Aren't Liverpool meant to be in crisis? We thought Manchester United were meant to be back? If anyone decided that Sunday's match at Anfield would be the first they watched this season, they would have refused to have believed either of those narratives.
Jurgen Klopp's side have shown signs of reviving their campaign in recent weeks, but they took things to a different level here as Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah all scored twice before Roberto Firmino rounded out the scoring to seal a record-breaking 7-0 win.
For United, though, this was a damaging reality check just a week on from their triumphant Carabao Cup final victory.
It was the Red Devils' heaviest Premier League defeat, and it could have been even worse as Erik ten Hag's side capitulated in the second half after going in just 1-0 down at the break.
Any slim hopes they had of clawing their way back into the title race are now likely gone, and they must dust themselves off quickly to ensure their season is not derailed.
