Liverpool Battered Manchester United Again, Aggregate Scoreline Of 9-0 This Season
| Last updated
Liverpool blitzed Manchester United for a second time this season, smashing their rivals 4-0 at Anfield this evening.
Mo Salah struck twice, with fellow forwards Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane also on target in a resounding win that moves the Reds back to the top of the table - at least until Manchester City host Brighton on Wednesday evening.
United, who had Paul Pogba go off injured early on and were without Cristiano Ronaldo due to the tragic passing of his baby boy, have now conceded nine against the Merseyside outfit in the Premier League this season.

Liverpool destroyed United 5-0 at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture in a game where Salah scored a hat-trick.
In fact, in their last three games against Liverpool, United have conceded a whopping 13 goals and scored just two.
Against the Premier League's top two sides this term, United have shipped 15 goals - the same as Norwich and just one behind Leeds United.
United's last win at Anfield came six years ago when Wayne Rooney scored the winner. They may have knocked Liverpool off their perch under Sir Alex Ferguson but there's no denying the club are an absolute mess at the moment.
The defeat tonight, where Ralf Rangnick's side had 28% possession and a mere one shot on target, saw United miss out on the chance move level on points with fourth-placed Spurs, who have a game in hand.
As a result of the amount of goals let in, they actually dropped into sixth place below Arsenal on goal difference.
