Valerenga are deep into their domestic campaign and sit seventh in Norway’s top division but United looked the sharper early on as Henrikh Mkhitaryan forced a blocking save and Paul Pogba saw an effort hit a post.

Marcus Rashford was next to go close but it was not until a minute before half-time that United made the breakthrough.

Nemanja Matic’s impending arrival could yet spell the end of Fellaini’s time at Old Trafford but the big Belgian served a reminder of what he is capable of by heading United in front from Mkhitaryan’s cross. José Mourinho made nine changes at the break and two of the newcomers combined after 48 minutes as Lukaku headed home a Joel Pereira cross at the far post. Valerenga had a rare opportunity just after the hour mark but it was spurned by Ghayas Zahid and, shortly afterwards, the 20-year-old McTominay scored his first senior goal for United with a confidently taken half-volley. Lukaku nearly added a fourth late on but he dragged his shot just wide. United head to Dublin next to play Sampdoria before facing Real Madrid in the European Super Cup in Skopje on 8 August.
