Starting the season with two losses against Brighton and Brentford and falling to the bottom of the table – something that had never happened since 1921, a gloomy atmosphere covered Old Trafford.

Man Utd entered the game enthusiastically, playing dominantly, while Liverpool struggled due to the absence of key players such as Darwin Nunez, Thiago, Diogo Jota, Ibrahima Konate or Joel Matip.

Sancho shared joy with his teammates amid the roar of the Old Trafford stadium after the opening goal.

The home team did not regret it for long.

Liverpool quickly responded.

In the last 10 minutes of the first half, when Man Utd faltered, Liverpool organized more sharp attacks, hitting Man Utd’s wings.

Rashford beat Alisson to score Man Utd’s second goal.

The second half began with Liverpool’s attempt to rise.

Excited, Man Utd continued to pressure and without Alisson’s reflexes, Liverpool would have been conceded a second time by Rashford.

In the last 30 minutes, Man Utd retreated their formation to keep the score.

Liverpool players complained when Fernandes prevented them from putting the ball back into play after shortening the score.

With 10 minutes left in the second half, Liverpool pulled one goal back.

Ronaldo entered the field in the last minutes, playing left wing to replace Rashford.

Winning three points, Man Utd surpassed Liverpool to climb to 14th place. They will be a guest of Southampton in the next round on August 27.
