Wigan 0 Man United 2: Red Devils ease to victory in Jose Mourinho’s first game

But it was Will Keane who grabbed the first goal of the game, being teed-up by Juan Mata and aided by a howler from Latics keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.

And United continued to dominate in the second half, with Mata – whose future under Mourinho, the man who sold him at Chelsea, thought to be in doubt – pulling the strings.

Mourinho’s men doubled their lead through Andreas Pereira, who rifled a shot into the top left-hand corner from inside the area.

And Wigan’s main signing of the summer – the former Manchester United man Nick Powell – made his second debut for his new club after 68 minutes.

Varela and Blackett came on for Daley Blind and Herrera as Mourinho took a look at some of his squad players.
