    United face title jibe

    Man United fell victim to a cheeky dig from former Liverpool ace Jose Enrique after they crushed the Reds in their pre-season friendly.

    The Red Devils were handed a dazzling trophy for the friendly victory.

    And ex-Red Enrqiue couldn't resist poking fun at United for winning their first trophy in ages as he put it.

    Enrique quipped on Twitter: "First title for a long time. Congratulations Manchester United."

    Klopp on Liverpool loss

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted Man United were the better team after the Reds lost to their bitter adversaries.

    Klopp said after the game: "The result is there, so we have to accept that.

    "But of course I think it's clear we could have scored our goals as well. Then it would have been an even more spectacular game.

    "The goals we gave away for United, we nearly got assists for it, to be honest. But they used the chances and that's how it is. But I saw a lot of really good stuff from my team as well. The game obviously came a little bit early for us and a few of our players.

    "It was pretty clear where we made the mistakes but you have to keep on playing and that's what we did and we could have scored three or four in the last five minutes – but we didn't and that's our fault.

    "Atmosphere great, welcome fantastic, organisation really, really good. But result not."

    Ten Hag on United's win

    Erik ten Hag is pleased with his Man United squad after they destroyed Liverpool in Asia.

    Speaking after United's heroics, the Dutchman said to MUTV: "Of course we are satisfied with today, because I think that was a team with a great spirit.

    “We know we are just starting. We did the press; we made some mistakes in pressing and conceded some chances, but also we created lots.

    “I thought our team played brave, played proactive and we had to play really hard to get out of the mistakes, but we are happy with the first game.

    “I know we have good players,” he added. “We have started the first game and I am happy.”

    Savage Maradona

    Robbie Savage compared his son Charlie to Maradona after the youngster featured in Man United's win over Liverpool.

    Charlie came off the bench as United romped home to a 4-0 win in Asia over their Northern neighbours.

    And dad Robbie was delighted by the Maradona-esque skills he witnessed from his descendant.

    Robbie beamed on social media: "So so proud. I thought you were terrific, a Maradona turn on edge of your own box. Who did you get that from? Finally, a savage that can play."

    Speaking on the game, he said: "I’m very happy.

    “It feels amazing to be here, to wear this shirt and play with these people.

    'The game came too early for us' – Klopp

    Jurgen Klopp has had his say on the 4-0 defeat:

    Obviously the game came a little bit too early for us, for some of our boys, so I think we agree that we saw a lot of good things in this game, but in the decisive moments we were not clear enough with finishing our situations off. We gave massive chances away. Pretty much no-brainers, but United did well in these moments, they finished the situations off.

    Klopp singing the praises of Elliott

    During a largely disappointing evening for Liverpool fans, seeing Harvey Elliott back playing would have been a silver lining. He looked very sharp in the first half, but there is quite some competition for places in Liverpool's front three.

    In the lead up to the game, Liverpool's boss spoke highly of the youngster:

    We should not forget that in the first four games of last season, Harvey Elliot was the best player. He was outstanding.

    A new reign in the rain

    There was a different feel to the Manchester United of last season today in the Bangkok rain. The players looked hungry, passionate and like they wanted to win; a regular criticism of the side under Ralf Rangnick.

    Manchester United fans will head into the Premier League season hopeful that their new boss can change the tides at the club and bring silverware to Old Trafford.

    Silencing the critics

    Many Manchester United players took a lot of criticism last season for a series of poor results. But few took more stick than Fred. Today, he proved fans wrong, producing a wonderful chip over Alisson.

    Out of favour Martial, was also effective up front today, causing Liverpool plenty of problems at the back. Might he still have a future in Manchester?

    Sancho was perhaps the standout performer. Labelled as a 'flop' last season, he was a part of everything United did right today.

    3 teams in 1

    Jurgen Klopp replaced his entire outfield team after Fred scored United's second. He then did the exact same in the 60th minute, fielding his traditionally strongest team.

    In the second half, it was effectively Liverpool's A team vs Manchester United's B team. But Ten Hag's men managed to sustain the pressure and pulled through. Liverpool certainly helped them along the way, missing a multitude of opportunities.

    A day of debuts

    Today saw the first glimpses of several new signings for both clubs.

    Liverpool's Fabio Carvalho was unlucky not to score in the first half, whilst Darwin Nunez came close on a couple of occasions, missing a golden opportunity late in the second half.

    Tyrell Malacia also looked good for United, as he looks to push for a regular place in the starting lineup.

    A satisfied Ten Hag has his say

    Manchester United boss spoke to MUTV after the game, stressing the win should not be overestimated:

    I am satisfied today. It was a team with great spirit and we know we are just getting started. We made some mistakes in the press, we conceded some chances, but we created a lot. I know we have good players. We have started to build a team and I am happy with the first game. It will take a lot of time. I have seen a lot of mistakes. Liverpool played three teams. They were not at their strongest. We will not overestimate this result. But still, I have seen some really good things. A lot of speed and creativity up front.

    No Ronaldo neccessary

    Manchester United were without their club's top scorer last season Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portugese star asked to leave the club.

    However, his services weren't required. Sancho, Fred, Martial and Pellistri all got on the scoresheet to secure the win.
