German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger was introduced in the second half in a game which saw United boss Louis van Gaal make 11 changes at half-time and overall 22 players played.

Adnan Januzaj and Ander Herrera both went close after the break but once
goal proved enough.

Next for United is a game against San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday in California.
