Roberto Firmino’s goal was ruled out by the VAR review in the 25th minute owing to Virgil van Dijk’s foul. The only front on which United was ahead was perhaps luck. Georginio Wijnaldum’s goal was also discarded as he was caught marginally offside when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain tried to split the defense with his smart through-ball.
Andreas Pereira missed the opportunity to open the scoring for the visitors as his right-footed shot missed the goal from a close range.
Liverpool looked dominant enough even after the commencement of the second half. Salah missed out on an opportunity to seal the win for his team on the 47th minute after Jordan Henderson’s attempt was also blocked.

United’s all or nothing approach in the final moments of the game cost them as Liverpool managed to counterattack.

With this emphatic win, Liverpool moves even closer to the title cup. Manchester United, which is currently placed fifth in the Premier League with 34 points, has a lot of work to do to get back in the race.
