Manchester United suffered defeat in the first game of the David Moyes era as they went down 1-0 to the Singha All-Stars.

The hosts threatened early as Jonny Evans was called into action early to pull off a goal-saving tackle, and although they enjoyed the majority of possession, United's passing was sluggish and off the pace as they struggled to create any clear chances. Ben Amos was called into action to make a further fine save towards the end of the half, with Adnan Januzaj the only real bright spark for United, who had perhaps the best opportunity of the first half when he fired over the bar from close range following Fabio's cross.

After the second half, United fell to a shock All-Stars lead as Teeratap Winothai, the captain, a Manchester United fan, and former Everton academy player put the hosts in the lead, sliding the ball past Ben Amos at the near post.

United reacted by introducing Jesse Lingard and Wilfried Zaha to the fray, but still struggled to do much in the way of clear chances, one promising move falling foul of overcomplication as a cut-back to Tom Cleverley was cleared by the All-Stars defence.

United created more chances towards the end of the game, with Danny Welbeck putting it wide with only the keeper to beat before WIlfried Zaha used his skill to beat two defenders before curling the ball into the post, but in the end the hosts hung on for a surprising win.
