Liverpool and Man United level at the break as Mané converts penalty

Liverpool and Man United level at the break as Mané converts penalty”

Mourinho's side performed well enough the first half in front of a 101,000 crowd at "The Big House" University of Michigan Stadium, but Liverpool were far superior as the game wore on.

Sadio Mane converted a penalty to open the scoring for Liverpool in the 28th minute.

Chris Smalling didn't reappear after the warm-up and was replaced with Eric Bailly, who was not even listed in the squad when the teamsheet was published.

It was only a friendly, but no United fan likes to see a "United 1 Liverpool 4" scoreline. Timothy Fosu-Mensah also suggested he could cover for the injured Antonio Valencia and Diogo Dalot at right-back.

United were without new signing Fred during the win but Mourinho hopes that the Brazilian will be able to improve his side's attack this season with his range of short passing.

Liverpool, who dropped off after a lively start, took the lead when Mohamed Salah was awarded a penalty following a challenge from Demetri Mitchell. "We are playing here just to try to survive and to have some not-very-ugly results", he told reporters during a fiery press conference.

Alexis Sanchez scored for Manchester United against AC Milan.

The most interesting thing to happen in the first 15 minutes of the second half was an intruder running onto the pitch.

This summer, Guinea midfielder Naby Keita has arrived from RB Leipzig for about £50m, Brazil midfielder Fabinho has joined from Monaco in a deal that could be worth more than £40m, and Switzerland winger Xherdan Shaqiri has come in from Stoke for £13m.

Martial's son, Swan, was born on Thursday, and United played Liverpool in a pre-season friendly in MI on Saturday.

Sturridge thought he might get the chance to grab a second moments later, but when Ander Herrera barged Andy Robertson in the back on 72 minutes, Ojo won the battle for the ball and stroked his penalty past Pereira.
