Erik Ten Haag’s tenure as Manchester united boss got off to a blistering start as United Thrashed Liverpool 4-0.

United opened the scoring after Jadon Sancho hit a well placed curler beyond the reach of Alisson’s reach. Fred doubled the lead with an audacious chip before French forward Anthony Martial added another three minutes later.

Liverpool’s misery was compounded when Uruguayan youngster Facundo Pellistri added a fourth in the 76th minute. The win was a morale booster to Ten Haag who is seeking to rebuild a united side that performed dismally in the 2021-2022 season.

United will continue their preparations for the new season in Australia where they will face Melbourne Victory, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

Liverpool are set to take on Crystal Palace in Singapore before heading back to Europe to take on Red Bull Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg.
