Manchester United hosted rivals Liverpool last night at Old Trafford. The Red Devils completed the entire duration with a 2:1 score. Prior to the game, the two teams had been struggling in the English Premier League, especially in their opening games. Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford got the two goals for Manchester United, with Mohammed Salah earning the consolation for Liverpool.
One of the two goals scored by Manchester United appears to have been scored from an offside position. Marcus Rashford’s goal, which is the second for Manchester United looks like coming from an offside position, per pictures of the game.
While Manchester United were running for the goal, Marcus Rashford was put through by a colleague. On the run to get the ball, Marcus Rashford appears to have his leg ahead of his marker. Pictorial evidence shows the Manchester United forward stepping ahead of his marker as they were all sprinting for the ball.
The win is expected to boost the confidence of Manchester United, after enduring lackluster start to the season. Subsequent games could define how they will fare in this season.
Manager of Manchester United Erik Ten Hag has expressed disappointment in how they kicked off the season but looks forward to turning things around.
