Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed his disappointment at his side’s heavy defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford.

United suffered a 5-0 hammering at the hands of bitter rivals Liverpool at home in the Premier League on Sunday.

Naby Keita put the Reds in the lead after five minutes, and Diogo Jota doubled the advantage on 13 minutes.

Mohamed Salah scored twice late in the first half to make it 4-0 to manager Jurgen Klopp’s side by half time.

The Egypt international forward competed his hat-trick in the 50th minute of the match.

Solskjaer told United’s official website: “It’s not easy to say something apart from it’s the darkest day I’ve had leading these players and we weren’t good enough, individually and as a team.

“You can’t give a team like Liverpool those chances, unfortunately we did. The whole performance wasn’t good enough, that’s for sure.

“We’ve created openings, they’ve had chances and they’ve been clinical. We didn’t take our chances early on and the third goal is the one that decided the game.”

United are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 14 points from nine matches.

The Red Devils are three points behind fourth-placed West Ham United and eight points behind leaders Chelsea.

United can be backed at 60/1 on Betfair to win the Premier League table this season.
