Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United era is off to the perfect start as United have scored four goals in their pre-season win over Premier League rivals Liverpool.
After a positive first half, Man United were second best to the Reds in the second as Jurgen Klopp brought on his star players to start off their pre-season campaign. The Merseyside club should have had a couple of goals, but United would grab the fourth of the match.
The goal came after a run into midfield from Eric Bailly who performed a lovely step over and passed it to Facundo Pellistri. The 20-year-old took the ball further before linking up with Amad Diallo and finishing it off with his right foot.
Before the changes came at half-time, Manchester United dominated with some of their key players and lead 3-0 at the break. The second half was a slow starter but United’s young side managed to keep Liverpool at bay.
Facundo Pellistri got his name on the scoresheet after a counter-attack when Amad Diallo squared the ball into the box. The Uruguayan winger guided his shot into the bottom corner to make it 4-0.
