At the end of the match, Jürgen Klopp's game plan was superior to that of Ralf Rangnick, who is living his last days at the helm of United, who is about to announce their new manager.
With a brace from Mohamed Salah and a goal from Sadio Mané, the Red Devils could not do much at Anfield as the first goal of the match came from Luis Díaz in the 5th minute.

The match had barely begun and the Red Devils were just getting settled on the pitch when Luis Diaz scored the first goal, making it 1-0 when he closed the pincer with which his club attacked and finished off the pass into the box that was given to him.
But in the 7th minute, the match decreased in intensity because at that moment 1 minute of applause was dedicated to Cristiano Ronaldo, who announced the death of one of the twin babies he was expecting with his partner Georgina Rodriguez.
But as soon as the minute's silence was over, the match returned to its normal intensity and hostilities continued, and the Reds turned to attack the Red Devils' area, who could not stop the real red wave that came over them.
And in the 22nd minute, Liverpool's superiority was again evident when Mohamed Salah scored a goal with a shot inside the box after a series of consecutive Liverpool passes.
With this goal, the score was 2-0, but this would not be the last goal for the home side.

Mané was also an important part of the home team's victory, as, in the 68th minute, a surprise breakaway by his club gave him a pass to the center of the box, from where he shot mercilessly to annihilate David de Gea and make it 3-0.
And this was not the last goal of the match, as, in the 85th minute, a long-distance through ball allowed Salah to score his double with a powerful shot at goal.
In this way, United remains with 54 points and sixth place in the competition after being defeated by the team coached by Jürgen Klopp, and with this defeat, they head to their next match against Arsenal.
On the other hand, Liverpool is celebrating the fact that they finally managed to steal the Premier League lead from Manchester City and if they continue with their winning streak, they could be crowned champions of the competition.
