That's all for today, goodbye!
United's pre-season tour continues in Australia, where they will play Melbourne Victory on Friday. Liverpool travel to Singapore next, and they face another Premier League side in Crystal Palace on Friday.
Erik ten Hag's first match in charge of United ends in a 4-0 win over Liverpool in a pre-season friendly. His side were 3-0 up at the break; Sancho broke the deadlock early on before Fred doubled the lead with a lovely chip from outside the box. Martial added the third from close range. It was a much quieter second half, with lots of changes from both sides, and it was Pellistri that finished things off with a cool finish in the 76th minute.

FULL-TIME: MANCHESTER UNITED 4-0 LIVERPOOL.
90' + 2'

Liverpool are still pushing for a late goal with Robertson whipping a dangerous cross in from the left. It's just too high for Nunez at the far post though and Telles hooks it away.
OFF THE POST! Salah squeezes a curling shot between the two United defenders in front of him which thumps off the outside of the far post and bounces back into the box. Nunez reacts quickly but fires his shot high over the bar from close range.

PELLISTRI SCORES! Bailly cut out Konate's throughball into the box and set United on a lightning-quick counter by sliding in Pellistri. He plays a clever one-two with Diallo and coolly slots it past Adrian when he gets it back. 4-0 United!
A rare break for United sees Iqbal lift a great ball over the top to Elanga. Van Dijk tries to take it away from him, but he gets away and knocks it past Adrian before toppling over the keeper as the offside flag goes up.
It's all Liverpool at the moment and Robertson has space to run into down the left. He chooses to curl in an early cross instead, but Wan-Bissaka gets a touch to help it into Heaton's gloves.
GOOD SAVE! Wan-Bissaka runs straight into Hill, who nicks it off him and switches play out to Nunez on the right. He chests it down before volleying a good cross into the six-yard box, but Heaton pushes it away.

De Gea is the latest player to go off, with Heaton coming on to replace him.
A long ball over the top from Thiago is being chased down by Nunez, but De Gea just beats him to it. The Liverpool fans are claiming the keeper carried it out of his box, but the referee blows for a foul against Nunez.

Liverpool win another corner after Jones' cross is blocked by Wan-Bissaka. Milner slips as he takes it, but Savage slices at the clearance. He gets lucky with the bounce as it misses Frauendorf and he has a second chance to get it away.

There's a change for Liverpool at the break. Alisson is taken off and replaced by Adrian.
Ten Hag will be pleased with what he's seen in his first match so far, but it's expected that he'll make wholesale changes at half-time. Klopp has already changed all of his outfield players but is likely to make more alterations. His side has created some good chances, but without a clinical edge so far.
United take a 3-0 lead over Liverpool into half-time. Sancho opened the scoring with a low drive into the bottom corner early on before Fred doubled their advantage with a lovely chip over everyone into the bottom corner. Just three minutes later, Martial made it 3-0, firing his shot into the roof of the net. Carvalho and Dalot both hit the woodwork, with De Gea also making a few good saves to keep Liverpool out.

Morton gets the game underway for Liverpool!
The teams are out on the pitch, with kick-off just moments away!
Liverpool have won the last three meetings with United in all competitions.
Jurgen Klopp goes for a blend of experience and youth here today. Alisson, Gomez, Henderson and Firmino all start, with youngsters Mabaya and Chambers making their first senior starts. Carvalho makes his Liverpool debut, but fellow new signing, Nunez, starts on the bench.
It's a fairly familiar line-up for United, one that's not too dissimilar from the one that played their final game of last season under Ralf Rangnick. Ten Hag doesn't start new signing, Malacia, who is on the bench. Martial is given the chance to lead the line through the middle. Club captain Harry Maguire misses out with a knock.
