Pre Season: Manchester United – Liverpool ‘Full Time: 4-0

Erik ten Hag takes charge of United for the first time today as the club’s pre-season gets underway in Bangkok with a friendly against Liverpool. Despite the lack of competitive stakes, the new manager will no doubt be keen to lay down a marker against a direct rival ahead of the new season.

United arrived in Thailand over the weekend but without Cristiano Ronaldo, who is attempting to engineer a move away from the club less than a year after joining. Fans at the 51,000-seater Rajamangala Stadium, though, should expect to see debuts for the likes of Tyrell Malacia and new Liverpool signings Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho.

Jurgen Klopp and Ten Hag have both insisted that working on match fitness is the name of the game this afternoon, but these two teams will also want to put on a show. Follow along with Standard Sport below!
