ANDREAS PEREIRA MARKED his first start with a goal as Manchester United beat Ipswich Town 3-0 in the League Cup third round.

The highly-rated Brazilian’s second-half free-kick was sandwiched by goals from Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial as United put in a professional performance at Old Trafford.

Perhaps remembering the disappointment of last season, when his side were embarrassed 4-0 at MK Dons in the League Cup second round, Louis van Gaal chose a strong XI featuring the likes of Rooney and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The move paid quick dividends, too, as the previously out-of-form Rooney netted in the 23rd minute, his first goal in the competition since the 2010 final against Aston Villa.

Ipswich did not give up afterwards and had threatened an equaliser prior to Pereira’s sweet strike in the 60th minute.
