‘Monumental score… everything about it was staggering’: Michael Owen on Liverpool beating Manchester United 7-0

After watching his former side blow Manchester United out of the water with a 7-0 scoreline, Liverpool legend Michael Owen lauded the result as a turning point for the under-performing club’s season. “They were pretty ruthless. The over-riding headline is that it’s seven goals. You almost have to see it to believe it. And this was a United team coming into the game with everyone raving about them. They were flying high, and there were question marks really by Liverpool’s name.
