Liverpool unbeatable run to end 30 years Premier League title drought continues with a well-targeted 2-0 victory over Manchester United at Anfield as Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah shines.
The Red’s victory at Anfield extends their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 16 points with a game in hand, which pose little or no threat to the hopes of the Champions League defenders to lift the Premier League title.
Very brilliantly, Jurgen Klopp’s side held control of the match although later faced late pressure from the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as they defended Virgil van Dijk’s 14th-minute header before concluding the victory in style in injury time, goalkeeper Alisson’s long clearance setting Mohamed Salah clear to spark celebrations among fans which was a clear proof that the long wait will end soon.
Liverpool could have defeated Man United with more goals if not that Roberto Firmino goal was contentiously cancelled by VAR for Van Dijk’s foul on David de Gea, while Man United keeper touched Jordan Henderson’s shot on to the post and Mohamed Salah lost an open goal from six yards away.
Man United also had some brilliant chances that would have probably turn things around them as Andreas Pereira turned wide of an open goal in the first half and Anthony Martial struck over the top from an inviting position after the break.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side increased their effort in the second half to change the story, but none worked as Egyptian star, Salah blazed brilliantly and Liverpool extends their unbeaten record with 21 victories from their first 22 games, while Man United, the only team to dent their record this season, was plotted for a trash.
