Jadon Sancho opened his account for the pre-season tour by scoring Manchester United’s first goal of the summer against Liverpool with a clever finish.
The England international scored five goals in his first season at Old Trafford, so he will naturally aim to improve that area of his game to become a more prolific attacker in the Premier League.
It’s been a lively start to the game with Liverpool enjoying the majority of chances on goal. David de Gea has been made work between the posts, but he’s stood tall every time and has yet to be beaten.
United kept plugging away and it is clear that they are pressing more than last season.
United have attacked in numbers from the start but Liverpool failed to defend a crossing attempt into the box when Jadon Sancho placed his shot past Alisson.

United have created more chances since scoring the goal with Ten Hag’s high press causing Jurgen Klopp problems.
That said, there was just a goalmouth scramble and Luis Diaz kicked fresh air when he had a shot clear on goal.
This could go any way!
