PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Somehow, someway, Liverpool's top-four charge continues on. After appearing to have run the battery flat at several key signposts this season, the spluttering Reds, a team who have been running on empty for months seemingly, could now be set for the most almighty of late surges. It appears to be against all logic and comprehension but Jurgen Klopp and his players may still have their names in that hat when the Champions League draw takes place in August. And in the grand scheme of things, this victory - this absorbing call-to-arms at Old Trafford - could yet register as one of the biggest league wins of Klopp's tenure. If it is to be the catalyst that culminates in a place in next season's European Cup after one of the most bitterly frustrating campaigns in recent memory, then it would be hard to disagree with that assessment.

Their first victory at Manchester United since March 2014 catapults them right back into the thick of it as the season closes in on its final days. It is still not in their own hands, but Klopp and his players are doing their utmost to ensure they make the most of any lapses from Leicester and Chelsea as a troublesome Premier League campaign for the Reds draws to a merciful close. Now just four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea - who still have to play a Leicester side in third - Liverpool, with a game in hand, are poised to pounce from here as they wrap up their season against West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace over the next 10 days. Given the circumstances of a patched-up defence, a confidence-hit frontline and an injury list as long as your arm, this must surely represent the best performance of Liverpool's season. Achieved without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, James Milner, Ozan Kabak, Naby Keita or captain Jordan Henderson, that Liverpool seized the day at a venue that so often inhibits them was mightily impressive. This did not always appear to be on the cards though as the visitors, true to form here, started poorly.

United took the lead inside 10 minutes when Bruno Fernandes' effort appeared to be going wide before Nat Phillips' attempts to get rid only saw him deflect it past Alisson Becker. Liverpool thought they had a chance from the spot to even things up after Phillips went down under a firm challenge from Eric Bailly. Referee Anthony Taylor immediately pointed to the spot before changing his mind after a subsequent check of the monitor. Almost from nothing, though, Liverpool rallied and it was Diogo Jota whose sublime flick got them back into it after Phillips' shot had drifted across the face of the goal. The Reds appeared to take an abundance of energy from their leveller as passes started to find their men with more regularity and players were keen to run beyond the United defence.

. Pick your Liverpool MOTM here It hasn't been a vintage season for the Brazil forward but this was textbook No.9 stuff as he rose highest to nod past Henderson and give his side a precious lead at the break. Firmino wasted little time adding to his tally when he pounced on Henderson's spilled attempt to stop Alexander-Arnold's shot to make it 3-1. He had scored just one goal in 23 games before his quick-fire double either side of half-time, a brace that was timed at around three minutes. It's been tough for the Reds' No.9 this term, but this has to be the springboard towards a renewed vigour for a flamboyant Firmino who has looked strangely subdued for far too long. Jota then hit the post from a wonderful counter-attack before the excellent Alexander-Arnold was denied by Henderson as Liverpool turned a screw they hadn't touched in years at Old Trafford.

As the Red Devils pushed further up the pitch in search of yet another comeback, Liverpool still had one last punishing counter-attack up their sleeve as Curtis Jones released Salah to confidently convert his 30th goal of an incredible personal campaign. It's Salah's best return since he bagged a remarkable 44 in his debut season at Anfield and with Jota and Firmino back among the goals in style, suddenly those worrying problems in front of goal could dissolve for Klopp. Will Liverpool make the top four? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. The only slight issue was the lingering frustration of substitute Sadio Mane who appeared to shun his manager as the post-match handshakes were being dished out. How things might have been so different if Liverpool had performed like this more often. That, though, is probably best left unsaid. If they can squeeze into this top four, you get the feeling that little will be gleaned from too much of an inquest into how it even came to this for last year's champions. For now, Liverpool roll on. A campaign that has taken so much might just be about to give something back.
