🏁 FULL-TIME: Manchester United 4–0 Liverpool. Ten Hag wins his first game in charge at the club, starting the pre-season with an impressive performance.

⏰ 85–90+' The game is coming to an end with both sides seemingly waiting for the final whistle to come as soon as possible.

⏰ 77–85' Erik ten Hag is visibly frustrated with Alex Telles who continues to struggle in the unfamiliar centre-back role.

⚽ 76' GOAL! Man United 4–0 Liverpool. The Red Devils striker on the counter attack: Eric Bailly races forward and finds Amad who links up with Facundo Pellistri. The Uruguayan scores, and it's four!

⏰ 55–70' Jurgen Klopp is finally throwing in the big names: Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Thiago are on for Liverpool. Meanwhile, Tom Heaton replaces David De Gea who seems to have picked up a knock.

⏰ 45–55' The new-look team is taking its time adapting to the game, so, naturally, the tempo of the match has dropped.

🔥 45' SECOND HALF. We are back underway in Bangkok! A total of ten changes for Man United, here's the second half XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Telles, Malacia, Savage, Iqbal, Van de Beek, Pellistri, Amad, Elanga.

Half-time player ratings:

Superb: Sancho - 8.5, Fernandes - 8.0 Martial - 7.5, De Gea - 7.5.

Good: Fred - 7.0, Varane - 7.0, Dalot - 6.5, Lindelof - 7.0

Average: Rashford - 6.0, Shaw - 5.5, McTominay - 5.0

Half-time!: That has been a lovely half from United. They've pressed the Liverpool players well, deploying impressive intensity and an aggressive style that thas paid dividends. Sancho, Fred and Martial have all scored nice goals and made a nice impression for themselves.

36'-45': The intensity of the game has slowed down slightly in the last 10 minutes or so. Meanwhile, a lot of substitutes are practicing in the touchline, so expect a number of subs at half time.

FourFourJordan @Twitter: "Sat here buzzing that our players are actually trying and running. I don’t fans of normal football clubs understand how much we’ve been starved of the basics."

33-36': Dalot almost makes it 4-0! He bombs forward on the right and is sent into the box by Sancho, before he takes a shot that hits the bar!

SamuelLuckhurst @Twitter: "Dalot hits the post. More good work by Sancho after a fabulous pass by Fernandes."

33': 3-0! Martial scores! United are on fire here! The Frenchman robs a Liverpool defender of the ball and soars forward with the ball before cooly chipping over Alisson.

Avinash08 @Reddit: "10-0 I want! Revenge for everything."

MarkGoldbridge @Twitter: "What a finish by Martial!!! Pressing, drive, finish. Get in lad."

30': GOALLL! FRED SCORES! United break open the Liverpool backline with another swift move. Joe Gomez barely manages to clear it away to Fred outside the box, and the midfielder chips over Alisson to score a beauty. 2-0!

UnitedPeoplesTV @Twitter: "2-0. Fred has just scored an absolutely outrageous goal. Chip from 25 yards with his right foot. Outrageous."

_RM78 @Reddit: "Fred the best Brazilian in the world. Wait, was that on his right foot as well? Can't not love this guy."

23'-26': The Red Devils create another move from the right, with Sancho playing Fernandes in the byline. Bruno picks out McTominay in the box, but his shot is held by Alisson.

Dont_eat_Apples @Reddit: "Loving Bruno and Sancho in this system. de Jong is so necessary."

18'-23': Liverpool nearly gift United another goal as Nat Phillips loses the ball in a bad area, allowing Sancho to go through. Jadon picks out Rashford in the box, but Marcus poorly hits his shot straight at a defender.

SamuelLuckhurst @Twitter: "Another calamity in the Liverpool defence and Sancho tees up Rashford with the goal at his mercy but he seemed to hit the ground first. Sancho having a fine half."

Icedale @Reddit: "Martial and Sancho seem really fit. Rashford continues his form.. Hope he can improve in the coming games."

18': Comedy of errors allows United to keep their lead in tact after a scary moment. Liverpool had gone through in numbers in the attack and had a few swipes at goal, but just couldn't beat De Gea and Fabio Carvalho even hit the bar. Playing with fire here.

SamuelLuckhurst @Twitter: "#mufc's goal leads a charmed life as the ball strikes the post twice in a minute. Carvalho (I think) had the first shot and Diaz the second. Enetertaining enough game, with United overcommitting at times and Liverpool careless a the back."

12'-17': United are causing this Liverpool side big problems with their high pressing style. Rashford wins the ball back inside their half and plays a nice one-two with Martial, but his shot hits the side-netting!

Kittyboomboomm @Reddit: "Rashy clearly wants his comeback."

12': GOALLLL!! SANCHOO!! That's 1-0 to United! The Red Devils create a nice move by moving the ball from left to right and Bruno sends in a cross, that is not cleared and falls straight to Sancho, who drills one in from close range.

UnitedPeoplesTV @Twitter: "Sancho! 1-0. Lovely interplay from Sancho and Shaw in the build-up, ball falls to Sancho and he tucks it right into the bottom corner. Great finish."

Hi-Tech_Luddite @Reddit: "I know it's a friendly but the team shape is so good."

10': Liverpool are piling on the pressure now and De Gea's forced to make his third save so far by parrying out a shot from Luis Diaz.

MarkGoldBrigde @Twitter: "McFred not coming to get the ball off the CB's again every time. We need De Jong or Garner."

👀1'-10': United have started with a very high line with the centre-backs often coming into the opposition box. It seems like a 4-2-3-1 formation with Sancho on the right and Rashford on the left, but the Red Devils are pressing well.

SamuelLuckhurst @Twitter: "#mufc playing a very high line with and without the ball. Varane's just won a throw-in inside Liverpool's third. There were six United players in Liverpool's third for the first press but they eased off in a similar scenario the second time. Fred's just spurned a good opening."
