Liverpool come out victorious. United looked disconnected at times and were unable to retain possession. Liverpool were given two penalties that upon replay were questionable decisions at best. The one United goal came from a spectacular freekick from Andreas Pereira, here is to hoping he has a chance to prove himself this coming season and isn’t once again sent out on loan by Mourinho.
This match also saw Fred make his first appearance for United and it was… uninspired. He was unable to keep the ball and several of his passes did not meet their intended target.
Next up Manchester United travel to Miami to play Real Madrid before flying to Munich to play Bayern Munich.
