    Player Ratings as Liverpool and Salah totally destroy what remains in Old Trafford

    Player Ratings as Liverpool and Salah totally destroy what remains in Old Trafford
    Player Ratings as Liverpool and Salah totally destroy what remains in Old Trafford

    Liverpool ran riot at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday to put Manchester United to the sword in a 5-0 demolition.


    The Reds scented blood from minute one and went for the jugular, piling the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and becoming the away side with the biggest winning margin in this historic fixture. Mohamed Salah stole the headlines to consolidate his position as football’s best player at the minute with a devastating hat-trick, but goals from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also put the gloss on an emphatic showing.


    Here’s how the players rated at Old Trafford:


    Alisson Becker – 7 – A clean sheet, slick distribution as ever and always an authoritative presence between the sticks. Man Utd certainly didn’t pepper his goal, but when questions were asked, he answered.


    Trent Alexander-Arnold – 9 – Charged forward like Dani Alves in his prime, collected his obligatory assist and kept a clean sheet. You really cannot fault the England international for a display that was emblematic of his meteoric rise to prominence at Anfield.


    Ibrahima Konate – 8 – Drafted in for the big occasion, eyes would certainly have been on Konate and how the inexperienced Premier League defender would fare in arguably the competition’s ‘biggest’ fixture. He handled himself extremely well and acquitted himself with merit, forming an near-impervious centre-back partnership with Van Dijk.


    Virgil van Dijk – 8 – A classic Van Dijk display. This game was more about Liverpool’s attack, but defensively they were equally as impressive as Man Utd created their fair share of moments, but Klopp’s backline were equal to the test. For his part, the Dutchman led with authority, kept a lid on Ronaldo and was an immovable bulwark.


    Andy Robertson – 8 – Lively, energetic, unsatisfied with the scoreline even at 5-0 as he could be heard during Salah’s hat-trick celebrations urging his side on for more. The buccaneering full-back was an ever-willing runner, coped well with Greenwood in the first half, and deserved his clean sheet.


    Naby Keita – 9 – In a week where former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann said Keita is ‘not good enough’ to play for the club, the elegant midfield dynamo produced a vintage Liverpool display, encapsulating the high press, high energy that defines Klopp’s side. The Guinea international was simply immense, taking his goal with confidence before teeing up Salah with a pinpoint delivery. Imperious, but deservedly so, as he made Old Trafford his playground this afternoon.


    Jordan Henderson – 9 – The press-resistant midfielder buzzed about like an amorous bee. He was like a man possessed, with ‘second wind’ the first phrase in his catechism as he never tired. A world class assist for Salah’s hat-trick was prime Ozil-esque, a piece of instinctive creative genius.


    James Milner – 6 – Industrious as ever in his ephemeral display. The veteran midfielder lasted just 27 minutes but the visitors were already two up by that stage and Milner’s insatiable pressing contributed to that early mauling.


    Mohamed Salah – 10 – Is Mohamed Salah the best player in the world at this present moment in time? Yes. The Egyptian king turned every moment into magic, rising to the occasion (as he so often does) and bullying a beleaguered Man Utd defence. It was like a sixth-former turning up at a primary school match, Salah was an absolute juggernaut when cantering forward, precise and almost robotic with his finishing. A trademark Salah showing and a hat-trick for the ages! Perfection.


    Diogo Jota – 9 – Justified his manager’s decision to select him ahead of Sadio Mane, Jota formed a near-telepathic understanding with Salah, took his goal well, and even claimed an assist as he set up the Egyptian just before the interval. Lively, clinical and devastating.


    Roberto Firmino – 9 – Didn’t score, didn’t assist, but did what Firmino often does best: brought the entire attack together with his selfless endeavour. If Salah was the trusty source of goals, Jota the attacking adrenaline shot, then Firmino was the fulcrum, bringing the equation together with his link-up play, movement and awareness. Maguire and Lindelof didn’t know whether to follow or stay put.




    Curtis Jones (for Milner 27′) – 8 – A young midfielder tossed into a tinderbox occasion, and he produced a performance that certainly belies his tender years. Jones replicated the industry of Milner, but added a dash of elegance with his slick passing range and panache.


    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (for Keita 64′) – 6 – Came on for the injured Keita and did well enough to see the game out.


    Sadio Mane (for Firmino 77′) – 6 – Again, came on late into the game and did well to see out a devastating Liverpool win.
