As Liverpool head into their final few games, this fixture arguably represented their biggest test of the Premier League run-in.

The Reds need to be pretty much perfect to have a chance of qualifying for Champions League football next season, and victory over their biggest rivals provided a much-needed confidence boost.

Chelsea’s home defeat to Arsenal and the fact the Blues still have to play Leicester City meant Liverpool could just sneak into the top four by beating West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace in succession after victory over United at Old Trafford.

It started poorly as Nat Phillips directed Bruno Fernandes’ shot into his own net, but a rally saw the Reds lead 2-1 at the break.

Roberto Firmino got his second of the game minutes into the second half, though Marcus Rashford struck to bring the home side back into the game.

But a late breakaway sealed the game, as Mohamed Salah took advantage of the space left by United’s push for an equaliser to race clear and stroke beyond Dean Henderson.
