EPL: Liverpool humiliate Man Utd in 7-0 thrashing

By Olugbenga Ige

Liverpool on Sunday thrashed Manchester United’s 7-0 at Anfield in perhaps the most epic Premier League drubbing of the weekend.

Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah each scored two goals in an extraordinary performance by Jurgen Klopp’s side before Roberto Firmino added the seventh as United capitulated amid scenes of wild jubilation among the home support.

Erik ten Hag’s side had come into the game on an 11-game unbeaten run and fresh from ending their six-year trophy drought but were completely overwhelmed, conceding six second-half goals amid a raucous atmosphere on a never-to-be-forgotten night for Liverpool fans.

United did have chances in the first half with Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford spurning good openings but two goals in quick succession early in the second half led to a thrashing as United caved in. It is Liverpool resurgent, hopes of a top-four finish revitalised.

They move above Newcastle into fifth, now just three points behind Tottenham with a game in hand. United’s seven-year wait for a win at Anfield goes on, their slim hopes of muscling their way into the Premier League title race undermined by this astonishing defeat.
