Manchester United got their pre-season off to a flying start on Tuesday with a 4-0 rout of rivals Liverpool in Thailand on Tuesday, giving new manager Erik ten Hag a big boost in his first match in charge.
Liverpool looked jaded and on the back foot for much of the match against a United team with superior fitness who capitalised on a series of first-half errors in Bangkok with three goals in the space of 21 minutes.
Liverpool created the best scoring chance before United opened the scoring after 12 minutes when a Bruno Fernandez cross was poorly handled by the Liverpool defence, allowing Jadon Sancho to fire into bottom corner.
Fred and Anthony Martial all netted with delightful finoshes but it was Liverpool that dominated the second half, manager Jurgen Klopp bringing on such big hitters like Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago and new signing Darwin Nunez.
Salah went close to scoring for the Reds but United completed the demolition with 14 minutes left, Facundo Pellistri latching onto an Eric Bailly pass on the counter and converting with ease after a one-two with Amad Diallo.
