Liverpool’s greatest ever victory over Manchester United, has it sank in yet?

Manchester United embarrassed.

A Cody Gakpo brace.

A Darwin Nunez brace.

A record-breaking Mo Salah brace.

A Roberto Firmino goal to tug on the heart strings.

A Gary Neville head loss.

All because Liverpool beat Manchester United 7-0.

Seven goals to nil, something which quite frankly would have been beyond the wildest dreams of every Liverpool fan at Anfield and watching on around the world.

Again, just in case you think this is a dream, seven nil.

It’ll go down in the history books as one of the most remarkable results of all-time and Liverpool were only one up at half-time then in the second half the front three, the new front three, showed a glimpse of what they can do when playing at their absolute zenith.

After it was announced that Roberto Firmino, one of the all-time Liverpool greats, would be leaving at the end of the season it was only right that the player who had been brought in to try and replace the original false nine in this side went onto score the opening goal.

Andy Robertson found him with a delicious ball and Gakpo sent Raphael Varane to the shops before lashing it in the bottom right corner.

It will have certainly settled the nerves just before half-time in a key game as The Reds looked to chase top four however it was unfathomable what that goal did to Manchester United.

You’d have thought a half-time break would have given them the chance to reset and compose themselves.

Five minutes into the second half it was 3-0 and all but over for the bitter enemies from Manchester.

Blink and you would have missed it, you would have missed one of the implosions of the season, one of the biggest implosions in Premier League history.

Heads had gone down, passing the ball became the most difficult thing ever and some of the players main goal became to start hurting the Liverpool side who were bullying them all over the park.

This was the exact same starting line-up that had won the first major trophy of the season a week ago.

Darwin Nunez, the fan favourite, got the second with an instinctive header and the third was like watching a prime Jurgen Klopp Liverpool side with the new boy Gakpo linking up with the old guard in Mo Salah for a breath-taking counter-attack goal which was finished off with the most delicate of chips from the Dutchman which had shades of Phillipe Coutinho’s goal against David De Gea back in 2016.

Four came, it was Salah. It would have been more of a surprise if he hadn’t scored against his favourite side and it was an absolute rocket with his so called weaker foot.

Given all the build-up about how Erik Ten Haag’s side were on the up and Liverpool, in Rio Ferdinand’s words, had stagnated to be four up will have put the fans in dreamland.

What was to come will have sent them into utopia.

Number five and number six then chants of we want seven.

We want seven the Liverpool crowd had the audacity to sing against their most fierce of rivals, that’s how good this was for them.

The fifth was another Darwin header and it was an absolute peach from the Uruguayan who is making everyone who called him a flop look very very silly.

The sixth was a piece of history which saw Salah throw his shirt as an instinctive finish saw him become Liverpool’s outright top goal scorer in the Premier League on 129 goals to really show how he is most definitely one of the greats of this division.

Then the seventh, the goal that Anfield had sucked in and the goal that they all wanted from kick-off.

Roberto Firmino, Bobby, Si Senor the Bobby dazzler. The one who has been the reason why Liverpool have had so much success under Klopp.

He came on to one of the best receptions any player could have had at Anfield then he got his goal with his celebration which you could tell meant so much in what would have been the most emotional of weeks for him after he told the manager who has adored him from the first day he walked in that this will be the last season he is here.

The perfect day for Liverpool fans, even more than perfect if that is possible and it was topped off with one of the greats of this club getting his goal.

Not quite a farewell goal yet as there will be no doubt that the Brazilian mad man will have another part to play as The Reds push for top four.

The fact they are only going for top four after beating Manchester United 7-0 doesn’t feel right because the Liverpool side who are capable of destroying anyone and everyone are still there.

Now they need to keep it up so the new young fresh front three are playing in the competition they deserve to be in next season.

You never know they might even have more than just the one game left in the Champions League this campaign.

Bournemouth is next though and those games have been the banana skins for Klopp which he certainly knows.

There was a reason why he didn’t do the fist bumps at the end of the game, he needs the fans to keep pushing his side.

He is a tease but he knows how to orchestrate a crowd who are indeed so glad that he is a red.
