Manchester United 0-5 Liverpool: Old Trafford Player Ratings | Premier League

Manchester United

David De Gea The only United man who did his job. Salah’s next post save was top notch and he was impeccable for every goal. 7

Aaron Wan-Bissaka Like all the fullbacks did zero to prevent Liverpool’s goal and also was a non-event at the other end. 3

Victor Lindelöf Was part of a shocking defensive horror show and only marginally better than Maguire. 3

Harry Maguire Amateurishly mixed up with Shaw for the Jota finish and was awol the entire match. A boy against the Liverpool men. 2

Luke Shaw Covered for slack midfield, Keïta played inside his goal, then collided embarrassingly with Maguire in second place. 4

Scott McTominay Hope to forget – but will not be able to – his absent performance on this nightmarish day. 4

Peace Left hole in midfield for the first goal and was unable to stop floating attacks by them in red. 4

Murer Greenwood In anticipation of his next move, the youngster was sharp before being sacrificed for Pogba at the break. 6

Bruno Fernandes Missed badly after three minutes, the Portuguese was removed in the second half: he may have been grateful. 5

Marcus Rashford Every race he tried often found unnecessary dead ends as the fight passed him by. Taken off. 4

Cristiano Ronaldo Had what would have been a consolation, chalked away for offside and was peripheral as lonely forward. 5

Replaced: Paul Pogba (for Greenwood, ht) 1 (sent off); Diogo Dalot (for Rashford, 62) 4; Edinson Cavani (for Fernandes, 62) 4.

Liverpool

Allison Underemployed, No. 1 was a happy witness to the relentless push of his 10 outfield colleagues. 7

Trent Alexander-Arnold The right-back’s penchant for driving races and his sweet sense of position were evident in a distinguished outing. 7

Virgil van Dijk The center-back will not be happy with defensive sloppiness in the first half, but in reality it did not matter. 7

Ibrahima Konate A third Liverpool appearance began with a mistake that predicted a Fernandes chance. But will be a happy man. 6

Andy Robertson A constant outflow along the left, so the full-back was ordered to keep his teammates until the end. 7

Jordan Henderson An excellent pass outside the boot played in Salah for his third in a compound midfield performance. 7

Near Keita Cool finish to opener before creating Salahs opener, but was later, unfortunately, carried off after the Pogba challenge. 8

James Milner The 35-year-old was forced away after an ugly-looking twist on his right foot in the 19th minute. 5

Mohamed Salah Excellent. Memorable hat trick from the Egyptian genius who scored Liverpool’s third, fourth and fifth. 9

Roberto Firmino Constantly finding space, the Brazilian was often an extra midfielder in Liverpool’s fluid offensive pattern. 7

Who Preferred to Mané, and drove to the far post to hit Liverpool’s second, which justified Jürgen Klopp’s decision. 8

Replaced: Curtis Jones (for Milner, 27) 7; Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (for Keita, 64) 6; healthy mane (for Firmino, 77) 6.
