Liverpool's 7-0 win over Man United 'one of the best performances for a long time': Klopp

Ammon News - Jurgen Klopp hailed Liverpool's 7-0 thrashing of Manchester United as "one of the best performances for a long time" as the Reds set a new record margin of victory in the clash between English football's two most successful clubs.

Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah all scored twice while substitute Roberto Firmino, who will leave Liverpool at the end of the season, rubbed more salt into United's wounds by rounding off the scoring at Anfield.

"It was one of the best performances for a long, long time. Everybody saw what the boys can be," said Klopp.

"The second half couldn't start better. From that moment on we were flying and it was really difficult to play against us."

It was United's worst competitive defeat in more than 90 years. United have lost 7-0 on three previous occasions – the last time coming in 1931 against Wolves. The score also eclipsed Liverpool’s previous best victory against United, a 7-1 win in 1895.

“A few months ago everyone thought it was a good moment to play Liverpool – you can’t say it publicly but everyone thought it – because they felt we were struggling a lot," Klopp added. "But now it is less of a good moment, we look much more like ourselves. It is important that everyone knows we are here and we are still alive.”

A landmark win could be the launchpad for a powerful finish to the campaign for Liverpool. Until recently, even a Champions League qualifying top-four finish looked in doubt, with Liverpool suffering bruising losses to Brentford, Brighton and Wolves since the start of 2023.

This win, however, closes the gap to fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur to three points with a game in hand.

It was also evidence of a growing understanding between Liverpool’s new-look attack.
