Manchester United worst defeat to Liverpool

Manchester United suffered one of their worst defeats in recent memory as rivals Liverpool piled pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 5-0 thrashing.

Mohamed Salah crowned an outstanding individual display with a hat-trick and an assist as Liverpool recorded their biggest away win against Manchester United.

Liverpool raced into an early 2-0 lead, Keita arrowing Salah’s pass home for a fifth-minute opener before Diogo Jota added a second from Arnold’s cross eight minutes later.

Salah then took centre stage, hitting a rising shot from Keita’s cross on the 38th minute before he put Liverpool 4-0 up at the break with a great finish from Jota’s assist.

Paul Pogba was brought in for Mason Greenwood at half-time.

However, the lingering hopes United had of a second-half comeback were squashed when Salah claimed his third and Liverpool’s fifth, finishing with an assist from Jordan Henderson.

It was the first hat-trick scored by an away player at Old Trafford in the Premier League since Dennis Bailey for QPR on 1 January 1992.

Man United’s misery was compounded on the 61st minute when Pogba was sent off.

Liverpool’s second consecutive 5-0 away win puts them in second on 21 points, one point behind Chelsea.

Man United dropped to seventh with 14 points.
