Liverpool did not need to reach anywhere near their peak performance but their 5-0 dismantling of Manchester United marked a significant day in the Premier League title race, according to Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville.

United were totally humiliated and Liverpool did everything that was asked of them, picking apart their opponents with precision to secure the biggest win over their arch rivals at Old Trafford.

Carragher told Sky Sports: “No I can’t. I’m not trying to be clever here but I don’t think Liverpool were at their absolute best in terms of actual possession.

“Certainly throughout that first half, they gave Manchester United opportunities by losing the ball but whenever they made passes and got in and around United’s back four… that’s just a joke of a back four, the way it is playing.

“Manchester United and Liverpool are the biggest rivals perhaps in world football, two huge clubs in the North-west of England and I’ve a huge respect for what both clubs have achieved, but you’re not going to get that opportunity too often.

“This is a special Liverpool team with a special manager. The three teams at the top of the Premier League alongside Bayern Munich are the four best teams in Europe. We’ve got real quality in the Premier League.”
