   Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men went into the halftime break four goals down – the largest margin ever in their history at that stage of a game.

  Salah fed Naby Keita to open the scoring before Jota slid in to make it 2-0.

   The Egyptian then scored twice before referee Anthony Taylor blew for the break.

  Salah added his third moments into the second half before Paul Pogba was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Keita.

  His three goals on Sunday make him the top-scoring African player in Premier League history, overtaking former Chelsea forward Didier Drogba by two goals.

   Liverpool climb back into second place with 21 points, one behind leaders Chelsea, while United are in seventh place with 14 points.

   Meanwhile, Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has insisted he will not resign following a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

   The game saw United fans walk out of the stadium as early as the 50th minute, amid calls for the Norwegian to resign or be sacked.
