United are hoping that they can build on the 5-2 win over LA Galaxy when they take on Real Salt Lake in the second game of their tour.

Romelu Lukaku failed to score in that game and has been warned by captain Michael Carrick on the different pressures that come from playing for Manchester United as oppose to Everton.

Lukaku completed his £75million move from Goodison Park last week and played alongside his new team-mates for the first time.

Carrick completed a similar switch in 2006 when he moved from Tottenham to United - and he says Lukaku will notice big changes.

"The jump is massive," Carrick said.

"I found that myself coming from Tottenham. But having Premier League experience is a massive bonus. He'll know how things work week to week. It's just about dealing with the pressure.

"We know what he is all about, there are no surprises. We all know exactly what he brings and that is why he is here.

"He is not going to change his game because he has come here.

"He does what he does best and obviously he's been brought here to score goals. I am pretty certain he will do that this season."
