Commentary

That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
Liverpool move back up to second in the table with this win, just one point behind Chelsea. Meanwhile United remain seventh, seven points behind Liverpool. Next up for United is a trip to Tottenham, while Liverpool face Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield.
Liverpool wrap up a superb 5-0 victory over Manchester United after a masterclass from Salah, who scored a hat-trick. Liverpool led 4-0 at the break, after early goals from Keita and Jota, before a Salah brace made it comfortable for the visitors just before the half-time whistle. The visitors got the second period off to an excellent start, with Henderson feeding Salah in behind and he wrapped up his hat-trick, to grab the fifth of the game on 50 minutes. It then went from bad to worse for United as Pogba was shown a straight red card on the hour mark for a terrible challenge on Keita. United did have a few chances to pull a goal back, with Ronaldo seeing an effort ruled out by VAR for offside and Cavani hit the crossbar, but Liverpool saw the game out.
90' + 3' FULL-TIME: MAN UNITED 0-5 LIVERPOOL
90' + 2' It will be interesting to see how United respond to this defeat, there will be huge questions asked of the players and the manager in the next couple of days.
90' There will be a minimum of three minutes added time played at the end of the second half.
88' Liverpool will be keen to keep a clean sheet now, they are just keeping possession in the middle of the pitch and slowing the pace of the game down.
A. Wan-Bissaka
Yellow Card
86' Wan-Bissaka is the latest United player to be booked after a late challenge on Jota.
85' Decent effort! Oxlade-Chamberlain tries his luck from long range, but his effort flies well wide of the United goal, not troubling De Gea.
83' OFF THE BAR! United almost pull one back! McTominay gets on the end of a deep cross into the box and powers a header back across the six-yard box, which Cavani meets and he flicks it towards goal. However, Robertson gets across and superbly blocks the ball, sending it crashing against the crossbar!
81' Mane tries to get in on the goals, twisting and turning on the edge of the United box, before seeing his shot blocked. Jones is furious with his team-mate, as he was in a good position out to his left.
79' The only slight disappointment for Liverpool today is that they've lost Milner and Keita to injuries, as they already have a couple of midfielders out of action.
S. Mané
Roberto Firmino
76' Liverpool make their final change now, with Firmino the man coming off and he has been replaced by Mane.
76' This victory for Liverpool will send them back up to second in the table, just one point behind Chelsea and they'll remain unbeaten so far this season.
74' Almost! Jota sends Salah in behind the United defence, but he puts too much on his pass and Salah can't do an awful lot with it. He tries to square it back to his team-mate, but United clear the danger.
73' United have everyone back in their own half now, soaking up the Liverpool pressure which continues to build. They are trying to break forward on the counter when they can.
71' SAVE! Alexander-Arnold almost makes it six! The wing-back finds acres of space on the edge of the box and unleashes a powerful strike towards the top left corner of the net. However, De Gea is alert and makes a superb diving save, to tip it over the crossbar.
70' Unfortunately for United, there are still 20 minutes left on the clock and Liverpool could score a few more! They are struggling to get out of their own half now after going down to 10-men.
68' United have only picked up eight points from their last seven home Premier League matches (W2 D2 L3), winning twice as many points in their previous seven at Old Trafford (16 – W5 D1 L1).
66' The Liverpool supporters are loving this performance from their side, there is a huge amount of noise coming from the away end. Meanwhile a lot of United fans have had enough and have made their way to the exits.
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
N. Keïta
63' Keita has been forced off an a stretcher and hopefully it's not too bad for the midfielder. Oxlade-Chamberlain is his replacement.
Diogo Dalot
M. Rashford
62' The other change sees Rashford head off and he has been replaced by Dalot.
E. Cavani
Bruno Fernandes
62' Double substitution now for United, with Fernandes replaced by Cavani.
61' Keita is receiving medical treatment on the pitch following the Pogba challenge and it doesn't look good for the Liverpool midfielder. The stretcher is on and he will be coming off.
P. Pogba
Red Card
60' RED CARD! The decision has been overturned and Pogba is off! It was a really bad challenge by the midfielder on Keita and after looking at the video replay, the referee changes his mind and shows Pogba a red card. It goes from bad to worse for United.
59' POSSIBLE RED CARD! VAR are taking a look at a really poor challenge by Pogba on Keita, after the midfielder dives into a tackle, with both feet raised and high. He doesn't get the ball and catches Keita late. The referee is going to take a look at the replay, after he originally only showed him a yellow card.
57' Liverpool continue to push forward in search of another goal and they look dangerous every time they get into the final third. Pogba hasn't done anything in midfield for United to try and swing the game back in their favour.
H. Maguire
Yellow Card
55' Maguire is very lucky to just get a yellow card and give away a free-kick! The centre-back slides into the back of Jota right on the edge of the box and fouls the Liverpool man. That was very close to being a penalty.
53' GOAL RULED OUT! VAR take a look at the goal and it appears that Ronaldo was just offside as he made his run in behind. So it remains Liverpool who lead 5-0!
52' POSSIBLE UNITED GOAL? Ronaldo might have pulled one back for United, after he sneaks in behind the Liverpool defence, after a long ball over the top by Maguire and then beats Alexander-Arnold and Keita, before firing the ball into the bottom right corner of the net. Excellent finish, but it looks like it may be ruled out for offside!
J. Henderson
Assist
50' Henderson did well to nick the ball off Pogba, before looking up and spotting the run of Salah in behind and he picks him out superbly.
Mohamed Salah
Goal
50' GOAL! SALAH HAS HIS HAT-TRICK! Pogba loses the ball in midfield and Henderson plays a superb ball in behind for Salah to sprint onto the end of and he then pokes it past De Gea and into the back of the net. Liverpool lead 5-0! The perfect start to the second half for the visitors! Salah never looked like missing.
48' There is so much space down the wings for Alexander-Arnold and Robertson to break into at the moment, with the two wing-backs constantly on the attack.
Bruno Fernandes
Yellow Card
46' Really poor challenge by Fernandes on Jones, diving in and getting nowhere near the ball. He catches the Liverpool man quite high on the leg, so it was a clear yellow card.
46' The second half is under way!
P. Pogba
M. Greenwood
46' United have made a change at the break, with Greenwood replaced by Pogba.
Surely there is no way back for United now? They were booed off at the break by the home supporters and Solskjaer has a huge task at half-time to get his players going. Liverpool will be hoping for more of the same.
What a first-half of football from Liverpool! They are beating Manchester United 4-0 at Old Trafford and they could be further ahead after some terrible defending by United. The visitors got off to a great start, with Keita opening the scoring on five minutes following a quick counter, before Jota doubled their lead eight minutes later, thanks to more poor defending by United at the back. Salah has been superb today, involved in everything in attack and he bagged an excellent brace late on to make it four at the break.
45' + 6' HALF-TIME: MAN UNITED 0-4 LIVERPOOL
Diogo Jota
Assist
45' + 5' Jota now provides an assist and sets Salah up on the edge of the box, who had time and space to pick his spot and beat De Gea.
Mohamed Salah
Goal
45' + 5' GOAL! LIVERPOOL LEAD 4-0! Liverpool once again carve open the United defence, with Firmino turning well on the edge of the penalty area, before Robertson flicks it to Jota and he finds Salah out to the right. Salah then slides the ball into the bottom right corner of the net, out of the reach of De Gea. What a first-half performance from Liverpool!
Fred
Yellow Card
45' + 3' Fred is now booked after he catches Keita with a high foot as the pair battle for the ball and the Liverpool man needs some medical attention.
Cristiano Ronaldo
Yellow Card
45' + 1' Ronaldo is lucky to just get a yellow card! He battles for the ball with Jones deep down the right wing and lashes out at the midfielder, smashing the ball into the stomach of the Liverpool man, after already producing a high foot. The visitors are not happy at all with the challenge.
45' There will be a minimum of three minutes added time played at the end of the first half.
44' It's so comfortable for Liverpool in midfield, they are keeping it well and just slowing the pace down as we approach half-time. They just need to be careful not to sit back too much and invite the United pressure in the second half.
42' There isn’t long left to play before the end of the first half, can United pull one back before the half-time whistle?
L. Shaw
Yellow Card
41' Shaw is booked for a poor challenge on Salah down the right wing. There are a lot of frustrated United players out there now.
40' It is going to be very difficult for United to get back into this one now, they need to score at least three goals against a very comfortable and confident Liverpoool side.
N. Keïta
Assist
38' Keita now has a goal and an assist, returning the favour to Salah who had set him up for his goal. The midfielder is alert to the loose ball in the box and squares it across goal to Salah, who finishes well.
Mohamed Salah
Goal
38' GOAL! SALAH MAKES IT THREE! What a first-half Liverpool are having! United are once again all over the place at the back and Liverpool make it look easy. Firmino and Salah play a quick one-two, before Salah lays it off to Jota, who sends it back to him, but his shot is blocked. The rebound then falls to Keita to the right, who sends a cross into the box and Salah gets on the end of it and fires it past De Gea. 3-0!
36' Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 25 Premier League matches against ‘United’ teams (W18 D7) since losing 2-1 away to Manchester United in March 2018.
34' Almost! Fernandes tries to pick out Ronaldo at the far post with a deep cross into the box, but Robertson tracks back well and gets a glancing touch on the ball, to take it away from Ronaldo.
32' CHANCE! Salah breaks free down the right wing after a mistake by Rashford and the striker sprints into the penalty area and tries to beat De Gea from a tight angle. However, the keeper makes himself big and pulls off a good stop. Salah perhaps should have passed to Jota in the box, who was in a better position.
31' We’re past the half an hour mark now and it’s Liverpool who remain 2-0 ahead, thanks to goals from Keita and Jota.
29' CHANCE! Greenwood finds a little bit of space on the edge of the box down the right and he powers an effort towards goal, which forces Alisson is making a save, with the keeper pushing it around the post and out for a corner.
C. Jones
J. Milner
27' Here is the enforced Liverpool change, with Milner heading off with an injury and he has been replaced in midfield by Jones.
25' It looks like Milner has a problem for Liverpool now and he may not be able to continue. The medical team are coming onto the pitch, but Jones is getting ready on the sidelines.
24' Liverpool went 2-0 up in midweek against Atletico Madrid, only to be pegged back and then eventually win the game. Meanwhile United had to come from 2-0 down to beat Atalanta in their game. Could we see a repeat today?
22' CLOSE! This is better from United, they press Liverpool deep inside their own penalty area and the ball falls to Shaw on the edge of the penalty area, who goes for goal and his effort flies inches wide of the bottom right corner. That wasn't too far away at all!
20' Stoppage in play here as Keita is down with an injury and he is receiving some treatment from the physios. However, it looks like he'll be able to run this off and should be fine to continue shortly.
19' Decent chance! United counter quickly and open Liverpool up at the back, with Fernandes finding Ronaldo just inside the box and he fires an effort towards goal. However, he gets too much on it and the ball flies high over the bar.
17' The home crowd are not happy at all with this performance from their side, they are venting their frustation and will want to see some improvement sooner rather than later.
15' Liverpool could go on and score a few goals at this rate, they look like scoring every time they get into the final third and United aren't being helped by mistakes at the back.
T. Alexander-Arnold
Assist
13' Alexander-Arnold did brilliantly to get forward on the overlap down the right and then drill a low ball into the box, which De Gea is unable to do anything about and Jota converts.
Diogo Jota
Goal
13' GOAL! LIVERPOOL DOUBLE THEIR LEAD! It comes from a huge mistake at the back by Maguire and Shaw, who don’t communicate and both of them go for the ball, but both end up missing it! Keita picks it up on the edge of the box, who lays it out to Alexander-Arnold to the right, who drills a low cross into the six-yard box and Jota is there at the far post to slide in and fire it into the back of the net. It’s 2-0!
12' Following their 4-2 win at Man Utd in May, Liverpool are looking to secure consecutive league victories at Old Trafford for the first time since January 2002.
10' Not too far away! Keita loses the ball in midfield and Rashford races forward, skipping past Henderson, who tries to bring him down. However, Rashford stays on his feet and fires a low strike towards the bottom left corner of the net, but it flies just wide.
9' It's end-to-end at the moment, there is a great pace to the game and we could see a lot of goals here today. Liverpool will be keen to double their lead early on if they can.
7' SAVE! Another Liverpool chance! Keita this time turns provider, finding Firmino in the box, who fires a low effort at goal from a tight angle. However, De Gea reads it well and makes a good stop at his near post.
Mohamed Salah
Assist
5' Salah spotted the gap between Lindelof and Maguire in defence and he was superbly picked out by Firmino, before turning and running into the final third. The striker could have gone for goal himself, but Keita was in a better position and he picked his team-mate out, who made no mistakes with the finish.
N. Keïta
Goal
5' GOAL! LIVERPOOL TAKE THE LEAD! This time it’s Liverpool who break on the counter and catch United out at the back. Firmino fires the ball into the path of Salah in behind the United defence, who gets away from Maguire and he races forward, before laying it to Keita to his right and he then only has De Gea to beat. The midfielder coolly slots the ball into the bottom right corner of the net. Very composed finish and Liverpool lead 1-0.
4' CHANCE! Great opportunity for Fernandes to fire United ahead! Konate plays a sloppy pass in midfield and it's picked up by Rashford and United counter quickly. It then comes to Greenwood on the edge of the box, who opts to pass to Fernandes to his right who had acres of space and only Alisson to beat. However, he smashes his effort wide of the post!
3' It looks like United will try and counter whenever they can, with the attacking pace of their front players. You can see them trying to jump on any mistake by Liverpool in midfield.
1' We're under way!
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just a few minutes away, stay tuned for all the match action!
Meanwhile Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to his side that beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 in midweek, with Konate and Jota coming into the starting line-up, with Matip and Mane missing out.
United name the same side that beat Atalanta in midweek, with Pogba on the bench, alongside Sancho and Cavani, as Solskjaer goes with a front four of Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford and Ronaldo. 
LIVERPOOL SUBS: Sadio Mane, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joel Matip, Curtis Jones, Konstantinos Tsimikas, Divock Origi, Adrian, Takumi Minamino, Joe Gomez.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil Van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Naby Keita; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota.
MAN UTD SUBS: Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly, Diogo Dalot, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Donny Van de Beek, Jesse Lingard, Jadon Sancho, Edinson Cavani.
MAN UTD (4-2-3-1): David De Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw; Fred, Scott McTominay; Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford; Cristiano Ronaldo.
Meanwhile Liverpool sit third and remain unbeaten this season and they bounced back from two consecutive draws, to thrash Watford 5-0 last weekend, thanks to a Roberto Firmino hat-trick. Liverpool came out on top the last time these two fierce rivals faced each other, securing a 4-2 victory.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure at Man United at the moment, having failed to win any of their last three Premier League games, after defeats against Aston Villa and Leicester City, along with a draw with Everton, to drop to seventh in the table. However, they did come from behind in the Champions League in midweek to beat Atalanta 3-2, thanks to a late Cristiano Ronaldo strike.
