Manchester United vs Liverpool: Goals, Highlights & Twitter reaction


Manchester United eased to a 3-1 win against fierce rivals, Liverpool this evening. Goals from Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and a wonderful solo effort from Anthony Martial sealed a comfortable win for Louis Van Gaal and his side.

The defeat is set to pile on more pressure on Brendan Rodgers. The former Swansea man has been severely criticised for his tactics and team selection last season. Having spent several millions in the summer window, it seems that nothing has changed.

Liverpool started the game with a negative approach, looking to defend and hit United on the break. However, sloppy passing and poor movement meant that the visitors were camped inside their own half for the majority of the game.

Liverpool lacked any sort of game plan or desire. With the likes of Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino played out of position, the Reds struggled to create anything meaningful throughout the game.

New signing Christian Benteke offered a glimmer of hope with his stunning overhead kick towards the end, but Liverpool failed to capitalize and were pegged back by debutant Martial, who made it 3-1 four minutes from time.

After a boring first 45 minutes, the game burst into life when Daley Blind scored from a fantastic free-kick routine. The lead was doubled when Joe Gomez caught Ander Herrera in the box. The Spaniard converted the penalty and put the game beyond any doubt.

Although Benteke scored late on, Liverpool rarely posed any threats and the game was wrapped up by Anthony Martial, who skinned Martin Skrtel and slotted home.

Without further delay, let us look at some of the cracking goals scored at Old Trafford this evening.
