Manchester United concluded their tour of the Far East and Australia with a comfortable win over Kitchee as Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj further underlined their claims for roles in David Moyes' squad next season.
United stormed to a 3-0 lead in the first half with Wilfried Zaha once again delighting his new manager but it was Danny Welbeck, Chris Smalling and Fabio da Silva who struck, before Januzaj and Lingard emerged from the bench in the second half to add gloss to their thrilling tour showings as United sealed a 5-2 victory.
On the same pitch that had already seen Tottenham Hotspur's Jan Vertonghen and Manchester City's Matija Nastasic struck down with injury, much of the pre-match concern was on the United contingent coming through the contest unscathed.
Having picked up just one win in their previous four games during their pre-season jaunts United set about making quick work of Kitchee in their final game before returning to Manchester, with Welbeck registering his first goal on tour after 15 minutes, stroking home a volley after Ashley Young's effort struck the post.
Smalling soon nodded in a second before the increasingly impressive Zaha teed up Fabio with a cute pass through the legs of Kitchee defender Zesh Rehman for the Brazilian to power his effort into the far corner of the net.
David Moyes introduced Alexander Buttner, Lingard and Januzaj as the second half commenced and the Belgian, who is quickly garnering a reputation as a potential secret weapon within the United ranks, added his goal just four minutes into the second half.
The fresh-legged Buttner and Lingard combined down the left flank before the Dutchman centred the ball where an unmarked Januzaj pounced to firmly head home United's fourth.
Although Zaha continued to torment the hosts while Carrick and Anderson dominated a midfield that was increasingly beginning to resemble a wartime trench, Kitchee gave United a shock ten minutes into the second half when Lamm rocketed an arrow-like effort from 25 yards out past the despairing Ben Amos after side-stepping Welbeck and Carrick.
Although still enjoying the majority of possession with Januzaj operating freely in a role behind Welbeck, the visitors allowed the opposition back in for a second ten minutes later as Alex encroached from the right hand side before easily beating an isolated Buttner to drill his effort across Amos.
The introduction of Robin van Persie caused excitement to reverberate around the Hong Kong Stadium as the game approached the final 10 minutes, but 20-year-old Lingard provided the final spark of the contest. Isolated in front of the Kitchee defence with four surrounding him. The United youngster feinted twice before unleashing a marvellous curling effort into the top corner, his fourth goal of the pre-season campaign, wrapping up the contest in emphatic fashion.
