd in Perth and youngster Garner doubled the lead with his first touch of the game in the 85th minute.
See how we rated the players in the gallery below.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be pleased with a lot of what he saw from his side tonight. United dominated from start to finish and played with a decent tempo and impetus throughout. Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka looked at home on debut while youngsters Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Mason Greenwood and James Garner all impressed.
The lack of penetration, especially in the first half, would have frustrated the United bench but the introductions of Pogba and Mata added some potency.
For their part Perth were organised and diligent defensively, making their more illustrious guests earn every opening. They showed little ambition going forward though save for the occasional isolated breakaway from Joel Chianese or Bruno Fornaroli.
The only injury concern from the night looks to be a possible hamstring injury to Luke Shaw.
