Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford last night, showing a complete turnaround from the previous two performances this season.
Christian Eriksen, playing in his first big game for the club, spoke to the official site about why the display was so different.
I think our intensity compared to the Brentford game [was the biggest difference]. Obviously, we made a few mistakes against them that gave them the advantage and, today, we started on the front foot and were the better team in the first half.
I think it [the togetherness] started after losing two games. This has been about coming together and getting back to the basics. We needed to show that we were better doing the basics and I think we did that today.
Of course, with the South American and a bit of Spanish style there was a lot of passion towards the defensive side, but also the offensive side, we tried to do whatever we could. We have some very quick players and how we played today, and how Liverpool play, suited us as well. It’s great to play with players who want to play football and run.
