Liverpool go top after Mohamed Salah torments Manchester United again
The Guardian says with the second-half restart delayed, bizarrely, while the referee, Martin Atkinson, had his microphone refitted, Manchester United’s players tried to stay on their toes by passing a ball about. The Kop responded with olés. It was a typically caustic judgment but one that felt entirely appropriate.
To borrow another line from the Liverpool support, their arch rivals hardly touched the ball during what was another chastening defeat. After the 5-0 Old Trafford shellacking back in October, this was another occasion that showed Liverpool to be on an altogether different plane.
United were a shambles, especially in the first half, their defeat inevitable from the moment that Luis Díaz gave Liverpool an early lead and they were on their knees when Mohamed Salah ran on to a pass from the substitute Diogo Jota to chip home the fourth in the final minutes.
