Manchester United thrashed Liverpool 4-0 in Erik ten Hag’s first game in charge of the Red Devils.

Manchester United started the game brilliantly with Jadon Sancho scoring the first goal of the game in the 12th minute.

Bruno Fernandes clipped in a cross which is cut out by Nat Phillips, but Isaac Mabaya could only knock the ball clear as far as the waiting Sancho, who confidently slots the ball into the far bottom right corner.

Fred made it 2-0 for Manchester United with the goal of the game. 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.

It’s definitely a brilliant way to start the pre-season for Man United. While there remains work to be done, Ten Hag will also be delighted with the performance of the players against Liverpool.
