Liverpool Hammer Poor Manchester United To Go Top On EPL Table

Mohamed Salah got back in the goalscoring groove with a brace as Liverpool surged to the Premier League peak with a 4-0 rout of a woeful Manchester United at Anfield.

The Reds were in irrepressible form as they moved two points clear of Manchester City to coil up the title pressure ahead of the Blues match with Brighton on Wednesday night.

United interim manager Ralf Rangnick stationed a back five in an attempt to frustrate Jurgen Klopp’s men and try to bolster their own top four intentions with a positive result, but their game plan was thrown into chaos inside five twinkles when Luis Diaz partake in Salah’s low cross to net his fourth thing for the club.

Both sets of supporters also paid homage to the absent Cristiano Ronaldo in the seventh minute following the death of his baby son, with universal applause ringing out in malignancy of the fierce contest that exists between the clubs.

Liverpool continued to dominate and had United chasing murk in what proved to be a scintillating half of football from Jurgen Klopp’s men, and they deservedly eased two ahead on 22 twinkles.

A slick move ended with Sadio Mane playing a sublime first- time pass on the turn to free Salah to net his first thing from open play since February 19.

United were fortunate to be just the two behind at the interval but bettered compactly in the alternate period and the hosts were thankful to Alisson for a double save that denied both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Elanga.

Liverpool ultimately plant some meter again and put the result beyond any mistrustfulness on 66 twinkles when Mane coolly guided home a low, first- time shot after fine play from Diaz and Andy Robertson.

Salah also rubbed swab in the Red Devils’ injuries when he seized his 30th thing of the season five twinkles from time.

The result keeps the Merseysiders forcefully in the title quest with six matches to play but United drop to sixth, three points adrift of fourth- placed Tottenham having played a game more.

Liverpool are back in Premier League action on Sunday when they drink neighbours Everton to Anfield. Man United visit

Arsenal in a crunch hassle in the battle for fourth spot on Saturday.
