What Pep Lijnders did will delight Liverpool fans as they get one over Man Utd yet again

Liverpool under-23s defeated Manchester United to bring the curtain down on their Premier League 2 season.

Liverpool under-23s signed off their Premier League 2 campaign with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Manchester United.

And the young Reds' performance came under the watchful eye of assistant manager Pep Lijnders and first-team coach Vitor Matos at the club's Kirkby-based training ground.

Owen Beck, Rhys Williams and Jack Bearne were all on target for Barry Lewtas' side against the Red Devils.

The likes of Tyler Morton, Conor Bradley and Billy Koumetio - who have all featured for Jurgen Klopp's side this season - all started.

As did Leighton Clarkson, who spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers.

Liverpool extended their unbeaten streak to 10 matches to bring the curtain down on their league season.

The Reds are fourth place in Premier League 2 with 40 points, having definitely finished above United and Everton in the table.

They now prepare to face Burnley in the Lancashire Senior Cup final on Wednesday evening.
