Second-half goals help PL2 Division 1 leaders extend advantage with victory over Manchester United

Liverpool moved five points clear of Everton at the top of Division 1 after a 3-1 win over bottom club Manchester United in front of a crowd of 4,557 at Leigh Sports Village.

A strong Liverpool side, including Danny Ings, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Marko Grujic and Jon Flanagan, went ahead in the 14th minute through Ovie Ejaria.

Joshua Bohui set up James Wilson to equalise for United on the hour mark, but Grujic quickly restored Liverpool's lead by heading in Ben Woodburn's corner.

Harry Wilson wrapped up their seventh win in eight matches with a fierce shot. 

Both teams play again on Sunday 29 October with United, who are two points adrift of 11th-placed Chelsea, facing Sunderland at Eppleton Colliery Welfare Ground and Liverpool hosting Leicester City at Tranmere.
