Shaqiri destroys United , Liverpool vs Manchester united 3 – 1
Salah, Mane, Firmino… what’s more, Shaqiri. Jurgen Klopp’s fourth Beatle stepped onto the Anfield pitch in the 70th minute and by the 80th had scored the two goals that won Liverpool the match and sent them back to the highest point of the Premier League table.
In 17 matchdays, Manchester United have just yielded more goals (29) than in the whole last Premier League season (28).
With Pogba on the bench and no minutes, Mourinho changed his arrangement (three focal safeguards), which lasted until Shaqiri did the damage.
The Red Devils now find themselves 19 points behind their opponents and well out of the Champions League places.
They are lost and without a plan, with Mourinho’s future most likely uncertain.
Klopp changed his midfield and put Salah as a No.9… and the hosts swarmed United, pressing at every possible opportunity.
De Gea made two stops from Firmino and Fabinho before Mane’s goal.
Alisson, saviour against Napoli, won’t be happy with his howler which led to Jesse Lingard making it 1-1 against the keep running of play.
The ghost of Karius had returned, yet Shaqiri tackled everything.
United were comfortable until Mane outpaced Dalot and squared for the Swiss to make it 2-1.
