Goals By Sancho And Rashford See Red Devils Defeat Liverpool At Old Trafford

By Adegboye Oluwadunsin

It was a Super Monday like any other, full of excitement and blood rush. Both teams were looking for a much needed win after going winless in the first two opening fixtures. A win in this fixture would give the much needed boost to the players. 

Both teams made few changes to their lineup. United benched their Captain Harry Maguire and 5-time balon D’or winner Ronaldo. Liverpool were also without Darwin Nunez as the player saw red in their last match against Palace.

A composed finish by Jadon Sancho in the 16th minute and Marcus Rashford in the 53rd minute  brought United the much needed victory that will reduce the pressure  for under-pressure Erik Ten-Hag. Mohamed Salah scored an 81st-minute consolation but it was not enough to get anything for the Merseyside team.
