Manchester United vs Liverpool FC
Manchester United keep up a competitive and fighting spirit and end up beating Liverpool by 2-1 on Monday at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have opened their account in the Premier League this season.
Courtesy the goals of Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford, the victory will bring much respite to new boss Erik ten Hag, who made a difficult selection by dropping star player Cristiano Ronaldo and the regular captain Harry Maguire.
Egypt captain Mohammed Salah scored a 81st goal for Liverpool, but it was not enough to get them over the opponents at their home ground.
“The demand is for everyone, including the manager. We have to deliver. You have an obligation to the club, to the fans. This is a massive club with a huge fanbase, and we have to deliver that. We have to act as a team, and every individual, every day, has to give their best. That is the demand for the manager and also for the team.” said ten Hag on the dropping of CR7 and Englishman Maguire.
When asked particularly about Ronaldo’s own role in the side, he added, “I think he can (adapt), and in his whole career and under several managers, he did. Several styles and systems. He always performed. Why can’t he do this?”
