Manchester United players stepped up in some fashion, registering a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The feeling before the ball was kicked-off was one of anger against the club’s owners, the Glazers, who signed and unveiled Casemiro before the game. The Brazilian’s appearance in the stadium didn’t have much effect, as fans continued their chants against the way United have been run.

The incompetency from top to bottom was also the reason why the United faithful weren’t very confident going into the match. The last time Liverpool visited the Red side of Manchester, they scored five goals without any answer.

However, Ten Hag and his players stunned everyone, including the visitors, with their display.

 

United are now above their fierce rivals on the Premier League table, but the club hierarchy shouldn’t forget the fact that this was only their first win of the season. More signings are needed to produce similar performances.

Casemiro will undoubtedly add a lot of experience and physicality in that midfield, but United still need a midfielder who can retain the ball with ease.

Towards the end of the first-half and in the last 15 minutes of the fixture, Liverpool dominated possession and even found a goal through Mo Salah to cut the deficit.
