Man United v Liverpool: 5-0 win insane

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has said their 5-0 win at Manchester United was unexpected and “insane”.

Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick on either side of half-time after Naby Keita and Diogo Jota had given Liverpool a 2-0 lead in the opening 13 minutes. The win takes Liverpool to second, a point behind Chelsea – was their biggest victory at Old Trafford.

“It is a really good day – a big one. This is a little chapter in the history of the club. People will talk about it in the future because it won’t happen again in a long time, if ever,” said Klopp.

“What can I say? Did I expect that? No. The result is insane. It is special but we don’t celebrate like crazy, we have respect for the opponents.

“We were lucky in some moments, United are not in their best moment,” he added.

The result, which was only Klopp’s second win at Old Trafford since becoming Liverpool manager in 2015, means Liverpool remains the only unbeaten side in the Premier League.

Salah’s hat-trick took him to 15 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this season. The Egyptian, who has now scored in his last 10 games has scored 142 goals in 215 games for Liverpool

He flicked home Keita’s pull-back for his first goal, before curling a left-footed effort past David de Gea at his near post in first-half injury time.

His hat-trick was completed when he latched onto a Jordan Henderson through ball and dinked over the advancing De Gea.

Reacting to the win, Salah, who is the first opposition player to score a Premier League treble at Old Trafford described it as a great one.

“I think it is great to win 5-0 here. We knew before the game it would be tough if we did not play our game.

“We know what it takes to win the Premier League, we did it two years ago.

“From our heads from pre-season, we need to win the Premier League and hopefully we go for that.”
