Manchester United defeat Liverpool 2-1 to open their premier league account

Manchester United got their most memorable success of the Premier League season, beating Liverpool 2-1 at a boisterous Old Trafford on Monday night.

Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford either side of half-time gave Man United and director Erik ten Hag a gigantic three points regardless of it just being the third round of the premier league for the two sides. Mohamed Salah scored late in the second half for Liverpool, however the Red Devils held tight for the success. The hosts came in without a point from their initial two matches, yet at 16 minutes Sancho got a pass in the centre of the area from Anthony Elanga, pulled it together and tranquilly shot past Alisson to give United the lead.

United defended well all through the rest of the first half, offering Liverpool few possibilities, and took a 1-0 lead into the break. Rashford doubled the home side's advantage not long after the restart with an exquisite shot past Alisson from Anthony Martial's through ball that passed on him with just the goalkeeper to beat.

The Old Trafford swarm thundered in their group all through the remainder of the second half and Liverpool watched uniquely out of answers as they looked to track down a way back into the game.

Salah sprung up to score a consolation from short distance in the 81st moment for Liverpool and set up a cheeky completion to the game for United, yet Jurgen Klopp's side couldn't track down the remainder and stay without a win this season.

The result took Ten Hag's side off the foot of the table into fourteenth spot, while last season's runner up finishers Liverpool, whose Premier League dash of 21 games without a loss was snapped, are in sixteenth on only two point from their initial three games.
