boss Erik ten Hag has spoken out after his side’s stirring 2-1 win over at Old Trafford on Monday night. The Red Devils have gone into the game as underdogs after previously losing their first two matches. But they managed to pick up all three points at the third time of asking, with both Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford on target.
Manchester United were too strong for Liverpool on Monday night.
The Red Devils decided to make four changes from the side that were battered 4-0 by Brentford last week, with the likes of Harry Maguire, Fred, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luke Shaw all dropping out.
And it led to United producing their best display in recent memory.
Sancho opened the scoring in the first half, showing great composure to slot past Alisson Becker.
And Rashford beat Alisson in the second half, with Mohamed Salah then netting a consolation for the visitors to spark a frantic finale.
Ten Hag was asked about the display from his team in the aftermath and accidentally swore, forcing an apology from Sky Sports in the process.

“Last week hurt a lot and we knew we had to bounce back and tonight we showed the fans what we can do.

“It means a lot to all of us, you can see how the fans are reacting. We got the three points but on to the next one.
“We just have to produce like today in every single game. Happy we got the three points and we move on.”

The England international said: “We just started the game with a higher tempo, we was tired towards the end, we kept going, stuck at it and got a goal back and we didn’t fold – we kept defending well.
“It was an enjoyable game to play in.
“It’s a massive game for the club, I’ve always said regardless of the circumstances you’re in a game against Liverpool.
“It’s massive no matter what. To get the win is massive, we’ve not done so well starting the season so it’s good to pick up the first three points.”

“Just keep going and focus on the next game.”
On being switched to the left wing in the second half, he continued: “It’s just the versatility we have in the team especially in attack.
“The game was going well, in the first-half we were attacking some good spaces but we weren’t quite getting the end product we deserve in the first half.
“In the second half, slightly less clearcut chances but we done better with them, for us to change, chop and change positions like that is always a positive.”
