Shaqiri lights up comprehensive Liverpool win over Manchester United

Xherdan Shaqiri’s stunning overhead kick was the highlight as Liverpool claimed a comprehensive 4-1 win over Manchester United in front of over 100,000 fans at The Big House in Michigan.

Jose Mourinho was missing a number of key figures, with Jurgen Klopp able to pick players like Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah from the start. There were also club debuts for Brazilian midfielder Fred and new Liverpool summer signing Xherdan Shaqiri.

Mane gave the Anfield side the lead from the spot after a foul by Demetri Mitchell, with Andreas Pereira equalising not long after through an astonishing freekick from 20 yards out. However, it was Liverpool who took a grip of things in the second half.

With Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge introduced off the bench, the Reds scored three unanswered goals after the break. First, Sturridge found the bottom corner of the net with his first touch before Sheyi Ojo converted another penalty and Shaqiri found the back of the net with an acrobatic overhead kick.
