Xherdan Shaqiri came off the bench in the second half to put Liverpool two goals ahead after a 25th minute opener by Sadio Mane was leveled when Jesse Lingard fired-in from Alisson's mistake.

And Jurgen Klopp has said the victory over the arch-rivals was one of the best since his reign at the Anfield.

Klopp said on his post match press conference: "It was a brilliant start, one of the best performances we've had since I was at Liverpool, to be honest.

"For the first half hour we were outstanding, scored only one, but I don't think anyone expects four or five against this United team.

"How we played was just perfect. We passed into the right areas and played in behind the lines.

"Then for half an hour we lost the momentum of the game a bit, they scored, it was more open and I had no problem with the half-time whistle to be honest. Not because United were demanding the game, but because it was more open.

"When [Marouane] Fellaini is on the pitch it's never a good sign for the other team, it is always difficult for the other team to defend these high balls, but we even did that very well.

"We got our dominance back step-by-step and Shaq closed the game. That was unbelievably nice, and deserved.

"You need a bit of luck and both goals were deflected but you need that. The first goal -- what a goal. A super pass and a super control and finish. Nearly a perfect night."
