A delicious through pass chipped over the defense found Salah on his favourite left foot and made no mistake as he shook the net once more in this return leg as he did at Old Trafford.Half time. 2-0!
United began the second half well. Marcus Rashford was close to giving the Red Devils a life line but Alisson did very well in a one-on-one situation.That was the best chance United had.
With the final 20 minutes left, Liverpool saw off the game when Diaz found Mane who side footed into the bottom corner of the net. Klopp had sealed it at this stage of the game.
Mo Salah closed the curtains with a clever dink on David de Gea to make it 4-0. Liverpool had an aggregate score of 9-0 against Manchester United this season. It was Liverpool’s night once more as they match towards the title and put pressure on City.
