Mohamed Salah And Four Other Players Who Scored Hat-tricks Against Manchester United In The EPL.

Manchester United's five nil humiliation at the hands of Liverpool at Old Trafford did not go down well with supporters of the club, as some fans are calling for the sack of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Reds won both halves of the game, scoring four in the first-half and one in the second-half.

The result sees Manchester United record their third loss since the beginning of this season's campaign and sees them fall out of the top four position.
