Though United conceded one goal in the second half which led to the visitors leveling up, but Solksjaer’s men gave a devastating second-half display that saw them demolish their visitors.
Liverpool who travelled to Norwich inflicted pains on the newly promoted side whose fans jeered to encourage their team but were met with a poisonous attack triggered by Mohammed Sallah.
