Liverpool have achieved an extraordinary triumph over their biggest rivals Manchester United, humiliating them 7-0 at Anfield in a Premier League drubbing.
Liverpool humiliate Man Utd in amazing 7-0 triumph
Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah have all hit doubles to kill off Manchester United’s faint Premier League title hopes as a giddy Liverpool rolled over their old foes 7-0 in amazing fashion at Anfield.
The 23-year-old Gakpo, a January recruit from PSV, marked his first appearance in this famous rivalry with a pair of sublime goals, with Nunez and Salah adding to the humbling on Sunday.
Salah became Liverpool’s record Premier League scorer and substitute Roberto Firmino also got in on the act, on what was a day of vindication for manager Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool’s German boss sees Gakpo and Nunez as vital to the team’s future, and against a ragged United defence they helped make it a day to savour for the hosts, whose win takes them above Newcastle United and into fifth place.
