Liverpool’s victory over Manchester United was as dominant as it was enjoyable in the end, and Reds fans certainly made the most of it.
At the end of the game, chants of ‘Don’t sack Mourinho’ could be heard ringing around Anfield, and there is now a 19-point gap between the teams.
"Don't sack Mourinho," chant Liverpool fans.

It was a night to remember as United were torn apart at times, with the gulf between the sides clear for all to see. United are now closer to Fulham at the bottom of the league than they are to the top.
These tweets summed up the reaction to the victory at the final whistle.
How many goals did Liverpool score tonight?

The Kop singing Don't sack Mourinho is one the funniest chants ever!

Thought Fabinho was brilliant today. Comfortably his best performance in a Liverpool shirt. Think a midfield of him, Keita and Gini could be the way forward. #LFC

We want United to give Jose a lifetime contract, but as a few people pointed out on Twitter, history could be about to repeat itself.
Jose Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea on the 17th December 2015.
