#LIVMUN: Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United
Liverpool’s procession towards their first title in 30 years continued with a hard-fought win over Manchester United at Anfield. A win that extended their lead at the top of the table to 16 points with a game in hand.
Second-place Manchester City drew 2-2 with Crystal Palace on Saturday and Liverpool, who still possess a game in hand, took full advantage to tighten their grip at the top and boost their chances of a first league title since 1990.
Trent Alexander-Arnold’s delivery from the right found the head of Van Dijk, who had the run on Brandon Williams and Harry Maguire to power the ball beyond David de Gea for Liverpool’s first goal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side rallied in the second half, but it was to no avail as Salah struck and Liverpool march relentlessly on, with 21 wins from their first 22 games as United.
United do remain the only team to take points off Liverpool this season but – without the injured Marcus Rashford – there was to be no repeat here for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
