Manchester United suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss at the hand of rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night. Catch up with the highlights and reactions as Jurgen Klopp’s outclassed the visitors to move top of the league.
Many expected a very difficult night for Ralf Rangnick’s men as Liverpool got off to the perfect start with Luis Diaz tapping home after Salah and Mane seemingly walked through the United backline with just five minutes gone.
A second Liverpool goal seemed inevitable and when it arrived, it was of the highest quality.
Joel Matip fizzed the ball into Mane’s feet and the Senegalese lofted a first time pass over the top for Salah.
The Egyptian had not scored for Liverpool from open play since February, but showed no signs of a lack of confidence as he cushioned the ball into his path and slotted low past David de Gea.
Mane then got on the score sheet himself as his volleyed home Diaz’s cross in the second half to put the home side firmly in control.
Salah then rounded off the game as he lifted the ball over De Gea from Diogo Jota’s pass five minutes from time.
“It is embarrassing, it is disappointing, maybe even humiliating,” said Rangnick after the game.
“We have to accept they are six years ahead of us now. When Jurgen Klopp came they changed at the club and lifted not just the team but the club and city to a new level.
“That is what needs to happen with us in the next transfer windows.”
Despite the big victory Klopp had a different moment of the game. In the seventh minute supporters on all sides of Anfield stood for a minute’s applause, while the Liverpool fans sang their own anthem “You’ll never walk alone”.
“That was my moment of the game,” said Klopp. “So many things are much more important in life than football, we feel for Cristiano and his family.”
