Manchester United vs. Liverpool score: Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford leave their mark in statement win
It was redemption day for Manchester United and Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford powered the Red Devils to a 2-1 win over
Liverpool at Old Trafford. Man United looked like an inspired team after losing their first two matches,
passing the ball around the park in the first 20 minutes to lead to Sancho's emphatic opener. The intensity against an injured Liverpool team
that has yet to win a game this season was hard to match as Erik ten Hag's squad made it the half with a one
goal. They were hanging on by the skin of their teeth as Lisandro Martinez made a goal-line clearance to prevent a Bruno Fernandes own goal.
Not to get complacent, ten Hag subbed on Anthony Martial for Anthony Elanga at the half and it paid dividends
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. With the win, United finally kick-start the ten Hag era with three points in front of their home fans,
who were treated to Casemiro's presentation before the game, and their first goal from open play.
