There was a lot on the line for this weekend.
Not just because Manchester United and Liverpool are playing in the North-West derby. This game is also important because Manchester United only got one point out of their last three Premier League matches.
Old Trafford could have been transformed by a positive result against the number two side in the Premier League. Mancunians, however, had to deal with a completely different set of events.
Salah the conqueror
Manchester United faced Liverpool in this game. The man who deserves all the praise is Mohamed Salah. In his current form, Salah is the best player on earth.
His performance against Manchester United reiterated this statement. He consistently performs. No matter where he plays, Mohamed Salah always delivers whether he plays against Norwich City, Atletico Madrid or Manchester United!
Naby Keita scored the opening goal with an assist from Salah.
In the second half, Liverpool doubled their lead thanks to Diogo Jota. In the 38th to 50th minutes, the Egyptian king scored three goals. The goals came against the country’s biggest rivals in a short period of time.
This year, he should have a strong chance of winning the Ballon d’Or.
Ole is out of Old Trafford?
Liverpool won 0-5 thanks to Salah’s hat-trick. Man United’s defeat is heartbreaking. Such losses will always be devastating to any club.
Management will be put under more pressure. Because of Manchester United’s current form, it isn’t impossible that the manager will be sacked this week.
Since Naby Keita’s opening goal, #oleout has been trending on Twitter. For Manchester United fans, this is enough.
The team wants to see Ole gone. It shouldn’t be too hard to find a replacement since Zinedine Zidane and Antonio Conte are both unemployed.
