Klopp's side, however, made a nightmare start. Man United began relentlessly and dominated the opening period. Ten Hag dropped Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw for the tie, and was instantly vindicated.
United were more fluid and aggressive in attack without Ronaldo, and more secure at the back without Shaw and Maguire. Malacia, who replaced Shaw at left-back, also played a part in the opening goal.
The Dutch full-back played a one-two with Christian Eriksen, who cut the ball back for Jadon Sancho. The winger went to shoot but sold James Milner a dummy as Alisson dived and Virgil van Dijk didn't close down the United winger. Sancho casually placed the ball in the net as Old Trafford erupted.
