Liverpool swept to a stunning 5-0 win at arch-rivals Manchester United as Mohamed Salah's hat-trick and Paul Pogba's red card condemned the hosts to one of the darkest days in their history, while West Ham beat London rivals Tottenham on Sunday. Ten years after Manchester City's infamous 6-1 victory at Old Trafford, Liverpool inflicted one of the most embarrassing losses United have ever suffered. It was Liverpool's biggest win against United since 1925 and moved them seven points clear of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the Premier League table.
Second-placed Liverpool are just one point behind leaders Chelsea as they chase the title -- an ambition which looks completely beyond hapless United after this wretched afternoon.
In a telling indictment of United's capitulation, thousands of fans left Old Trafford well before full-time.
