Luis Diaz opened the scoring for Liverpool after Manchester United used an interesting line of defence.
Liverpool are known for their pace of progress in the front three, all of which are killers on the counter-attack. Manchester United decided to play a fine streak, and with Harry Maguire out, he left a huge gaping hole in the back.
One simple ball over the top and Liverpool was inside with Mohamed Salah, who just had to roll the ball into Diaz’s path to cash in on the net.
