Liverpool regained their top position in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 win over Manchester United at Anfield.

Sadio Mane scored the opening goal of the game, while Xherdan Shaqiri netted a brace after coming on a substitute to seal the win. Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser to keep the away side in the game in the first half.

After a gruelling start by the Reds, they got the lead through Mane in the 24th minute when Fabinho found him with a precise straight clipped ball. The Senegalese star took it on the chest and finished in one motion.

United equalised when a Romelu Lukaku cross was spilled by Alisson and Lingard was on hand to score.

Jurgen Klopp made an inspiring substitution in bringing Xherdan Shaqiri at around the 70th-minute mark. The Swiss then scored in the 73rd minute to bring Liverpool back into the lead, via a deflection from Ashley Young.

Shaqiri then wrapped up proceedings with a one-two with Salah and Firmino, before unleashing a shot towards the corner beating David de Gea, this time with a slight deflection from Eric Bailly.
