Manchester United stars arrive in Australia after 4-0 thrashing of Liverpool

Manchester United

Manchester United touched down in Australia for the second leg of our pre-season tour on Wednesday following Tuesday’s 4-0 thrashing of Liverpool.

First-half goals from Jadon Sancho, Fred and Anthony Martial gave Manchester United a 3-0 lead at half-time before youngster Facundo Pellistri sealed the rout in the second half.

Manchester United arrived Australia on Wednesday where the Red Devils will take part in three more friendlies before heading to Norway.

The first comes against Melbourne Victory on Friday, with another against Crystal Palace on Tuesday. Our final game of the pre-season tour of Australia will the Red Devils take on Aston Villa on July 23.

After the game against Aston Villa, Manchester United will jet off to Norway for our fifth friendly against Atletico Madrid on July 30, before bringing the pre-season schedule to an end against Rayo Vallecano at Old Trafford a day later.

Erik ten Hag was delighted with the performance against Liverpool although he admits there are still mistakes that need to be cut off from Manchester United’s game.

“I’m satisfied today,” Ten Hag told MUTV after the win over Liverpool. “It was a team with a great spirit 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. Liverpool played three teams, they were not at their strongest. We will not overestimate this result.

“But still, I have seen some really good things. A lot of speed and creativity up front.”
