Mohamed Salah became Liverpool’s highest goalscorer in Premier League history as the relentless Reds subjected a pathetic Manchester United to a 7-0 humiliation at Anfield in the Premier League.
The Egyptian scored his 128th and 129th goals in the English top flight alongside a pair of braces for fellow attackers Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez – as well as an emotional effort for Roberto Firmino – as Erik ten Hag watched on with abject horror at his side’s capitulation.
Despite the hosts’ relentless start to the game, it was Alisson Becker who had to make the first meaningful save, getting down low to keep out Antony’s curling effort in the ninth minute – Liverpool comfortably dealt with the resulting corner.
A fired-up Liverpool continued to enjoy the lion’s share of the possession, albeit without truly testing David de Gea, who was surprisingly the less busy goalkeeper during the opening exchanges.
Only a few moments after an arm in Salah’s face from Lisandro Martinez went unpunished, Bruno Fernandes met Diogo Dalot’s cross at the back post with a diving header in the 26th minute, but the Portuguese’s effort flashed just wide of Alisson’s far post.
