Liverpool ended their United States tour on a high with Sturridge and Shaqiri providing a decisive impact as second-half substitutes, Sheyi Ojo's cool penalty helping secure bragging rights and three ICC points in front of a huge crowd at Michigan Stadium.
Mane and Salah were withdrawn at half-time as Shaqiri made his Liverpool debut, while Joel Pereira replaced Grant in the United goal, with a pitch invader livening up a boring start to the second period. Mourinho bemoaned the state of some of the rosters in this preseason tournament, saying American fans deserve to see teams at their best.
"I just hope the boys on deserved holidays, they take care of themselves a little bit and I hope somebody wants to do what (Marcus) Rashford and (Phil) Jones decide to do, which is to be back a little bit earlier to try and help the team because for the beginning of the season we are going to be in trouble".
"I gave a list to my club, five names, a few months ago and I wait to see if it's possible to have one of these players". On the contrary, Liverpool ran wave after wave of attacks at United's defence and even if first of the two penalties was a bit dodgy, there can be no complaints about Sturridge's goal, the second penalty and Shaqiri's wonder-goal which is, well, a true contender for goal of the pre-season.
The teams weren't at full strength, but the crowd of 101,254 didn't seem to mind too much. Sadio Mane converted a penalty to open the scoring for Liverpool in the 28th minute.
An off-season arrival from relegated Premier League side Stoke City, Switzerland star Shaqiri came off the bench and netted a sensational overhead kick from 12 yards after Sheyi Ojo and Daniel Sturridge put the Reds ahead.
