Manchester United and Liverpool did not wait for the start of the new Premier League season to offer themselves a first showdown. It was this Tuesday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Against all expectations, the duel between the intimate enemies was favorable to the Red Devils. The latter won with a final score of four goals to nil.
A one-sided match between the two rivals
Having better digested the ground work they have faced since resuming training, the Mancuniens have rolled their regional rivals. They even folded the game after half time. Jadon Sancho (12)e), Fred (30e) and Anthony Martial (33e) successively failed Alisson during this first act.

With an experimental team and making about thirty changes, Liverpool lacked the benchmarks and automatic mechanisms to be able to react. United’s nets remained unbroken, while those of the Reds shook for a fourth time with a quarter of an hour remaining. The young Uruguayan Facundo Pellistri completed the nice success of his family. A success that must certainly please the new coach, Erik Ten Hag. The latter could not have dreamed of a better debut, even if it was only a simple friendly match.
