Liverpool won 9-0 against Manchester United. Obviously not that night. That’s an overall score from two league games, another rewrite of the record books, good and poor.

Naturally, this is good news for Liverpool, who have never beaten Manchester United by such a large margin in a single season. In 1895-96, they overcame Newton Heath in this manner, and that club later evolved into the contemporary Manchester United, so it all depends on how one perceives history.

Still, green and gold is a popular color scheme at Old Trafford these days, so perhaps this was the players’ own tribute to it. In the modern period, no side has ever scored eight goals in two Premier League games, let alone nine, and that includes Manchester City’s 6-1 victory at Old Trafford in 2011-12. In the rematch, they only managed a 1-0 victory.

So there were five away from home and four at home, and we all know it could have been more. The biggest affront of the night was Liverpool’s treatment of United throughout much of the game, despite leading by two goals with less than a quarter of the game played. If United had equalized, which seemed unlikely, there was a chance Liverpool may have extended their lead. After 68 minutes, that was undoubtedly the case for the third.

United had been having their best period of the game, which is akin to being considered the smartest mind on the government front benches or the least annoying member of Just Stop Oil, mostly thanks to the introduction of Jadon Sancho as a half-time substitute, when Liverpool simply cut through them and put the game to sleep.

Liverpool had an easy time of it. From Manchester United’s perspective, it was disgracefully, embarrassingly simple. It wasn’t just the blazing start to a two-goal lead, but the entire tone of the game. Only a few minutes had passed when Alisson, Liverpool’s goalkeeper, turned Bruno Fernandes in the way that Fernandes would hope to turn a Liverpool defender, but he didn’t, not once.

De Gea, on the other hand, blasted one into the crowd under minimal pressure. And so it went on. Manchester United are not a threat, whereas Liverpool are always dangerous; Manchester United are anxious at the back, whereas Liverpool are omnipotent; Manchester United are battling to express themselves, whilst Liverpool are calm, composed, and nearly always in command.

This is quite concerning for United. This game has always been a struggle, regardless of the conditions. An weaker United squad would always have a chance to knock Liverpool off their perch; Liverpool, even while winning trebles, never gave in to the notion that Sir Alex Ferguson’s team was superior. The world has changed. This United team is no longer a threat to Liverpool. It is said that they do not make an effort. Perhaps they are simply incompetent. They didn’t appear to have what it took to stop Liverpool from winning.

Midway through the first half, Alisson made a fast and perfect counter-attacking pass to Diaz on the left that was better than anything United had played all night. Forward passes were frequently frantic and overhit.

Paul Pogba only lasted 10 minutes before limping off injured – given his relationship with the club and his form, it could be his final appearance in a United shirt, and it was about as forgettable as many of the others – and during that time he hit one truly dreadful aimless forward ball that summed up United’s sloppy attitude. Victor Lindelof was stranded with two Liverpool players on him at one point, and he begged Aaron Wan-Bissaka to make an angle, but the winger refused. As a result, it was given to a Liverpool resident.

There’s a lot more to Liverpool than meets the eye. Wit, intelligence, and a strong work ethic. They made 438 passes to United’s 144 in the first 45 minutes, 401 of which were successful to United’s 92, while Thiago Alcantara alone completed 60 passes, all but one of which were successful. There isn’t a single Manchester United player who would fit into this Liverpool squad, and it showed.

The reverse encounter in October eluded United so quickly that it became one of the defeats that pushed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer out the door, but Liverpool’s first goal here came three seconds faster than it did in October.

It was a wonderful, fast move, as one would expect from Liverpool. Salah beat Trent Alexander-Arnold to the ball – it was a foot sprint, United didn’t seem to have a man in it – and his cross was met by Diaz, who pushed the ball beyond a hapless De Gea.

Since signing, he has scored three goals: left foot, right foot, and a header. Another recruitment success for Liverpool; another aspect of the game that the Reds make look simple in compared to United. The move that highlighted everything Liverpool has and what United lacks was when they scored again.

A total of 25 passes were exchanged between ten Liverpool players, including Alisson in goal. Virgil van Dijk was the only player that was not involved. The closing exchanges, on the other hand, were lightning fast. Joel Matip to Diaz, back to Matip, to Mane, and expertly threaded through to leave Salah on his own. He last scored on March 12 against Brighton and February 23 against Leeds at Anfield, but he handled it like he was on one of his legendary hot runs. He was not going to miss this opportunity.
