Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford ensure Erik ten Hag taste his first Premier League win after beating arch-rival Liverpool 2-1 in the English top flights encounter at Old Trafford on Monday night.

Former Ajax manager took the bold decision to drop captain Harry Maguire, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Luke Shaw from the starting eleven and was rewarded with a solid performance to earn his first win of the season after back-back defeats to Brighton and Brentford 

Mohamed Salah set up a tense finish when he scrambled in a header with nine minutes left but United survived to give Ten Hag just the sort of triumph he needs to make his mark at Old Trafford.

Manchester United will look to build on this win when they travel to Saint Mary Stadium to face Southampton on their return to action on Saturday while winless Liverpool welcome Bournemouth to Anfield on the same day.
