The best photos as Liverpool hammer Man United 4-1 in final match of the US tour

29 July 2018

Liverpool repeated their 2009 achievement of beating Man United 4-1 on Saturday night, ending their US tour with a bang.


The Reds had lost just once this summer going into the game but Jose Mourinho’s side would arguably be their sternest test yet.

Fans were out in force at Michigan Stadium, with over 100,000 packed inside the gigantic venue.

Sadio Mane nonchalently stroked home a penalty to give Liverpool a deserved first-half – his second spot-kick in the space of three days.

Andreas Pereira made it 1-1 with an admittedly superb free-kick, but substitute Daniel Sturridge scored a clinical effort with his first touch of the game.

The striker is loving life at the minute, having seemingly rescued his Reds career…

After Sheyi Ojo scored his own nerveless penalty, it was left to debutant Xherdan Shaqiri to make the headlines with a ridiculous acrobatic strike.
