It looked like being one of those games after half-time — United were fortuitously level after an Alisson error and Mourinho had set up to resort Liverpool to long shots outside the penalty area; however Shaqiri, who was brought on for Keita with around 25 minutes to go, changed the complexion of the game completely.

Taking a shot from outside the area, it ended up in the back of the net after a deflection, while a carbon copy happened merely moments later, where another deflected shot from the Swiss took it past De Gea.

Fans were quick to praise the ex-Stoke man on Twitter, keen to remember just how much of a bargain he was for only £13.5m:

Able to operate across all of the front three and even in midfield, Shaqiri has proved to be an absolute bargain since his arrival from Stoke City in the summer — even more remarkable considering he was initially signed as a squad player.

With two goals against United, he has already written himself into Liverpool folklore today.
