Another Incredible movement and crisp passing around the edge of the box saw Matip find Mane, who played a ball around the corner for Salah’s run and he slot in with ease.

Manchester United’s dismal first half at Anfield was compounded by an injury to Paul Pogba, who only lasted 10 minutes.

Liverpool fans sang ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ during a minute’s applause for Cristiano Ronaldo following the tragic passing of his baby son.

The third goal came in the second half after Diaz cut back to lay off Mane who converted the opportunity without a hassle.

Salah compounded United’s woes by chipping De Gea to get the fourth goal of the night!

Liverpool have now completed their first Premier League double over their heated rivals since 2013/14.
