Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford were enough to hold off United’s bitter rivals and earn their first points of the Premier League season, despite an 81st-minute Mohamed Salah header causing a few late nerves.

Victory lifts United above Liverpool in the primitive league table, with the Reds still winless.

United had been the side under more pressure heading into the match following a 4-0 reverse at Brentford last week, but Ten Hag masterminded an impressive turnaround – one he attributed to his team’s approach to the game.

Attitude key for Ten Hag

“We can talk about tactical, but it’s all about attitude,” Ten Hag told Sky Sports.

“Now you see we bring attitude on the pitch; there was communication, there was fighting spirit. You see what they can achieve.

“I wanted a different approach, I wanted a different attitude, and that is what they bring on the pitch. That is what makes me satisfied, but it is only the start. We have to keep humble, and I think we can play much better if we have a little more composure, give an extra pass.

“We have to act and make sure you are a team and battle, and also be brave. Give each other options when we have the ball, so it’s not only about spirit.”
