Manchester United was thoroughly defeated on their home soil by Liverpool as they lost with 5-0.
Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Mo Salah all scored in the first half.
There was a fiery end to the half that saw Ronaldo and Fred yellow-carded before Liverpool grabbed a fourth in fadded-on time as Salah got a second, when left alone to steer a Jota pass wide of De Gea.
Salah wrapped up his hat-trick just after the break, before Cristiano Ronaldo’s consolation goal was ruled out by VAR for offside.
To make matters worse, Paul Pogba saw a straight red following a wild challenge after coming in as a second-half substitute.
United went to a five-man defence when Diogo Dalot come on for Rashford after 62 minutes in a bid to survive the last half hour without further damage, but the match was already gone.
With this result, United now 8 points behind Liverpool.
ManU fans have opined that it is only a matter of when rather than if Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will be sacked by the club
