Manchester United vs. Liverpool live score, updates, highlights and lineups as Erik ten Hag drops Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United and Liverpool never lack motivation to thwart their old rivals.

However, with both teams going into their first meeting of the season without a win, this heavyweight fight was given extra spice.

Erik ten Hag’s tenure got off to a disastrous start with two defeats out of two, while Jurgen Klopp oversaw back-to-back draws that have seen his side fall far short of the high standards they have set in recent years.

Can both bring a win on board to finally kick-start their seasons? Or could they play out a stalemate that leaves both in three wins early in the campaign.

Sporting News will provide live updates and commentary from the game below.
