Liverpool vs Manchester United points: Reds move back to first when Shaqiri plays the hero from the bench

Liverpool is back to first place in the Premier League after dominating rival Manchester United 3-1 on Sunday at Anfield. The match was half-time, but an inspired Xherdan Shaqiri left the bench and scored twice for Reds, who continued his domination of the red devils and ran over Manchester City back to the top spot. Here are three takeaways from the big game: New Boys Rise Large Since his big money moved from AS Monaco, Fabinho has not exactly hit Liverpool. But the Brazilian has enormous quality, and when matched with confidence, he can change a game in just a second. That was what he did in the first half when he helped Sadio Manes opener 24 minutes in. Check out the calm to take a ball over the back and find Mane, who did the rest: Which world class ball. And then it was Shaqir's turn. The Swiss star, rejected last season with Stoke City, made this winner with an attentive and successful ending: A rare blunder from Alisson Liverpool is another team this season and Alisson in goal is why . He has been quite spectacular and saved Reds in the Champions League midweek against Naples.

New Boys Rise Large

Since his big money moved from AS Monaco, Fabinho has not exactly hit Liverpool. But the Brazilian has enormous quality, and when matched with confidence, he can change a game in just a second. That was what he did in the first half when he helped Sadio Manes opener 24 minutes in.

Check out the calm to take a ball over the back and find Mane, who did the rest:

Which world class ball.

And then it was Shaqir’s turn. The Swiss star, rejected last season with Stoke City, made this winner with an attentive and successful ending:

A rare blunder from Alisson

Liverpool is another team this season and Alisson in goal is why . He has been quite spectacular and saved Reds in the Champions League midweek against Naples.

Here he sees this and reminds of many of the problems that Loris Karius had last season:

Now all goalkeepers are drowning. The best of them do, but Liverpool fans will be reminded of the Champions League final last season when they see this again. Thank you for them, this was not nearly as expensive. Having a pair in the Premier League matches will be allowed as long as he does not have these in the knockout-stage Champions League matches.

Back in the first and feel good

Do not look now, but Liverpool is back in the first place and plays with a ton of confidence. Whether this team can ward off Manchester City remains to be seen, but we can be on for a tight finish the spring came.

It’s hard to believe, but Liverpool has never won the Premier League title. Could this be the year? The addition of Alisson has been massive for this, and the attacking trio is still high-ranking.

City, currently still favorite, but the fact that Liverpool is undefeated in the league and improved on the back can not be ignored. This can only be the year. The red is back in the Premier League action Friday to Wolverhampton on fuboTV (try for free).
