Liverpool destroy Man United 7-0 at Anfield, they ripped them apart

Liverpool destroyed Manchester United at Anfield, scoring SIX second half goals in the rout.

Liverpool annihilated Manchester United 7-0 in a breathtaking day at Anfield.

Though United have struggled in away games against their rivals, many expected a close affair after their recent resurgence and the capture of a first trophy in six years.

But Jurgen Klopp's side completed their revival with a stunning performance that was more akin to what you would expect the old Liverpool to deliver.

Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah all bagged braces before substitute Roberto Firmino, announced to be leaving at the end of the season, added even further humiliation as Liverpool ran riot and inflicted the heaviest defeat in this historic fixture.

Liverpool are now just three points off the Champions League places after the huge result, which followed up Spurs' 1-0 loss to Wolves on Saturday.

As for United, they completely capitulated in the second half, conceding SIX times after being well in the game in the opening 45 minutes.

Despite their improved from, the game served as a reminder of how far United still have to go to be an elite level team.

They were hammered 5-0 and 4-0 by Liverpool last season but an embarrassing 7-0 obliteration and the manner in which they lost their heads, stings even more.

Many of the travelling fans left the away section prior to the final whistle and United now need an almighty response in the coming weeks after suffering their worst ever loss since Boxing Day 1931.

The Carabao Cup winners face Real Betis in the Europa League round of 16 first leg at Old Trafford on Thursday, before hosting lowly Southampton on Sunday.
