Jurgen Klopp explains why Liverpool started their annihilation of Manchester United without Sadio Mane on the bench.

Liverpool thrashed their biggest rivals Manchester United 5-0 at Old Trafford, shattering a slew of records in the process.

Klopp put Diogo Jota in the starting lineup with Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Klopp told Sky Sports ahead of the game:

"We have to use the squad, that's how it is.

"In a game like this, you don't want to be changing six or seven times.

"But Diogo before the international break was in outstanding scoring form then went to the national team, slightly injured and needed a little bit of time to come back."
