Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjær are experiencing one of their worst spells in the English Premier League after breaking long holding club records.
Manchester United vs Liverpool FC was on of the most anticipated matched in the EPL following the rivalry between the two teams.
The Old Trafford stadium was a fortress for Manchester United and they were expected to be able to hold Liverpool to at least a draw following the current form of the visitors. Mohammed Salah who has been on a rampage against any team he comes across in this EPL season and scoring unimaginable goals was always to be looked at.
The game started with Manchester United looking comfortable in the first two minutes on the ball and playing within their lines until LIverpool FC shifted the gear straight from first to third. It took Liverpool 5 minutes to find the back of the net after Naby Keita connected to an assist from Mohammed Salah.
Eight minutes after their opener, Trent Alexander-Arnold sent one into the Manchester United box and was met by Diogo Jota to make it two for the visitor. Ole Gunnar was start struck as he did not know what was going wrong on the pitch.
Mohammed Salah who is in the goal-scoring form of his life added the third for Liverpool as Naby Keita paid the Egyptian back in his own coin with a sweet pass. The speed with which Liverpool FC were attacking the backline of Manchester United was amazing and Harry Maguire was nowhere near good to defend for his club.
Manchester United were already loosing their cool after conceding three unanswered goals in 38′. Mohammed Salah who was not ready to lift his feet off the paddle added the forth for Liverpool FC and his second for the night. It was a record breaker for Liverpool FC after been breaking the long standing record as the second team to score four(4) unanswered goals against Manchester United in a half.
The frustration on the faces of the players, technical team and Manchester United former manager, Sir Alex Ferguson told it all. The second half was no different from the first as Mohammed Salah added his third and fifth for Liverpool FC.
Cristiano Ronaldo was frustrated to the point that he showcased unsportsmanlike conduct after shoving Curtis Jones unto the ground and pounding the ball at the Liverpool player. Calls were made for VAR to check for possible red card offense but it concluded with the yellow card been a fair caution to the all time men leading goal scorer.
Paul Pogba also got booked after launching a dangerous tackle against Naby Keita with a previous yellow card overturned for a red card as his tackle was a career threatening tackle.
