Rampant Liverpool thrash Manchester United 7-0 in Premier League rivalry
Erik ten Hag’s team had been on a great run since the season resumed after the World Cup. It seemed like it would challenge Manchester City and Arsenal at the top of the table. Klopp had termed United a “results machine” before this match. He never imagined a performance and result like this.
It will be regarded for decades as one of Liverpool’s finest wins in this game and one of the greatest Premier League results. Liverpool was the great whole game, but Manchester United was terrible. Ten Hag has experienced several disappointments since joining in April 2022.
“No words,” a beaming Klopp told after the win. “Spectacular football game. Outstanding. The start of the game was exactly what we needed – super front foot, super lively, super active. We played top football against the team in form.
“Second half, the start was pretty good, the finish was pretty good, everything was pretty good. That’s football, it can happen.
“As I said before the game, United has played a super season and we are not really happy with our season so far, but that doesn’t mean anything for the game because you still have to play this one and today we were clearly the better side for this moment and we got a very important three points. It feels good.”
“We’ve had setbacks in the past and we have to come back again because this is what Manchester United is about,” a sombre Bruno Fernandes told Sky Sports after the game. “We can go down but we have to get back up because we know how good we are.
“We know that today we didn’t show and we didn’t perform at our level, but we know this team is really good and can do really good things. Today, that was not the case but I’m pretty sure this team will still do great things together with the fans I have to appreciate for their support.
“We have set a really good standard for ourselves, now it’s just about getting back to that because the fans deserve that and we deserve that. We have done much better than today in the past and we will do much better in the future.”
