Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he has come too far to give up now, although his side were embarrassed 5-0 by Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Mohamed Salah shone with a hat-trick, while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota scored once again in the most convincing victory of Jurgen Klopp’s team against United.
Solskjaer said that defeat was his darkest day as coach, but insisted it would continue.
“We know we have reached the end, we can not feel worse than that. Let’s see,” said Solskjaer after the match.
“I have come a long way, we have come a long way as a group. We are very close now to give up,” he added.
This was Liverpool’s deepest victory at Old Trafford and set a series of undesirable records for Manchester United.
Many United fans left the stadium when their team conceded the fourth goal at the end of the first half.
Liverpool remain unbeaten this season in the league and now collect 21 points in second place, just one less than leader Chelsea.
Manchester United, who suffered their third defeat in the league this season, fall to seventh place with 14 points.
