Jose Mourinho showing his frustration during the clash with Real Madrid

Anthony Martial has failed to return to Manchester United's pre-season tour in the U.S. and the club are set to fine him 202,000 euros.

Manager Jose Mourinho has spent his preseason grumbling about his players' performances and the lack of summer signings, prompting bookmakers to make him the favourite to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked next season.

"In relation to the match, the result doesn't change anything", Mourinho said.

We have just a few [senior] players here, lots of kids.

Karim Benzema pulled one back in first-half stoppage-time and the closest Real came to equalizing, was through Raul De Tomas in the 82nd minute.

"Our kids are really, really young because the team of the older ones, the Under-23s, was relegated - the team went to the second division and were relegated, so the quality was not good". A clash with Real Madrid now looms.

"I know that these guys are incredible professionals and I know that they give everything for the club, for the prestige of the club".

"We need one of the forward thinking players to get up there and support Sanchez". It will let the coaches, the clubs and the players prepare better than us.

United doubled the lead nine minutes later after Darmian, Mata and Sanchez combined in a sensational team move to tee up Herrera, who fired a half-volley past Kiko Casilla approaching the half-hour mark.

"He can get on the ball, I've watched him in training".

United landed in Manchester on Wednesday morning to begin preparations for their final friendly against Bayern Munich in Germany on Sunday and the start of the Premier League season against Leicester at Old Trafford on August 10.

They open the 2018/19 Premier League season with a home fixture against Leicester City on August 10.
