Liverpool’s disappointing start to the 2015-16 campaign continued, as they went down 3-1 to United at Old Trafford.
After a goalless first half, Netherlands international Daley Blind put the Red Devils in the lead in the 49th minute.
Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera doubled United’s advantage from the penalty spot in the 70th minute, before Christian Benteke gave Liverpool hopes of a comeback with a spectacular overhead kick.
However, debutant Anthony Martial made it 3-1 to Louis van Gaal’s side in the 86th minute with a wonderful solo effort.
Former Liverpool attacker Garcia was following the game, and he was far from impressed with the performance of Brendan Rodgers’ team at Old Trafford.
Can't believe Rodgers used benteke in the same way lambert did? Unreal naivety to think he would get more out of him leaving him isolated!!— David Thompson (@77thomo) September 12, 2015
Over the course of the 90 minutes at Old Trafford, visiting Liverpool had 44% of the possession, took eight shots of which four were on target, and earned four corners.
