Liverpool defeated Manchester United 3-1 to go to the top of the Premier League table once again. However, this pushed United even further away from a Champions League position.
Mané gave Liverpool the lead in the 24th minute. Lingard managed to equalise for United in the 33rd, but this did not last long.
Klopp’s team overwhelmed Mourinho’s with their intensity and momentum. In the second half, Shaqiri netted two goals to secure a win for the Reds!
United are still eight points below Arsenal, who woefully lost 3-2 against Southampton. Every time Southampton scored, Mkhitaryan scored an equaliser, but he could not do the same for the last goal.
United are also now 11 points below fourth-place Chelsea, who defeated Brighton 2-1 with goals from Hazard and Pedro.
Only a game separates United from 11th place Bournemouth. Right now, they have a greater chance of finishing in the bottom half of the table than finishing in the top four.
