What a day it was for Manchester United as Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford pushed a powerful 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford.
The team seemed to be in form after losing their first two matches, passing the ball around the park in the first 20 minutes to lead to Sancho’s emphatic opener. Martial assisted United’s second goal in the 51st minute. Mohamed Salah got one back after a shot attempt from Fabio Carvalho late but the game was out of reach. Raphel Varane and Lisandro Martinez were impressive in defense for Manchester United. Between them, they made 16 clearances as they attacked the ball. More importantly, they didn’t dive into tackles to make themselves vulnerable to the oncoming Liverpool attack
Liverpool, meanwhile, looked scattered after three games without a win and a performance to forget at Old Trafford as they were outworked on every area of the pitch.
