The Reds ran out 4-0 winners at Anfield, with Mo Salah bagging a double and Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane also on the scoresheet.
Liverpool bossed the game from start to finish and moved to the top of the table with the win. United, who lined up with a back five in the first half, could not get near their rivals.
And towards the end of the game, frustrations got the better of United midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
He was dribbled past by Trent Alexander-Arnold and lost his head for a moment, dangerously catching the England right-back on the knee with an awful challenge.
Substitute James Milner was right over to Fernandes and putting his hands on him, while captain Henderson was also fuming with the tackle.
Confronting the Portugal international, Henderson seemed to use the words “f***ing rat” and a “f***ing baby” to tell Fernandes what he thought of him.
You don't need to be an expert in lip-reading to know what Henderson was saying. Fernandes was shown a yellow card by Martin Atkinson and VAR didn't upgrade it to a red card despite checking the incident.
Fernandes wasn't the only United player to receive a caution for a rush of blood to the head.
Youngster Hannibal Mejbri had an extremely chaotic cameo after replacing Anthony Elanga in the 84th minute.

Clearly the 19-year-old took on the Roy Keane "I might smash into someone... just to make me feel better" mantra, clattering into both Henderson and Naby Keita in quick succession.
The Tunisian was booked for the first foul and look to avoid a second yellow. It was only his second appearance for the club and former United captain Gary Neville commended him.
"To be fair, at least the kid’s showing a bit of something," Neville said on co-commentary for the game.
"Honestly, it takes a young kid to come on and show the rest of them how to sprint to the ball and put a challenge in.
"I’m actually proud of him. Maybe he doesn’t like the idea of Liverpool players passing round him. I wish the rest of them were the same."
