Premier League:

Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League after trouncing Manchester United 4-0 at Anfield.

Iran PressEurope: Luis Diaz swept them ahead in the fifth minute after an inviting cross from Mohamed Salah. If that was a good team goal, the second was even better: 25 passes, involving every player except Virgil van Dijk, culminating in a stunning ball from Mane. Salah took it in his stride and beat David de Gea with ease.

United, who were dismal in the first half, improved after the break. But just as Anfield was starting to get a little edgy, Mane made it 3-0 in the 66th minute with a clinical finish from Diaz’s cross.

Salah completed the scoring - and made it 9-0 in the two matches against United this season - after a devastating through ball from the substitute Diogo Jota.
