Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford scored as Manchester United defeated Liverpool 2-1 on Monday at Old Trafford to earn manager Erik ten Hag his first victory.
United had slipped to the bottom of the Premier League at the beginning of the weekend, but on a big night for their new Dutch manager, they passed Liverpool.
With three games into the new season and Jurgen Klopp’s team still winless, Liverpool’s anticipated title push is evaporating quickly.
In protest against the Glazer family, the club’s owners, who have presided over a decade of deterioration, United supporters marched on Old Trafford to start the evening.
Following a humiliating 4-0 loss at Brentford the previous weekend, a social media boycott campaign that urged fans to attend the game failed to materialise.
But for the entire 90 minutes, cries of “we want Glazers out” persisted, despite the celebration of a first league victory against Liverpool since 2018 for the team.
