In a stunning display of dominance, Liverpool thrashed third-placed Manchester United with a 7-0 win at home. This is the first time in history that Liverpool has won this fixture by such a large margin, and it marks the first time since 1960 that United has conceded seven goals in a league match.

The first goal of the game came in the 43rd minute, with Dutch player Cody Gakpo finding the back of the net. In the second half, United made several mistakes, which Liverpool capitalized on. Darwin Núñez scored off a Luke Shaw mistake, and Gakpo scored his second of the game shortly thereafter. With a three-goal lead, Liverpool confidently pushed forward and scored on almost every shot on target, except for one.

In the 66th minute, Mohamed Salah tied Robbie Fowler’s club record for the most home goals scored. Twenty minutes later, he broke the record, becoming Liverpool’s all-time top scorer in the Premier League with 129 goals in 205 appearances. Núñez also scored two goals, and Roberto Firmino scored the seventh and final goal of the game in the 88th minute.

With this win, Liverpool moved up to fifth place in the Premier League, ahead of Newcastle, and secured a spot in the Europa League group stage. Manchester United, on the other hand, fell further behind Arsenal and Manchester City. After the seventh goal, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was seen shouting at a fan who had run onto the pitch, presumably in celebration.
