United kick-start their season without Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldoimage source: google
Liverpool, England - Man United defeated Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford to put an end to a disorganised start to the season
and rekindle their campaign. Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford were key factors in the victory.
The hosts experienced some jitters after Mohamed Salah's consolation goal in the closing 10 minutes, but United manager Erik ten Hag is rewarded for his efforts to turn around a team that is in shambles with the win.
Before the game, some 10,000 supporters rallied outside Old Trafford to demand permanent change at Manchester United by denouncing the Glazer family's ownership.
However, after the teams were revealed, Erik ten Hag proved he could ruffle some feathers much sooner.
It takes some self-belief to exclude your club captain and your recognisable centre striker for a game of this magnitude.
However, it was the first occasion since January 15 that United did not start with Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire.
In actuality, it was only Ronaldo's fourth Premier League game since his summer return to United from Juventus.
