Liverpool's Outrageous Team Goal Vs Manchester United Was Poetry In Motion, James Milner Couldn't Believe It
The Reds went 1-0 up inside five minutes when United's shaky backline was ripped apart by a pass through the lines from Sadio Mane.
He sent Salah clear and the Egyptian set up Luis Diaz for a tap in past David De Gea.
But if you thought that move was good, Jurgen Klopp's side upped their game and put together a truly incredible passage of play to double their lead.
Building from the back, Liverpool were patient and moved the ball around quickly with incisive one, two touch passing.
Centre-back Joel Matip was heavily involved in the build-up and it was his penetrative pass to Mane that opened up all the space.
Senegal's Africa Cup Of Nations hero picked out the run of Salah with a delightfully chipped first-time pass and the Liverpool No.11 was never going to miss.
The move was so breathtaking that it prompted quite the gawk from James Milner. The midfielder was on the bench watching the purring football and couldn't help but have his hands to his face in awe.
You couldn't blame him for his reaction, too. There were 10 players involved, including Alisson Becker, and a total of 25 passes before Salah's finish.

It really was poetry in motion stuff. Absolutely electric football from Liverpool, who look like they are ready to embarrass United for the second time this term.
In the reverse fixture, Liverpool were leading 4-0 at half-time during the clash at Old Trafford and it was a surprise they only added another one goal in the second half following a dominant display.
In this outing, United had just 24% possession and did not have a single shot on target in the opening 45 minutes.
Mane added a third for the Reds in the second half, making it eight goals scored against their rivals this season.
