Three Four things we learned from Manchester United vs Liverpool

1. Ole Gunnar Solsk-fired?  Man United ’ s party boss has been deemed safe by about every reputation prior to this game but it ’ s unmanageable to believe that 95 % of managers in the world wouldn ’ metric ton be in serious trouble after going down 4-0 at home to their rivals after 45 minutes in such a big game. now throw in Solskjaer using the lapp Starting XI as a wednesday 3-2 rejoinder succeed over Atalanta in the UEFA Champions League, specially when the lineup excludes Paul Pogba, and, well, belly laugh. Pogba has started for a World Cup winner and a scudetto winner, so not starting straight matches while Fred, Scott McTominay, and Mason Greenwood keep their space ? Insane. then again, Pogba lasted all over 16 minutes when he entered the game with the Reds down 4-0, a directly red ending his sidereal day. 2. Incredible Liverpool: Take nothing, or very little, away from Liverpool. The Reds did allow a huge early gamble to Bruno Fernandes but they were differently solid as a rock. Mohamed Salah ’ s near-perfect mannequin allowed him to complete a hat trick when he made a rare and child erroneousness on a heavy touch toward David De Gea. The Reds didn ’ t evening look like they were showing off, just executing a system against a team that doesn ’ t have one. liverpool coasted up a man at 5-0, showing good how little they feared the Red Devils. furthermore, they didn ’ thymine even mind their rivals with anything early than compassion. 3. How is that not a red? Cristiano Ronaldo somehow dodged a loss circuit board from referee Anthony Taylor and escaped VAR follow-up from a kick to the middle of Curtis Jones and two follow-up digs at “ the ball, ” which was stuck up against the prone Jones. possibly Taylor and VAR are giving Ronaldo a break because he ’ mho Ronaldo, he hits the ball, and the plot was already 2-0, but it ’ south difficult to believe any early actor wouldn ’ triiodothyronine be in the showers immediately after the discourtesy. 4. Maguire in the worst patch of his Man Utd career: Harry Maguire simply can not be 100 % right now. He must ’ ve been pushed back into military action after Raphael Varane was injured. There is no other coherent explanation for how bad Maguire ’ south looked over the concluding workweek — although he did score a big goal final week — and all you have to do is watch Luke Shaw to see how often the left back feels compelled to stay closer to Maguire than most center backs. Man of the Match: Mohamed Salah reasonably aboveboard, yea ?

Manchester United vs Liverpool recap

United had a here and now right off the recoil, as Bruno Fernandes ’ first base touch of a Marcus Rashford-inspired probability took him wide-eyed and the Portuguese lashed over the finish. It was 1-0 to the early guys moments by and by, as a lightning counter saw Mohamed Salah set up Naby Keita for a fine finish. 2-0 came soon. [ VIDEO: Premier League highlights ] This time Keita was central as Harry Maguire clattered into teammate Luke Shaw, and Liverpool was queueing up at the rear post for Trent Alexander-Arnold ’ sulfur crossbreed. Diogo Jota got the goal. Salah then was first-to-react to make it 3-0 and was left wide exposed at the back post for 4-0. Wedged in between was Cristiano Ronaldo ’ randomness cranky clog of Curtis Jones which was somehow alone a chicken card ( See Thing No. 3, above ). Salah completed his hat magic trick before Ronaldo made it 5-1 when he worked past Alexander-Arnold and Ibrahima Konate to curl a beautiful shooting inside the far post… but delay ! Ronaldo was offfside.

That ’ second when the wheels, which had already come off, actually exploded when Pogba was shown a red card following VAR review of his hard sliding undertake of Keita. Follow @ NicholasMendola
