Former Liverpool star Michael Owen has revealed why the Reds thrashed Manchester United 7-0 in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday.
The Red Devils were condemned to their heaviest defeat in 92 years by Liverpool, with 2 goals each from Mo Salah and Cody Gakpo. Darwin Nunez and one from Roberto Firmino
Manchester United came into Sunday’s clash flying high after winning the Carabao Cup last weekend.
Owen, who played for both Liverpool and Manchester United during his playing days, noted that Jurgen Klopp’s side made use of every opportunity presented to them.
“They were ruthless." They scored virtually every chance in that second half. They were pretty ruthless with whatever they were given. Gakpo was rootless, with Mo Salah breaking the record. You almost need to see it to believe it. It was stunning.
“And this is the Manchester United that came into the game with everybody raving about them, that they were flying high in all four competitions and won one competition, maybe an outside chance of winning the Premier League. They were coming here flying high, and the question was Liverpool’s name,” he said on Premier League Productions.
