Salah hits hat-trick as Liverpool humiliate Man United

Gulf Today Report

Liverpool handed Manchester United a historic hammer blow when Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick in a5-0 win at Old Trafford on Sunday, leaving manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clinging to his job.

For the first time in Premier League history, United trailed 4-0 at half-time and have now suffered a run of taking just one point from a possible 12 in the league.

Liverpool swept to a stunning 5-0 win at arch rivals Manchester United as Mohamed Salah's hat-trick and Paul Pogba's red card condemned the hosts to one of the darkest days in their history, while West Ham beat London rivals Tottenham on Sunday.

Ten years after Manchester City's infamous 6-1 victory at Old Trafford, Liverpool inflicted one of the most embarrassing losses United have ever suffered.

It was Liverpool's biggest win against United since 1925 and moved them seven points clear of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in the Premier League table.

Second-placed Liverpool are just one point behind leaders Chelsea as they chase the title -- an ambition which looks completely beyond hapless United after this wretched afternoon.

In a telling indictment of United's capitulation, thousands of fans left Old Trafford well before full-time.

Many supporters even fled before half-time, with those that remained loudly booing Solskjaer and his players.

United are languishing in seventh place after a fourth successive league game without a win, a dismal streak that includes three defeats.
