Full-time: Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United
Salah swishes a late effort – Liverpool’s 36th to United’s six – over and then … that’s it! Liverpool regain top spot – and United slink further into total mediocrity.
“Man of the match for me has to be Fabinho,” writes Chris Healy. “I don’t think he’s put a foot wrong all afternoon. Brilliant midfield performance. Bad news going forward for Jordan Henderson. Robertson continues to be brilliant game after game. What a player.”
I agree. It was between Fabinho and Firmino, and by the end I think the excellent Fabinho edged it.
Liam Curson has a song in his head: “I’m not even a Liverpool fan, but here’s a new terrace chant for Shaqiri based on his popstar Namesake: ‘I never really knew that he could play like this, He makes me want to say in Spanish, nuevo trabajo para Mourinho, en la mañana hasta luego’. You’re welcome!”
