Jurgen Klopp was blanked by Sadio Mane at FT of Man United 2-4 Liverpool

Liverpool produced a brilliant performance to beat Manchester United 4-2 at Old Trafford on Thursday evening.

The Reds needed all three points to keep their hopes of finishing in the top four alive but they fell behind after 10 minutes when Bruno Fernandes struck.

Liverpool battled back and scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-1 lead five minutes into the second half.

United weren't going away though and reduced the deficit to one-goal once again when Marcus Rashford found the back of the net.

But Liverpool would secure all three points courtesy of Mo Salah's breakaway goal in stoppage time.

He said: "No, there's no problem. I made a late decision yesterday in training to go for Diogo [Jota].

"The boys are used to that. I usually explain things but there was no time. It's all fine."

Graeme Souness wasn't as forgiving a Klopp, though, describing Mane's actions as 'disrespectful'.

Liverpool have now moved up to fifth in the Premier League thanks to their crucial win at Old Trafford.
