Manchester United vs. Liverpool result: Mohamed Salah nets hat trick in 5-0 Liverpool thrashing

This Liverpool can’t be stopped. Mohamed Salah scored a hat trick as the Reds thrashed their rival 5-0 at Old Trafford, handing Manchester United one of its worst defeats in recent memory.

Liverpool scored all five goals by the 50th minute, but the result was marred by a red-card tackle from Manchester United’s Paul Pogba on Naby Keita, which resulted in the Liverpool player being stretchered off the field. Pogba was brought on at halftime and lasted just 15 minutes.

The visitors had two goals after just 13 minutes. The first goal was scored after just five minutes as Salah fed Naby Keita for a simple finish. Then eight minutes later Keita fed Trent Alexander-Arnold who served up a perfect cross for Diogo Jota.

Salah went on to score the next three for Liverpool, putting home a cross by Keita in minute 33. Just before halftime, he got a second as Jota fed him in open space on the right. He netted his third right after the break, chipping goalkeeper David De Gea on a fantastic through ball from Jordan Henderson.

Final: Manchester United 0, Liverpool 5

90th min.: Liverpool knocking the ball around at will. Every now and then Man United push up for an attack. Three minutes of stoppage time.

83rd min.: Edinson Cavani off the crossbar! McTominay heads down a set piece to the opposite post and Cavani deflects the ball off the crossbar and out.

77th min.: SUB – Sadio Mane comes on for Roberto Firmino. Jurgen Klopp not looking for Liverpool to back down here.

71st min.: What a shot by Trent Alexander-Arnold and what a stop by David De Gea. That was destined for the far left corner.

63rd min.: Naby Keita is leaving the field on a stretcher after that Pogba tackle and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces him.

62nd min.: SUBS – Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford come off. Edinson Cavani and Diogo Dalot come in after the Pogba red card. Fans are not sticking around to see what they do:

60th min.: It’s a red card for Pogba! After the referee reviews the play, Pogba is gone after just 15 minutes. Now ManU is down to 10 men and down 5-0.

59th min.: Paul Pogba gets a yellow for a reckless lunge on Naby Keita and the referee’s going to look at it at the monitor.

52nd min.: Cristiano Ronaldo scores on a solo effort, but it’s disallowed for a slight offside.

50th min.: It’s a hat trick for Mo Salah! What a ball by Jordan Henderson to Salah and he pokes it past David De Gea.

46th min.: We’re back underway and Paul Pogba is into the game for Mason Greenwood. Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes gets a yellow card for a challenge. Not exactly the start Man United was expecting.

Halftime: Manchester United 0, Liverpool 4

50th min.: Liverpool put away a fourth goal before the break! Four players touch the ball and Mo Salah finishes the move for his second goal. Tough to see Man United coming back from this.

46th min.: Tempers are flaring for Man United. Cristiano Ronaldo should’ve been sent off, but instead gets off with a yellow after kicking the ball into the midsection of Curtis Jones, who was on the ground. Totally unnecessary.

33rd min.: It’s a third for Liverpool! They’re flying around the Man United box. This time it’s Naby Keita with the cross and Mo Salah finishes for a goal in his 10th straight game.

29th min.: Mason Greenwood with the solo effort. His shot is stopped by Alisson for a corner, but nothing comes of it.

26th min.: SUB – Curtis Jones has to come into the match for James Milner in midfield.

23rd min.: Another blast from a United player. This time it’s Luke Shaw and it goes wide right.

19th min.: Man United is pushing hard and it’s Cristiano Ronaldo who skies his shot. Liverpool is sharp, Man United depending on solo efforts so far.

13th min.: Another Liverpool goal! Diogo Jota with the sliding finish on the cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold.

10th min.: Liverpool gives away the ball in its own end and Marcus Rashford nearly makes them pay. Ball is off target.

9th min.: Mo Salah dangerous again but he can’t get his shot on target.

7th min.: What a start for Liverpool. Another chance for Roberto Firmino stuffed by the ‘keeper.

5th min.: Goal Liverpool! Fantastic move and great runs by the attacking players. Mo Salah makes the cross-field run, gets the pass and then feeds a wide-open Naby Keita who slots home easily. It’s another goal for the oft-criticized Keita.

11:21 a.m.: A taste of the atmosphere inside Old Trafford, from a Liverpool perspective:

11:11 a.m.: Jurgen Klopp looking to set records of his own:

10:11 a.m.: The most important stat of them all.

Manchester United vs. Liverpool: Starting lineups

So much for the alarms that Solskjaer put out there ahead of the match. It turns out that Bruno Fernandes, Fred and Marcus Rashford are well enough from their midweek Champions League knocks to start again. It’s the same lineup that faced Atalanta, and Paul Pogba is on the bench. Center back Raphael Varane is still out with the groin issue.

Manchester United starting lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): 1-David de Gea-GK — 29-Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 2-Victor Lindelof, 5-Harry Maguire (c), 23-Luke Shaw — 17-Fred, 39-Scott McTominay — 11-Mason Greenwood, 18-Bruno Fernandes, 10-Marcus Rashford — 7-Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United subs: 26-Dean Henderson-GK, 3-Eric Bailly, 20-Diogo Dalot, 34-Donny van de Beek, 31-Nemanja Matic, 6-Paul Pogba, 14-Jesse Lingard, 25-Jadon Sancho, 21-Edinson Cavani

Liverpool won’t have central midfielder Fabinho for the game, and Curtis Jones starts on the bench. So it’ll be James Milner and Naby Keita in their place. Diogo Jota is in the lineup as Sadio Mane gets rest; so goes Joel Matip as Ibrahima Konate takes his place. Harvey Elliott (ankle) and Thiago Alcantara (calf) are still out.

Liverpool starting lineup (4-3-3 left to right): 1-Alisson — 26-Andrew Robertson, 4-Virgil Van Dijk, 5-Ibrahima Konate, 66-Trent Alexander-Arnold — 8-Naby Keita, 14-Jordan Henderson, 7-James Milner — 9-Roberto Firmino, 20 Diogo Jota, 11 Mohamed Salah

Liverpool subs (9): 13-Adrian-GK, 21-Konstantinos Tsimikas, 32-Joel Matip, 12-Joe Gomez, 15-Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 17-Curtis Jones, 18-Takumi Minamino, 10-Sadio Mane, 27-Divock Origi

Manchester United vs. Liverpool: Betting tips & prediction

Odds courtesy of DraftKings

Pick: Liverpool over 5.5 shots on target -115

Picking a side is tricky in this spot. Liverpool is clearly the better side at the moment, but Man United is known to come up with great performances when the Red Devils have their backs to the wall. So playing a team prop is the alternative chosen here.

Entering Matchday 9, Liverpool has scored the most goals and generated the most shots on goal of any team in the Premier League. It’s no surprise why: In addition to Salah, its attacking players have been in strong form. They will face a Man United team that has allowed the 10th most shots on target in the league (34) with the third highest shots on target percentage allowed (34.7 %), per FBref .

MORE: Wild finish in Man United vs. Atalanta match

In the 12 matches played across all competitions, Liverpool has only failed to get six or more shots on goal on five occasions: Two of those came against Norwich City, and the other three happened in the most evenly contested matchups of the season: at Brentford (4), vs. Manchester City (3) and at Atletico Madrid (5).

Given how porous Man United has shown itself to be — only one shutout in 12 matches — and especially without its top defensive signing Raphael Varane, the over 5.5 shots on target for Liverpool at -115 makes for an interesting play.

Prediction: Manchester United 1, Liverpool 2

  • Moneyline: Manchester United +200 / Draw +265 / Liverpool +130
  • Spread: Manchester United +0.5 (-145) / Liverpool -0.5 (+130)
  • O/U 2.5 total goals : Over -200 / Under +160
  • Both Teams To Score: Yes -245 / No +185
