Salah nets hat-trick as Pogba sees red on dark day for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men

MANCHESTER UNITED were thrashed on home soil by a rampant Liverpool to pile the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Mo Salah all netted in a horror first half for the hosts, with Sir Alex Ferguson watching on grimly from the stands.

It was the first time in 70 YEARS that Man Utd trailed 4-0 at half-time in a league game.

Salah wrapped up his hat-trick just after the break, before Cristiano Ronaldo’s consolation was ruled out by VAR for offside.

And to make matters even worse, Paul Pogba saw a straight red after a wild challenge.

  • SUBLIME SALAH

    Yet again, Mo Salah steals the headlines as he became the first player since Cristiano Ronaldo to score a hat-trick at Old Trafford and the the first Liverpool member since Dirk Kuyt in 2011.

    His goal scoring record speaks volume because the Egyptian has now made it 10 consecutive matches where he has bagged at least one goal which has put Salah as the highest scoring African in the Premier League history stealing the crown off Didier Drogba.

    Despite all of that, the 29-year-old was able to still remain humble when talking about his team’s result let alone his own form.

    I think it is great to win 5-0 away. We knew before the game it was going to be tough if we didn’t play our game and if we didn’t play our football.

    We had in our head that we had to give 100% and we had to dominate the game and I think we did it.

    To be fair as much as the team keeps winning, I am more than happy so I am always trying to give assists.

    First one I could have gone alone but I chose to give it to Naby so I think I am trying to always give my best for the team to win which is the most important thing.

    64% possession to 36%.

    19 shots to 12.

    The only stat which United did go on to win was the amount of bookings received.

  • FIVE ALIVE

    The Reds scintillating form continues as they become on the second team in English top-flight history to win two successive away games with a 5+ goal margin without reply.

    How ironic that the only other team to achieve this is their opponents today, Manchester United.

    Football is a crazy sport.

  • MAN UTD 0-5 LIVERPOOL

    87. Liverpool are just toying with their opposition at the moment.

    Whereas Manchester United are just hoping the game can end right now.

  • SMUG SOLSKJAER

    The face of a deflated man who is probably dreading going on social media after the game.

  • MAN UTD 0-5 LIVERPOOL

    83. Gary Neville on the punditry is frustrated with why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer went with the exact same team who went 2-0 down to Atalanta.

    And the Manchester United legend mentioned that people need to stand up and take responsibility for today.

  • MAN UTD 0-5 LIVERPOOL

    81. HOW HAS HE MISSED THAT?!

    Edinson Cavani who has come on the field in replace of Bruno Fernandes had an unbelievable chance to get his name on the scoresheet at least.

    But the Uruguayan hit the crossbar from virtually a couple of yards out.

    How he didn’t score I will never know.

  • MAN UTD 0-5 LIVERPOOL

    80. Sadio Mane is hungry for a goal himself.

    The Senegalese picked up the ball in the box and instead of laying it off to Curtis Jones who was in a much better position, Mane decided to spin and shoot.

    If that flew in, Jones couldn’t complain but it was blocked with ease to the frustration of the Englishman.

    75. If things weren’t bad enough for Manchester United, Jurgen Klopp is not letting up with this next substitution.

    Everyone bar Cristiano Ronaldo is behind the ball to try deter Liverpool from getting a sixth.

  • MAN UTD 0-5 LIVERPOOL

    69. OH MY WORD WHAT A SAVE DE GEA!

    Trent Alexander-Arnold had all the time in the world to lift his head up and try pick out the top corner.

    And but for the outstretched Spaniard in-between Manchester United’s stick, it would have been six.

  • GET WELL SOON KETIA

    Naby Keita opened the scoring but has to be forced off on a stretcher due to the reckless challenge from Paul Pogba.

  • MAN UTD 0-5 LIVERPOOL

    66. At this point the game just feels lifeless.

    Liverpool are comfortably passing the ball around and 10-man Manchester United can’t get anywehre near them.

  • MAN UTD 0-5 LIVERPOOL

    64. The Liverpool fans are sarcastically singing ‘Ole’s at the wheel’ as they watch their team humiliate Man United at Old Trafford.

    Things could get bad for the Norwegian manager in these next 24 hours.
