Man United thrash Liverpool in Thailand friendly


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Erik ten Hag enjoyed a winning start as Manchester United manager as three first-half goals set up his side for an impressive 4-0 success over rivals Liverpool in Bangkok yesterday.

Jadon Sancho opened the scoring before Fred and Anthony Martial increased United’s lead against a Liverpool side that made 21 changes across the 90 minutes, including half-hour cameos for new signings Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho.

Young Uruguayan Facundo Pellistri added a fourth near the end as, in front of over 50,000 enthusiastic supporters in the Thai capital, Liverpool were made to pay for a combination of their profligacy at one end and defensive errors at the other.



It is, of course, only the start of pre-season, with some Liverpool players literally returning from a holiday in the hours before Saturday’s tour departure.
Of the starting line-ups, United’s also contained far more players expected to be involved on the opening Premier League weekend.

But still, after the torture their fans have experienced over the past 12 months, this was a blessed relief and Ten Hag was applauded by the United contingent when his face was shown on the big screen in the dying minutes.
