Liverpool smash Manchester United

Liverpool and Manchester United are currently playing out a Premier League tie at Old Trafford.

However, with 45 minutes gone at the time of writing, there is only one team actually playing at a Premier League level.

United looked absolutely horrendous throughout the first half, with their defence basically non-existent.

Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire have been two of the worst players on the pitch, though, in truth, essentially every member of the hosts’ XI has been less than subpar.

Liverpool, in turn, took advantage of such struggles by racking up a staggering four goals in the first half.

Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah (2) found themselves on the scoresheet before the half-time whistle.
