What a wonderful and unexpected pre-season it has been for Manchester United and their fans so far.

such has been Louis van Gaal's impact since replacing former manager David Moyes, that not only have United overcome LA Galaxy, Roma, Inter Milan and now Real Madrid, but perennial criticism-magnet Ashley Young has turned into an apparent world-beater.
