Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has admitted he was happy with the spirit shown by his players in the 4-0 victory over Liverpool on Tuesday.

However, Ten Hag revealed Manchester United conceded too many chances to Liverpool and admitted the Red Devils must work hard to cut out the mistakes.

Ten Hag told MUTV: “I am satisfied today. It was a team with a great sprit and we know we are just getting started.

“We made some mistakes in the press, we conceded some chances, but we created a lot.

“We have to work hard to cut out the mistakes but of course we are happy.

“I know we have good players. We have started to build a team and I am happy with the first game.

“It will take a lot of time. I have seen a lot of mistakes.”

Jadon Sancho scored the first goal of the game in the 12th minute. Fred made it 2-0 in the 30th minute. Standing just outside the box, the Brazilian midfielder chipped the ball over Alisson with the Liverpool goalkeeper stranded out of his goal.

Three minutes later in the 33rd minute, Anthony Martial made it 3-0 for United.

Uruguayan forward Facundo Pellistri made it 4-0 for Man United following a fine play by United centre-back Eric Bailly.
