Man United beat Liverpool without Ronaldo, Maguire to kick-start the Ten Hag era in style

MANCHESTER, England – Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford helped Man United end a turbulent start to the season and restart their campaign with a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford. Mohamed Salah scored a consolation goal in the final 10 minutes to cause some nervy moments for the hosts, but the win is vindication for United boss Erik ten Hague as he looks to disrupt the club.

Fast response

1. United started the season without Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Around 10,000 fans gathered outside Old Trafford before kick-off and tried to force lasting changes by protesting the Glazer family’s ownership of Manchester United, but Erik ten Hague showed he was too soon after the teams were announced. Can shake things up.

Leaving both your club captain and legendary centre-forward out for a game of this magnitude takes some confidence, but United are without Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo for the first time since January 15. In fact, it was only the fourth Premier League game. Ronaldo returned to United from Juventus last summer and after a poor defeat at Brentford the difference in performance could hardly have been greater as the teenager picked up his first Premier League win of his career.

Perhaps it was the protest that shook the soul. Perhaps it was the identity of the opposition, with supporters arriving carrying pictures of Avram Glazer chanting ‘Up the Glazers’ as Liverpool looked to extend their recent dominance over United. But either way, United began Ten Hague’s tenure with a performance full of hunger, discipline and a quality of counter-attacking that was almost completely lacking in the first two games.

United supporters have long craved an exciting vision of the future – can it be done without Ronaldo and Maguire more often?

2. Sancho and Rashford come alive.

Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford have both been in such poor form of late that their hopes of making England’s World Cup squad are hanging by a thread these days. Sancho has often struggled for his composure in front of goal but he showed plenty after 16 minutes at Old Trafford when he conceded Anthony Ellinga’s low cross from a central position in the box. Realizing he had time, Sancho dropped his shoulder to avoid a falling James Milner, before side-footing Alisson and scoring his first United goal since 6 March.

Rashford spent the summer working on his fitness to revive his career but looked unconfident and wasteful in front of goal after starting in the middle as United struggled to translate their lead across the goal line after Sancho’s strike. I failed. That was until substitute Anthony Martial, who had come on for Ellinga at half-time, sent Rashford clear and he coolly finished at the near post for his 60th Premier League goal. He is only the tenth United player to reach this milestone.

Both still have a long way to go – same for United – but the recovery had to start somewhere and here were two performances for both.

3. Liverpool are under pressure to re-enter the transfer market as starts slow.

Liverpool’s absentee list was an obvious problem before kick-off: Caoimhín Kelleher, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones, Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Diogo Jota, Calvin Ramsay and of course the suspended Darwin Nunez. Jurgen Klopp will no doubt continue to argue that Liverpool have enough quality to consistently perform at the same level of performance as last season, but even without the missing players it was a line-up that Should have prepared more than here.

2 relatives

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s defense was once again suspect, especially in the first half. Elinga continued to cause problems for the right-back and set up Sancho’s opening goal. Liverpool also miss Sadio Mane, not only because of his quality in the final third, but also because of his style of pressing without the ball. Nevins showed promise before his red card against Crystal Palace and the injury picture will ease soon but two points from his first three games will put pressure on Liverpool to enter the market before deadline day – Perhaps most obviously in midfield, where he dominated and rethought United.

They have a habit of waiting for favorite targets instead of increasing numbers, this method is the basis of their success. But 10 days of trial await them.

Best and worst actors

Best: Lisandro Martinez

Endured a difficult start to his United career. But he showed the team’s aggression and determination here. It was a close call between him and Varane for the honours, but a well-earned effort from the pair given the extra scrutiny that Maguire’s omission brought on.

Worst: Trent Alexander-Arnold

Elinga had a hard time early on and failed to use the ball as effectively as they often do going forward.

Sometimes strikers think they can’t do that because they have to. Save their energy for attacking moves. That’s a demand nowadays and that’s what you’ve seen. It makes me happy that Rashford and Sancho have done that. Scored goals.” — Man United manager Erik ten Hague.

“Two points from nine is not the start we wanted. We need to pick up our performances individually and collectively. We can’t continue there: it’s easy to talk about it in the changing room but we have to go. . Come out and do it. We can’t concede our goals. They started better than us today. That needs to change.” — Liverpool defender Andy Robertson.manchester 

“[Missing several players] is obviously not good but for tonight’s game, I like the lineup. I saw good performances tonight, obviously not good enough to win the game. “But I think we all know if we score. In any case, the equalizer wouldn’t be the biggest surprise in the world. It’s a deserved draw after a start where United were faster than us.” It was visible but it wasn’t for long and in the situation, a little was to be expected.” — Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
