Soccer Football - Premier League - Manchester United v Liverpool - Old Trafford, Manchester, Britain - October 24, 2021 Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp before the match REUTERS/Phil NobleMANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Liverpool ripped apart Manchester United as they powered to a 5-0 win at Old Trafford on Sunday, a result which their manager Juergen Klopp described as"insane".
Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick for Liverpool, extending his scoring record to 10 straight games in all competitions, but Klopp was full of praise for the whole of his attack."What we did in the last third was insane. Pressing high, winning balls, scored wonderful goals," he said.
"The result is insane, I asked if there was one like this in history and if there isn't then it will take a while, added the German, whose team remain a point behind leaders Chelsea."5-0, I couldn't be happier, it is exceptional. Absolutely outstanding," he said. headtopics.com
It was Liverpool's biggest ever win at United and Klopp said it would be remembered as one of the club's great results."This group always wanted to write their own little chapters in the big, big history book of this club. This one was a little one tonight, a little chapter. People will talk about it in the future, 100%, because it will not happen very often, if it happens again at all," said Klopp.
As so often, Liverpool's front three was on fire but the entire team looked in the kind of form that saw them win the title in 2020."We were clinical, we were ruthless, our high press was outstanding, we really won balls in great areas, the formation was top and all these kind of things you want to see as a coach, worked out really great," said Klopp.
"The difference is now that you usually don’t score with each situation you have pretty much, but that’s what we did and why we were 4-0 up at half-time. Second half, early 5-0 and the red card, game over, so then just control it and try to get home healthy," he said.
The only negative for Klopp was that James Milner and Naby Keita picked up injuries in the second half.(Reporting by Simon Evans, editing by Pritha Sarkar) Read more: The Star »
