Sancho, starting on the right, scores from the left. Liverpool have been loose with the ball at the back a few times and Sancho did not even need to adjust his stride or take a touch before sweeping it into the bottom right-hand corner.
Ten Hag has been stood in the technical area for most of the match but Steve McClaren and Mitchell van der Gaag are also being vocal. It does help the players the permanent coaches actually coach them on a daily basis, as well as matchdays.
Sancho has started this game pretty brightly and took that goal well. He began on the right and showed some neat footwork in that position and is back there now, with Rashford now through the middle and Martial on the left. The front three have all looked relatively sharp.
There’s some intent from United when it comes to playing a high line and pressing so far and they have won the ball back in some good areas, but you can also see it’s not quite working perfectly at the moment. Liverpool have worked their way through the press a couple of times and De Gea had to come to the rescue to save from Diaz.
Of all the games for MUTV not to have their commentators present for on a pre-season tour. This has been fun to watch so far, with the defending from both sides worthy of the exhibition occasion.
Manchester United are overcommitting at times due to the high line and that is going to have to be mastered over months, rather than an evening in Bangkok. Liverpool have been just as porous but somehow we’ve only had the one goal.
Fred goal for Manchester United vs Liverpool.
This chip vs Alisson ?
