Mane & Van Dijk: Reds fully deserved victory against United”

Manchester United have had a torrid start to the 2018-19 campaign and find themselves sitting sixth in the Premier League standings after 16 matches, a whopping 18 points adrift of leaders Manchester City and 16 points behind second-placed Liverpool.

Virgil van Dijk revealed the motivation Liverpool had to "make it right" against Manchester United after the first Premier League victory over their arch-rivals since March 2014.

The opening exchanges went in the way of the Reds as a relentless wave of pressure had Man United teetering on the brink and Jurgen Klopp's men on the cusp of breaking the dam wall.

"It was an fantastic win and important, too".

He added, "Our start to the season is wonderful - a record in the club's history", he said.

"When you see the statistics, we did everything in this game to win".

"I want that too so I try to perform always when I am on the pitch, to help the team, to score goals, to give assists, and I'm very happy at the moment with my performances".

"There is no doubt that some of these Manchester United defenders are capable but they need that figurehead, that leader who could guide them".

"Our start to the season is amazing-a record in the club's history". We were prepared and we knew about their strengths. In the first-half we were going a lot through the middle, but they were winning balls and unsafe at times.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is "more excited and determined" to succeed this season after establishing a reputation as one of the best players in the world.

After again proving his game-changing abilities, Shaqiri was the name on many lips following the clash.

"That's what we did and in the end, big Shaq came on and did the job for us".

"We are on a good way [but] we've still got nothing - we need to keep going and take the positive notes out of everything that happened, and the things that could have gone better as well, analyse them and make sure we're ready for Wolves", added the No.4.
