Little cheer for Mourinho with Liverpool defeat, Matic news

Andreas Pereira of Manchester United passes the ball during an International Champions Cup match between Manchester United and Liverpool at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor Michigan USA

Pereira, who grew up watching the free-kicks of his Brazilian compatriot Juninho Pernambucano for Lyon, had asked Alexis Sanchez for permission to take it.

Shaqiri's former teammate Charlie Adam, who often appears as a pundit, also accused him of going missing when the Potters were relegated from the Premier League last season.

United have brought in highly-rated central midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer, as well as promising right-back Diogo Dalot from Porto, but Mourinho says he wants more additions.

The defeat to Liverpool was United's first of their pre-season campaign.

The score was 1-1 at half-time, though Grant was again needed to save from Virgil Van Dijk after 43 minutes.

"I am just happy to be back fit, feeling good and looking forward to the start of the season".

After Sheyi Ojo scored his own nerveless penalty, it was left to debutant Xherdan Shaqiri to make the headlines with a ridiculous acrobatic strike.

Liverpool's fourth was their most spectacular, an 81st minute overhead free kick from Shaqiri. "That is not normal".

Fans were out in force at Michigan Stadium, with over 100,000 packed inside the huge venue.

Mourinho's mood is very different.

Shaqiri is one four new signings at Liverpool following the arrivals of Alisson, Naby Keita and Fabinho, and Klopp does not plan to add any defenders before the transfer window closes.

What followed was a little argument between the two players resulting in James Milner having to pull Salah away. I think my score points speak for themselves. Competing in the International Champions Cup clash in Carson, California, the Premier League club went on to beat the Serie A club with a 9-8 lead in the penalty shootout that saw a total of 26 kicks from the spot. If it's not, it's not.

"If it is possible, good, if it is not possible we keep fighting and working and believing in the players that we have".
