The 30-year-old midfielder, who signed a three-year deal with Erik ten Hag's side earlier this month, played his first minutes in a United shirt against National League side Wrexham on Wednesday.
And the Danish international opened his account for the Reds with a first half free-kick –– the perfect start to life at Old Trafford following last season's productive spell at Brentford.
It was a strong first-half showing from The Dragons but a youthful United bagged three goals after the break.
Alejandro Garnacho, who returned to pre-season early, despite being allowed a three-week break, found himself on the scoresheet, say reports.

- #MUFC's goals were scored by Eriksen, Amad, Garnacho and Alex Telles
- Eriksen's goal was a free kick
- The game was originally supposed to be played by the youth team but Ten Hag wanted to give some first team players more minutes
Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, was in attendance for the pre-season friendly clash, according to The Manchester Evening News.
Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire watched on alongside the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
Ten Hag also handed new £55 million signing Lisandro Martinez his first minutes in a United jersey, just hours after they officially announced his arrival from Ajax.
The centre-back has penned a contract until June 2027, with the option to extend for a further year.
After signing the deal, Martinez said: “It’s an honour to join this great football club. I’ve worked so hard to get to this moment and, now that I’m here, I’m going to push myself even further.
“I’ve been lucky enough to be part of successful teams in my career and that’s what I want to continue at Manchester United. There will be a lot of work to get to that moment, but I firmly believe that, under this manager and coaches, and together with my new team-mates, we can do it.
“I want to thank Ajax and their fans for all the support they gave me. I had an unbelievable time there but feel the moment is right to test myself in another environment. Now I am at the perfect club to do this.”
