Liverpool goal scoring great John Aldridge believes his former club have now moved ahead of Manchester United after their comprehensive Europa League win against their old foes.

Sunday World columnist Aldo gives his verdict on Liverpool's 3-1 win against United in this weekend's paper, with his verdict damning on Van Gaal and his Old Trafford flops.

"I will not get carried away by what we saw from Liverpool over the two Europa League games against Manchester United because the opposition were poor for the majority of both matches," he writes.

"Liverpool could have ended up winning the tie 8-1 on aggregate – that is not exaggerating. Don’t let the scoreline disguise a very clear reality here. Liverpool were a mile ahead of United."
