Manchester United locked horns with Liverpool at Anfield earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a good result on the road. The Red Devils made a solid start to the game but conceded the opening goal in the 43rd minute when Cody Gakpo scored with a clinical finish. The Mancunian club went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.
Man United produced a horror performance in the second half as they conceded two quick goals with Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo scoring for the home team respectively. Salah made it 4-0 for Liverpool in the 66th minute before Nunez scored again for the Merseyside club. Erik ten Hag’s men conceded two goals late in the game and crashed to a humiliating 7-0 loss away from home.
Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the match against the Reds.
GK: David de Gea – 4/10
The Spaniard made just one save in the game and conceded seven goals tonight.
RB: Diogo Dalot – 7/10
He worked his socks off on the defensive end of the pitch and was a threat going forward.
CB: Raphael Varane – 5/10
The French defender struggled to cope with the pace of the Liverpool attackers and produced a disappointing display inside his half.
CB: Lisandro Martinez – 6/10
Martinez produced a battling display this evening but was not able to stop the opposition attackers from wreaking havoc.
LB: Luke Shaw – 6/10
He was far from convincing at the back but managed to engineer a couple of inviting chances in the final third.
CM: Casemiro – 6.5/10
Casemiro anchored the midfield well at times but lacked quality on the ball.
CM: Fred – 6/10
He earned the ball back twice but failed to get into the rhythm of the game.
RW: Antony – 5.5/10
Antony caused some headaches for the opposition but failed to register a goal.
CAM: Wout Weghorst – 6/10
He worked hard in the Liverpool half but never got a sniff at goal.
LW: Bruno Fernandes – 6/10
Fernandes failed to cause any problems for the opposition defenders and put in a lackluster display on the left wing.
ST: Marcus Rashford – 6/10
Rashford was ten Hag’s best hope for a goal this evening. However, he could only manage to hit the post.
LW: Alejandro Garnacho – 6/10
He offered very little after coming on as a substitute.

McTominay lacked quality both on and off the ball.
