Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had said that Liverpool taking their chances early on was the difference between the two sides yesterday, while talking to Sky Sports.

Clinical Reds

Liverpool ran out 5-0 winners at Old Trafford on Sunday, in what was a humiliating defeat for United.

Solskjaer’s men were no match for a rampant Liverpool side, who were two goals up inside 15 minutes.

First Naby Keita converted a one-on-one, before Diogo Jota slid to poke home from close range.

United had tried to press Liverpool front the front, but were too easy to bypass.

Jurgen Klopp’s side sliced through them time after time, but when asked if he regretted his approach, the Norwegian insisted that United had to play on the front foot. 

He said: “We’re at home, we’re playing against Liverpool and have gone here over the last two and half years and had a similar approach to go high press.

“Today they scored their chances early on, they haven’t done that before.

“I think Manchester United, we should always try at home and go and stamp our authority on the game.”

Solskjaer under pressure

United’s best moments in the match actually came after they went 2-0 down to Liverpool.

The Red Devils did show some fight at the moment, but after Mohamed Salah put Liverpool 3-0 up there was no coming back.

The Reds were ruthless when presented with chances and in the end completely dominated the occasion, with Paul Pogba getting sent off.

United now trail Liverpool by seven points, even at this early stage of the season, and this defeat has put Solskjaer under huge pressure.
