Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer introduced Scott McTominay, Juan Mata, Daniel James, Andreas Pereira and Odion Ighalo.

Off came Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and hat-trick scorer Anthony Martial.

The change from three to five maximum subs was introduced to help clubs manage the physical demands of Project Restart.

Players spent three months away from training as a result of the coronavirus lockdown, and had a shortened period to regain their fitness compared to regular pre-season.

Teams are also permitted two drinks breaks to cope with the heat.
