Mourinho cannot live in past as Man Utd's problems brutally exposed After Manchester United's chastening loss to Tottenham, chief football writer Phil McNulty sees Jose Mourinho as a man scratching around for answers. After a sharp opening 45 minutes, Salah and Mane were replaced by Sturridge and Shaqiri, and it did not take long for them to show their own qualities. They combined for Liverpool's second, with Shaqiri laying off for Sturridge to apply a trademark delicate finish.
And although Shaqiri arguably stole the show late on with his spectacular overhead effort, Liverpool's attacking depth shone through. With Roberto Firmino - who scored 27 goals last season - still to return, Klopp's forward line looks a force to be reckoned with in Seconds before Liverpool took the lead, Matteo Darmian galloped away down the right flank with Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata seemingly in acres of space in front of him, only for Alberto Moreno to cut out his attempted pass.
It was a theme that continued throughout, and despite moments of brilliance with the ball at his feet, the Chilean's frustrations were too often on show for all to see. Though several heavy challenges from Liverpool's centre-backs did little to help his mood, Sanchez's irritation threatened to boil over towards the end of the first half after he was penalised for handball.
Without the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba - who are taking breaks following their World Cup exploits - Sanchez may have felt United's attacking threat rested solely on his shoulders.
Sanchez summed up his game with 15 minutes left, as after brilliantly holding off two Liverpool defenders, he could only fire high and wide with just the goalkeeper to beat. 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.
It got even better for Liverpool when youngster Ben Woodburn crossed and Shaqiri's spectacular overhead effort flew into the roof of the net from 10 yards out. Returns exclude Bet Credits stake.
