Liverpool Thrash United In Historical Seven-Goal Win

Liverpool achieved their most impressive win of the season as they demolished Manchester United at Anfield.

Erik Ten Hag’s men lifted the Carabao Cup last week and have also registered victories over Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool themselves this season, however few people could have anticipated their utter capitulation.

The first 45 minutes were relatively even in terms of possession and chances created, but it was Coady Gakpo, who snubbed Man Utd in January, who drew first blood with a goal just before half-time.

Darwin Nunez added another just two minutes after the restart, with the Uruguayan really finding his feet after a frustrating season in front of goal. Gakpo scored again three minutes later, before two goals from Mohamed Salah, one more from Nunez, and a final strike by the departing Roberto Firmino wrapped up an iconic Liverpool win.


 


Front Three On Fire

Nobody who watched Liverpool’s wretched 3-0 loss to Wolves in January would have predicted that the Reds should now be one of the most in-form teams in the entire league. After a season of false dawn after false dawn, to say Liverpool are ‘back’ would be a jinx as far as their fans are concerned. 

Nevertheless, the Reds’ complete and utter humiliation of Manchester United could mark the turning point in their season. Liverpool have now kept five clean sheets in a row and are just mere points away from breaking into the top four for the first time this season. 

The front three of Nunez, Gakpo, and Salah toiled with United’s backline and reduced them to rubble after just 10 minutes of second-half action. Luke Shaw produced his worst performance this season, whilst Raphael Varane and Lizandro Martinez looked like a shell of themselves. 



Impressive Midfield

Liverpool’s midfield was also very reminiscent of the legendary 2019/20 Liverpool side. Fabinho bossed the defensive side of midfield, whilst Jordan Henderson offered his usual tireless work-rate and intelligent passing. Harvey Elliot had one of his best performances in a Liverpool shirt, running 10.1km in total - the most out of any player in the game. 

Elliot and Henderson also registered an assist each. 

Liverpool may have been helped by United’s defeatist attitude and Rangick-era disorganization, but all credit must go to Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are now in serious Champions League contention. The Reds never left the top four in 21/22 and this season, they are yet to join it. 

The 7-0 downing of their archrivals will give Liverpool plenty of motivation to tackle Real Madrid’s 3-goal advantage in the Champions League. It remains unlikely that the Reds will overcome their deficit in Madrid, but this victory will give their fans all the hope they need.
