Liverpool player ratings vs Man Utd: Cody Gakpo delivers Anfield masterclass as Reds destroy old rivals
Liverpool’s Champions League hopes are very much alive and kicking after they sensationally tore high-flying Manchester United apart on a historic afternoon at Anfield.
Two superb goals from Cody Gakpo, two from Darwin Nunez and two from Mohamed Salah, plus an emotional strike from substitute Roberto Firmino, gave the Reds an incredible 7-0 win over their fierce rivals, and moves them up to fifth in the Premier League in the process.
On a quite remarkable day, the thrashing represents the biggest winning margin ever in the fixture, beating the record set all the way back in October 1895, when the sides were competing in the Second Division.
Having scored four and five against United in the league last season, Liverpool somehow went not one, but two better this time.
