Thanks for joining me on this live blog! Quite an evening we’ve had… Next up, Wayne Rooney’s testimonial!

FULL-TIME: Manchester United 5-2 Galatasaray


92′ – Lingard makes his first mistake of the game with a poor touch from a long ball. I think he can be forgiven!

89′ – Galatasaray are pushing for a third goal – but we all know it’ll make no difference if they get it.

86′ – Memphis beats three players with skill and passes to Mata. The Spaniard gives him it back and with a backheel on the turn, Memphis looks for the return again – but Mata is just offside.

84′ – Phil Jones steams into action and beats Unsal for pace – and the latter is called offside anyway.

Galatasaray have brought on Unsal and Sarioglu.

83′ – Memphis has switched over to the right-hand side, hoping to get a bit more luck there, having been hacked down to no avail on the left.

The last time Manchester United scored 5 goals in a game without the influence of young Marcus Rashford was against Bayer Leverkusen in 2013.

80′ – Mata shoved off the ball by Chedjou on the halfway line. The rest of this game will be a formality for United.

78′ – Twice now Memphis has been brought down by challenges that would certainly be bookable offences in a Premier League or European game, but the referee is yet to afford him a free-kick!

77′ – United are nearly in again as Rashford does six or seven stepovers then looks for a cross, but it’s cleared just in time.


Mata shows some beautiful footwork to roll the ball past two defenders. He finds Carrick with a reverse pass then runs into the box to get on the end of another reverse pass from the Englishman and score.

United 5-2 Galatasaray.

73′ – Memphis has brought his A-game tonight and his skill sets him away again but Muslera is there to parry.

72′ – Memphis dazzles the Galatasaray defence with some lovely skill and picks out Memphis with a backheel. He lays it off to Lingard but the youngster is closed down as he looks to strike at goal.

70′ – Rashford does well to win the ball from Gumus and United are enjoying some possession now.

Ashley Young is playing at left-back now, with Lingard right-mid, Mata left-mid.

United substitutions:

De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Rooney OFF

Romero, Jones, Rojo, Darmian, Memphis, Mata ON

64′ – Galatasaray starting to find their feet again now after that explosive few minutes from United. Keeping possession as it stands.

United are absolutely rampant.


Valencia stands up a wonderful cross for Fellaini at the far post and his looping header lands in the far corner!

4-2 to United!


Rooney converts the spot-kick.

3-2 to United!

57′ – PENALTY!

Rashford’s pace bamboozles Galatasaray and Fernando Muslera brings down the young Englishman. Zlatan is on his feet applauding Marcus’ play.


United have started this second half well and they have their reward! Rashford plays a 1-2 to Antonio Valencia, whose cross from the byline is expertly finished by Rooney with a volley. Great stuff.


54′ – Dzemaili hauls down Rooney on halfway and somehow escapes a booking. This ref really is an interesting one.
