The Reds needed all three points as they battle Manchester City for the title.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were near the peak of their powers and United simply couldn’t live with them.
Goals from Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah (2) and Sadio Mane gave the Reds a crushing victory.
Peter Drury, who has established himself as one of the best football commentators in the world in the past few years, was commentating on the game.
A thread showing his commentary for all four Liverpool goals has gone viral. Watch it below…
1-0: Luis Diaz (5th minute)
“Mane – that’s a smashing ball! And Salah is on his way… he rolls it in for Diaz!”
“It’s taken Liverpool next to no time. So smooth, just so smooth! Who lives with them?”

4-0: Mohamed Salah (85th minute)
“Here’s Mo Salah…
“And Salah has dinked it in delightfully. Teasingly. Tantalisingly. Magically. In front of the Kop. 4-0 Liverpool. Hitting the heights, and haunting United again.”

What a commentator. Drury just seems to make every goal that little bit better.
Liverpool’s win means they moved back to the top of the Premier League table.

Man City have a game-in-hand, though, and will retake top spot should they beat Brighton on Wednesday evening.
