Varane smothers Luis Diaz in United’s winover Liverpool

Manchester United have finally ended their winless run against Liverpool in the Premier League after more than four years, as Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford found the net in both halves to give Erik Ten Hag his first win as the Red Devils boss Monday evening.

The 2-1 win at Old Trafford have cooled off the heat of fan discontent, which was brewing after starting the season with a pair of crushing defeats to Brighton and away at Brentford, respectively.

However, the night belonged to the defence, with Harry Maguire getting dropped paved the way for Raphaël Varane and Lisandro Martinez standing out.

Especially with the French World Cup winner, who pulled of the mother of all savage football tackles as he put visiting winger Luis Diaz to the “shadow realm” in the 27th minute. Worth the booking aren’t they? Varane even posted it on his Instagram after their thrilling win. And just to rub it in as his Argentinian partner commented “You Are Awesome”.

And as we are in the age of Social Media, the football netizens have wasted no time turning it into meme game. SportsMania have scoured the web to find the wittiest of the lot.
