Manchester United 2 - 0 Manchester City (Jul-21-2017) Intl Champions Cup Highlights

Romelu Lukaku scored his second goal in two matches as Manchester United beat Manchester City 2-0 in Houston on Thursday.
Romelu Lukaku showed just why Manchester United splashed the cash to sign him as Jose Mourinho's men earned early bragging rights against bitter rivals Manchester City courtesy of a 2-0 win at the International Champions Cup.

Belgium international Lukaku, who arrived from Everton for a reported £75million, opened his account in the 2-1 friendly win over Real Salt Lake on Monday.

And Lukaku made it two goals in two games with Thursday's opening strike in the first Manchester derby played on foreign soil at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas - where Ederson and Kyle Walker made their debuts for City.

Lukaku showed his pace and power as he put United ahead after rounding City's debutant goalkeeper Ederson - who experienced a mixed evening - in the 37th minute and Pep Guardiola's men crumbled again before half-time.

Playing with Lukaku for the first time, Marcus Rashford was not overshadowed as he produced a clinical finish to double the lead two minutes later.

Aside from Eric Bailly, Jose Mourinho named arguably his strongest XI, with David de Gea, Antonio Valencia, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Jesse Lingard, Rashford and Lukaku in the line-up.

City fans got a glimpse of Ederson and Walker for the first time, while Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany, Raheem Sterling and Yaya Toure also started, with star recruit Bernardo Silva still away on holiday following the Confederations Cup.
