Like last season, Manchester United once again humiliated their arch rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford yesterday.
The Red Devils dominated the proceedings but could not break Liverpool’s defense in a mundane first half.
The deadlock was broken early on in the second half thanks to a well taken set piece. Blind hammered the ball in the net with his left foot. Having gone behind, the Reds finally decided to push forward in search of a goal and came close a few times.
However, it was United who scored again. Joe Gomez brought Ander Herrera down in the box and the Spaniard made no mistake from the spot and doubled the lead.
In the closing stages of the game, two brilliant goals were scored from Liverpool’s and United’s respective marquee striker signings of the summer.
Benteke scored an absolute stunning overhead kick goal to revive Liverpool’s hopes of a comeback. Minutes later, Martial restored United’s two goal advantage with a brilliant solo goal on his debut.
