Liverpool Thrash Man United In Pre-Season Friendly

Liverpool thrashed their fellow English rivals, Manchester United, 4-1 on Saturday at Michigan Stadium in the United States as both clubs continue their preparation ahead of the new Premier League season.

Sadio Mane converted a penalty to open the scoring for Liverpool in the 28th minute.

Manchester United’s 22-year-old midfielder Andreas Pereira tied the game 1-1 in the 31st minute with a free kick.

But Jurgen Klopp’s squad, recently challenged by the opposition coach, Jose Mourinho of Manchester United, to win the big titles in English football, seized command in the second half, starting with Daniel Sturridge’s 66th-minute strike.

Nigeria’s Sheyi Ojo then scored a penalty in the 74th minute to give his team a commanding 3-1 lead.

New recruit Xherdan Shaqiri put a stamp on his lively Liverpool debut with a spectacular bicycle-kick goal off a nice feed from Ben Woodburn to round out the scoring in the International Champions Cup match in front of a crowd of 101,000.
