Liverpool thumped Man United 4-1 in Ann Arbor on Saturday, with Xherdan Shaqiri earning the supporters’ acclaim after an outrageous debut goal.

Man United 1-4 Liverpool

Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor
Pre-Season Friendly (7)

Goals: Mane pen (’28), Pereira (’30), Sturridge (’64), Ojo pen (’73), Shaqiri (’82)

The Reds took on their biggest rivals in the last match of their US tour and it was to be an enjoyable occasion as 101,000 fans watched on at the Michigan Stadium.

Sadio Mane‘s penalty gave Jurgen Klopp‘s side the lead, but Andreas Pereira equalised with an unstoppable free-kick before half-time.

Liverpool absolutely bossed proceedings in the second half, with Daniel Sturridge, Sheyi Ojo and Shaqiri all finding the net.

The Reds were comfortably the better side and it further suggests they will be Man City‘s biggest title rivals this season, even though key men were missing from both teams.

Here’s how Reds supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Shaqiri’s stunning overhead left fans drooling, as did his all-around performance……

Liverpool’s excellent display was also lauded by the masses……

“Excellent pre-season performance from all. 4-1 wasn’t a reflection of the game as we should have had double figures, dominant throughout.”
