Liverpool thrash Manchester United in International Champions Cup

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said he hopes one target from the list of five options he gave the club will arrive before the 9 August transfer deadline.

The former Valencia boss slammed Shaqiri's attitude back in June, before the player moved to Liverpool, saying: "I'm not a fan of Shaqiri to be honest with you".

An off-season arrival from relegated Premier League side Stoke City, Switzerland star Shaqiri came off the bench and netted a sensational overhead kick from 12 yards after Sheyi Ojo and Daniel Sturridge put the Reds ahead. Besides him, United are also understood to hold an interest in Spurs' Toby Alderweireld, although the final transfer value remains a concern in signing either player.

United continue their International Champions Cup (ICC) campaign against Real Madrid in Miami on Wednesday (01:05 BST), before facing Bayern Munich in a friendly at the Allianz Arena the following Sunday (19:15 BST). " he asked a reporter at the post-match press conference". We still played simple and quick, kept them moving. Manchester United did have Alexis Sanchez in the lineup, but this version of the team still looked overmatched against Liverpool.

Responding to a question about Chilean worldwide Alexis Sanchez's performance against Liverpool, Mourinho suggested the pre-season tour had been of little value, adding that the team were just trying to "survive".

And on the quality of United's squad for the tour, he added: "We are not playing here to improve the team, the dynamic or our routines. We are here just to survive and to have some not very ugly results", he said.

"We don't have wingers, we don't have strikers".

"And if Chelsea can get a proper centre-forward in I think they will be too, so long as they keep Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard".

"In relation to this game, we have four or five players who are dead because they care for the team".

"And the poor man is there trying his best with the frustration of someone who wants more".

"Eric Bailly was not going to play and when he saw that [Chris] Smalling was injured in the warm up, he decided by himself that he didn't want another kid on the pitch".

United had seen a goal disallowed for offside when Juan Mata converted Alexis Sanchez's pass, but it was Mane who opened the scoring from the spot after Demetri Mitchell felled Mohamed Salah. The short term need for players to return to training early has to balance with the need to ensure they are recharged and rested after the World Cup.
