Carra: Liverpool's defending 'embarrassing' | Neville: I'm stunned

Jamie Carragher calls Liverpool's defending 'embarrassing' but Gary Neville 'proud' of Man Utd players

Manchester United deservedly beat Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford to give Erik ten Hag his first win as manager; Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford goals earned United the three points; Liverpool's defending was "embarrassing", according to Jamie Carragher; Gary Neville "proud" of Man Utd

Jamie Carragher tore into Liverpool's "embarrassing" defending in their 2-1 defeat at Manchester United, while Gary Neville praised his former side for showing "fight, spirit and energy" after a torrid start to the season.

After a disappointing start to the new campaign for both teams, it was United who produced an impressive performance at Old Trafford to deservedly take the three points and secure Erik ten Hag his first win as manager.

Jadon Sancho opened the scoring in the first half with a fine finish before Marcus Rashford doubled United's lead after the break. Mohamed Salah pulled a goal back late on, but the hosts held on for a morale-boosting victory.

United came under intense scrutiny for last weekend's 4-0 humiliation at Brentford, but it was Jurgen Klopp's side who looked vulnerable defensively on Monday night and Carragher did not hold back in his assessment.

"Liverpool were absolutely shocking defensively. They were not at the races at all," Carragher said.

"Every time United went forward in that first half they looked like they were going to score. It was embarrassing. Liverpool were all over the place.
