Former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright believes Liverpool are currently a 'million miles' ahead of Manchester United.
The difference in quality between the two teams was on show for the world to see on Sunday afternoon, as Jurgen Klopp 's side ran riot in a 5-0 win at Old Trafford.
Mohamed Salah continued his sensational start to the season with a hat-trick, while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota opened the scoring for the Reds early on.
Paul Pogba was sent off for the Red Devils after a lunge on Keita too, capping off a miserable day for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2 , Wright pinpointed the way in which the two teams are coached as the key factor in the chasm in class on display.
"This game is hyped up as one of the biggest in the world and rightly so because of the stature of the two clubs," said Wright.
"But there's one club in Liverpool who are a million miles in front of Man United today and I think that comes down to the way they are coached to be honest. It's chalk and cheese.
"You can listen Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] there, you can listen to Harry Maguire about taking the blame on themselves but the way they are playing - it's all over the place."

Wright also praised the way in which Liverpool were able to adapt without some key players on the day.
Joel Matip and Sadio Mane were left on the bench in favour of Ibrahima Konate and Diogo Jota, who both excelled. Fabinho also missed the game, meaning Jordan Henderson took up a position as the deepest midfielder.
"Everybody knows what they're doing in that team so when people come out or people come in, nothing changes," he said.
"We know what Liverpool are going to do. They're going to close from the front and then from the back, Henderson and Keita they're going to get in."
