At a boisterous Old Trafford, Manchester United put up an excellent performance to overcome Liverpool and earn manager Erik ten Hag his first Premier League victory.

Ten Hag made the risky choice to bench captain Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo, and he was rewarded with a performance that dispelled the turmoil surrounding Manchester United while keeping Liverpool winless so far this year.

After 16 minutes, Jadon Sancho rightfully gave United the lead with excellent control and calmness, and eight minutes into the second half, Marcus Rashford capitalized on an Anthony Martial pass to break free and beat Alisson.

With nine minutes remaining, Mo Salah scrambled in a header to set up a frantic finale, but United held on to give Ten Hag the kind of victory he needs to leave his imprint at Old Trafford.
