David Moyes’ first game as Manchester United manager ended in a 1-0 defeat as Teeratep Winothai gave the Singha All Stars victory in Bangkok.

No manager likes to lose, especially their first game for a new club, and in this instance, replacing a man who served for 26 years and won 13 Premier League titles.

But Moyes can take several positives from this first run-out, as Adnan Januzaj in the first half and Wilfried Zaha – following his introduction in the second – impressed hugely.
And with Robin van Persie among those set to link up on Sunday in Sydney, where United will spend a week in rather cooler temperatures, the Scot can at least start to feel the hard work has begun in earnest.

The one player with energy and incentive was 18-year-old Januzaj. Latest off that impressive Belgian production line, one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s last acts as United manager was to give Januzaj a squad number, and also a place on the bench for that emotional final game at West Brom.

With Nani and Ashley Young both missing the tour completely and Antonio Valencia not due to join up until later, Januzaj has a chance to impress. And he certainly did so, with his direct running causing huge problems for the Singha All Stars defence.

Danny Welbeck dragged a good chance wide before Zaha came closest to nicking an equaliser, cutting inside the box and curling a shot against the far post.
