Liverpool Keep Top-Four Chances Alive With Win At Old Trafford
Liverpool got a comeback win against Manchester United as Jurgen Klopp celebrated his first victory at Old Trafford to boost his sides chances of a Champions League place.
In a thrilling first half, United struck first through Bruno Fernandes‘ deflected opener.
But Liverpool, who had seen one of their buses prevented from picking team members up before the game after being blocked in the street, hit back through Diogo Jota‘s instinctive effort.
Roberto Firmino, who had only scored once since his two-goal haul at Crystal Palace in December, then put his side on top with a well-taken double either side of half-time.
Marcus Rashford pulled one back for United midway through the second half but Mohamed Salah wrapped up the points with a late breakaway strike for his 21st Premier League goal of the season. His goal moved him level with Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race.
United’s place in Europe’s premier club competition next season is assured, although with this defeat they failed to secure second spot behind Manchester City.
