FULL-TIME: Wigan Athletic 0-2 Manchester United.

A tap-in for Will Keane and a sublime volley from Andreas Pereira give Jose Mourinho his first victory as United manager.

90′ – A final United attack almost results in a third goal as Mata flashes the ball across goal but nobody can apply the finishing touch.

88′ – Axel Tuanzebe drops to the floor under attacking pressure but Antonio Valencia is there to make sure it doesn’t lead to a chance for Wigan.

86′ – Mourinho is still bellowing instructions, even this late into a friendly at 2-0 up!

86′ – United completely on top hereas they look for a third goal. Will Keane lashes a shot over the bar from a tight angle.

83′ – Nick Powell launches a beautiful diagnoal ball as Wigan try to keep United at bay by holding onto possession. They’re enjoying as nice spell but it’s unlikely that’ll change the result.

81′ – Axel Tuanzebe replaces Eric Bailly and Pereira comes on for Johnstone

United are also planning to change their ‘keeper as Joel Castro Pereira prepares to replace Sam Johnstone between the sticks.

79′ – Wigan are bringing on goalkeeper Lee Nicholls to replace Jussi Jaaskelainen for the last ten minutes

78′ – Mata’s ball in is a good one but it comes to nothing.

78′ – Nick Powell goes in hard on Antonio Valencia and gives away a free-kick

Guillermo Varela is playing alongside Andreas Pereira in the heart of United’s midfield…

75′ – Mata’s corner is headed away and Pereira’s volley from that goes high and wide.

73′ – Guillermo Varela and Tyler Blackett replace Daley Blind and Ander Herrera.

70′ – Ex-United man Nick Powell comes on for Wigan, replacing Emyr Huws

67′ – Joel Pereira and Axel Tuanzebe have been sent out to warm up.

Pereira has been very bright so far, playing alongside Herrera as a true central midfielder, as opposed to in an attacking-midfield position.

65′ – Wigan are trying to keep the ball but they’re stuck playing it across the back four, no way out.

63′ – Jones’ hair is terrible.

Apologies for that break in updates, we had some technical issues…. While we were gone, Andreas PEREIRA made it 2-0 to United with a lovely volley into the top corner!

Forget Will Grigg, Will Keane’s on fire!

1-0 United!

The second half is underway. Mata is in the #10 role, and Antonio Valencia is playing at right-back. Eric Bailly is still on the pitch.

Phil Jones, Juan Mata, Andreas Pereira, Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia, Adnan Januzaj and Will Keane are all coming on for United for the second half.

HT: Wigan Athletic 0-0 Manchester United

43′ – Wigan are diving into every challenge – you’d think we’re playing a cup final, not a friendly!

42′ – A lot of play in and around the midfield right now, with United certainly on top.

39′ – The ball falls to Hughes on the edge of the United box but Daley Blind is there with the slide tackle to remove the danger

38′ – Eric Bailly is under pressure from Will Grigg with the ball bouncing around them, but Bailly flicks it over the Northern Irishman’s head then chests it down in a fantastically composed manner.

38′ – Lingard and Herrera combine down the right and the former gets a fantastic cross in, but Mkhitaryan hits it over the bar, which he’ll certainly be disappointed with.

Tim is up again now. It looks like he was winded when he took an elbow to the stomach on Wigan’s last attack.

Concern over Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who has been down in the United box for a minute or so now.

34′ – Wigan get another nice cross in but again, nobody is there to make the most of it!

31′ – Shaw lays Memphis off with a back-heel and the Dutchman’s shot from distance is just wide of the far post. Promising signs at the DW.

30′ – Herrera lofts a ball towards Wilson but it’s headed away.

27′ – Free kick to Wigan after a bit of a rugby tackle from Fosu-Mensah. A good cross comes of it, but nobody can connect.

25′ – Shaw plays a great ball up the left to Memphis, who beats Daniels to it and links up with Wilson. The young striker finds Mkhitaryan but he’s crowded out of a shooting opportunity.

24′ – Mkhitaryan plays a lovely ball to Memphis but he just can’t get the right shot on it from a tricky angle

23 – Lingard is barged down from behind but somehow doesn’t get a free-kick. Terrible foul with no intent to win the ball.

21′ – Chants of “Mourinho’s barmy army” ring out as Fosu-Mensah is brought down in his own half

17′ – Chance! Mkhitaryan plays Lingard in but his shot is deflected wide

Rather strangely, Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly are both wearing a #3 shirt!

12′ – Mkhitaryan is gliding past players as if they’re not actually there. Effortless and classy.

10 minutes into the game and not too much has happened, but the Red Devils are playing slick, attacking football. Carrick is doing well to marshall Bailly through his debut so far.

You’ll all be pleased to know that the ball is being passed in a forwards direction by people wearing Manchester United shirts.

3′ Luke Shaw gets his first touch of the ball to a huge roar and a round of applause from the United fans

United fans at the DW are in good voice, singing “Once a blue, always a red” to Jose Mourinho

The Jose Mourinho era is underway!

None of Wigan’s ex-United players start at the DW Stadium today – but Will Grigg does!

Here is United’s starting eleven, featuring debuts for new signings Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan…
