Liverpool tried to find the leveller in the first period but failed to do so, allowing Manchester United go into the break with a slender advantage.

Things got more exciting in the second period as second-half substitute Anthony Martial created a chance for Marcus Rashford, with the English attacker doubling United’s advantage to the joy of the Old Trafford fans.

Erik the Hag’s side looked much more better, despite resting some usual starters like Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire.

However, Liverpool roared back into the game after Mohamed Salah headed past David de Gea in the 81st minute.

Ronaldo would eventually come in late in the game as United looked to close out the game.
