Under-23s: Manchester United 0 Villarreal 2
Two goals at the start of the second half accounted for Manchester United's Premier League International Cup aspirations as Villarreal won 2-0 at Leigh Sports Village.
Tahith Chong's run led to another chance for Kehinde and the attack continued with Ethan Hamilton's fierce effort testing Jose Antonio Martinez in the visitors' goal. Martinez's best save, however, came when he repelled a Chong shot after the Dutchman latched onto a loose clearance from a Zak Dearnley cross.
Dearnley won possession in midfield but a careless pass led to the ball being collected by Adrian Dalmau, who ruthlessly punished the mistake by tricking his way past Ro-Shaun Williams and finishing smartly beyond Kieran O'Hara.
Redmond made an important challenge to prevent Cristian Cedres scoring a third goal for Villarreal on the break as United really had the stuffing knocked out of the cup campaign. The hosts tried to stage a late comeback and Hamilton fired wide but O'Hara was the busier of the two keepers in the closing stages.
