Biggest Liverpool victories over Manchester United in the Premier League

Liverpool registered their biggest win ever against Manchester United with an emphatic 7-0 success at Anfield on Sunday.

The visitors were the better side in the first half and Cody Gakpo’s goal two minutes before the break came against the run of play.

However, the second half was completely one-sided as the Reds destroyed their opponents with a breathtaking attacking display. 

Gakpo scored his second after Darwin Nunez’s header diverted Harvey Elliott’s cross past the goalkeeper in the 47th minute.

The Uruguayan then bagged a double while Mohamed Salah also got his name on the scoresheet twice. 

Roberto Firmino left the bench to make it 7-0 as Jurgen Klopp’s side recorded a historic win against United. 

Below we look at some of Liverpool’s biggest victories against their bitter Manchester rivals in the Premier League.

This was one of the Reds’ most outstanding victories at Old Trafford. They fell behind early after Cristiano Ronaldo scored from the spot in the 23rd minute.

But Fernando Torres restored parity eight minutes later with a cool finish before Steven Gerrard added another just before the interval. 

Fabio Aurelio and substitute Andrea Dossena also netted goals late in the game as Liverpool came away with a brilliant victory in Manchester.

The Egyptian netted his second with a low effort just before the break to give his side a four-goal half-time lead. 

Salah completed his treble early in the second half as Liverpool recorded an emphatic victory at Old Trafford.
