Jurgen Klopp's team keep top-four hopes alive after 4-2 win at Old Trafford

Liverpool kept their chances of making it to next season's Champions League alive with a 4-2 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Jurgen Klopp's men still need to win their remaining three games to guarantee a place in the Premier League's top four, but cleared a big hurdle in their path with a first victory away to United since 2014.

Roberto Firmino scored twice either side of half-time after Diogo Jota cancelled out Bruno Fernandes's early opener for the home side.

Marcus Rashford's strike set up a grandstand finish, but Mohamed Salah secured a vital win in the final minute as Liverpool moved up to fifth in the table.

"We are still in the game, still in the race. That is all we could do tonight," said Klopp. "It was necessary. Without this result we don't have to talk about it."
