MOTM – Not Sancho or Rashford, new Man of the Match emerge as Man Utd trash Liverpool at Old Trafford
Liverpool 2-1 Manchester United RECAP: United earn their first victory under Erik ten Hag following Glazer’s objection.
Manchester United and Liverpool met in the Premier League at Old Trafford after thousands of fans protested the club’s owners, the Glazers.
Erik ten Hag won his debut game as Manchester United manager, defeating Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils made the better start of the two teams, scoring within the first 15 minutes as Jadon Sancho expertly stroked the ball home. Liverpool surged into the game and nearly equalized soon before halftime, but Lisandro Martinez cleared the ball off the line after James Milner’s header.
United, though, extended their lead through Marcus Rashford, who showed tremendous poise to sneak past Alisson after being set up by Anthony Martial.
Mohamed Salah pulled one back for Jurgen Klopp’s side, but it was too little, too late, and the Reds were defeated for the first time this season.
