Within those players, we saw the debuts of Darwin Núñez, who had a few good chances at the second half, and portuguese international Fabio Carvalho. 

A loose ball inside Liverpool's side caused the first goal for Man United. Isaac Mabaya couldn't controll the ball and Jadon Sancho made it 1-0 for them. When the clock hit the 30 minute mark, Liverpool was already 3 goals down, thanks to an incredible chip from brazilian midfielder Fred, and a goal from Anthony Martial, now with Rhys Williams as the goalkeeper. 

The experienced ones couldn't make the difference

Luis Díaz had a great opportunity to level the game when Liverpool was just one goal down, but the ball hit the post and couldn't be. Later in the second half, players like Mohamed Salah and Darwin Núñez entered the pitch to try and make it better for the Reds but they couldn't. The uruguayan striker had a clear shot in front of the goalkeeper but the ended shooting the ball far away. 

And if that wasn't enough, the other uruguayan on the field, Facundo Pellistri, scored the fourth and last goal of the game for Manchester United in a counter attack very well displayed by the Red Devils to make it 4-0 and to take home the win.
