Even Cristiano Ronaldo could not save his team from the wrath of spirited Liverpool as history was broken at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Manchester United made history – but unwanted ones. The 5-0 defeat marked their heaviest one at home against their bitter rivals.
Secondly, the defeat is the worst defeat against Liverpool for over a century. The last humiliating defeat was 7-1 in October 1895 when the club was yet called Newton Heath LYR F.C. – to be precise.
Furthermore, the Red Devils conceded at least five goals without scoring a single one since 1955.
Reporting from Twitter said 5 – Manchester United have suffered their heaviest ever defeat at home to Liverpool, whilst it’s the first time they have lost to-nil by 5+ goals at home since February 1955 (5-0 v Man City).
With all these unwanted history at Old Trafford, it only means that pressure is heightened for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has now dropped points and moved to the seventh position in the Premier League table.
Manchester United has just 14 points from their opening nine games of the 2021-22 campaign. This is the team that was tagged as top contenders for the English Premier League title this season.
