Jadon Sancho put Manchester United 1-0 up against Liverpool at Old Trafford with a composed first-half finish.
  • Sancho took his time to shoot
  • Van Dijk failed to close him down
  • United grabbed their first lead of season

WHAT HAPPENED? Sancho cooly finished off a patient Manchester United attack in the 16th minute. Taking Anthony Elanga's pass in the box, he faked out James Milner with a clever drag-back before slotting a shot calmly into the bottom corner.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The goal capped off a strong start to the game for Manchester United and set them on route for an excellent victory. Marcus Rashford doubled United's lead after the break, and the hosts managed to hold on to a 2-1 win after Mohamed Salah pulled one back after the end.
