Liverpool defeat ManUtd 7-0 at Anfield on Sunday. Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah all scored twice.
In the match between English football’s two most successful clubs, Jurgen Klopp’s team won by the most points ever.
“That was one of the best shows I’ve seen in a very long time. “Everyone saw how good the boys can be,” Klopp said.
“The start of the second half could not be better. From then on, we were on a roll, and it was hard for other teams to beat us.”
United’s chances of winning the league title for the first time in 10 years are likely over if they lose their second of 23 games in all competitions. They are 14 points behind leaders Arsenal in third place.
But the club’s record-tying loss in a competitive game, which was also the worst since 1931, could do even more long-term damage.
“The result is pretty clear. “It’s not a good sign,” United manager Erik ten Hag said.
“There are a lot of things that get me mad. To give up so many goals so easily has to be one.”
Spurs are in fourth place, but Liverpool is only three points behind them and has a game in hand.
Last season, Klopp’s team beat the other team’s two league games by a combined score of 9-0, but it seems like things have changed this year.
In August, United beat Liverpool 2-1, which was Erik ten Hag’s first win as manager. At the start of the day, United was 10 points ahead of Liverpool.
Liverpool hasn’t looked like the same team that nearly won a record-setting four trophies last year.
But between a 5-2 loss at home to Real Madrid, they won 13 of a possible 15 points in the Premier League to get back in the race for a spot in the Champions League next season.
“Everyone needs to know us. “Everyone needs to know we are still here,” Klopp added. “We have to be like that from now on”
