🌯 Super Sunday wrap: Ole's darkest day, Ajax hammer PSV & stalemates across Europe

The biggest story of the weekend undoubtedly played out at Old Trafford with Liverpool's 5-0 thrashing of Man United. 

Alarm bells will be ringing for Ole Gunnar Solskjær whose United side has failed to keep a clean sheet in any of its last ten home matches in the Premier League. With just one point from the last 12 on offer, pressure is mounting on the Red Devils and their beleaguered boss.

To make matters worse, Paul Pogba, a second-half substitute, was sent off on the hour mark for a nasty studs-up challenge on the scorer of the game's opening goal, Naby Keïta. The Guinean midfielder was stretchered off.

For Liverpool, the sensational form of superstar attacker Mo Salah continues; the Egyptian has now found the net in ten consecutive appearances for the Reds and he seems to be tearing up different pages of the record books on a weekly basis now.

Salah is the first Liverpool player to score a top-flight hat-trick at Old Trafford since Fred Howe back in November 1936. He's the fifth player ever to score an EPL treble against United and the first to do so at Old Trafford in the competition's current guise since rebranding in August 1992. The last visiting player to score three at Old Trafford in any competition? The great Brazilian Ronaldo for Real Madrid in 2003.

David Alaba scored a cracking goal in El Clásico as Real Madrid eased to a comfortable win away to Barcelona, despite a late consolation goal for the Catalans via Sergio Agüero. Los Blancos now sits a point behind surprise LaLiga leaders Real Sociedad, but with a game in hand.

Eredivisie leaders Ajax, who are also in fine form in the Champions League, dispatched second-placed PSV 5-0 at the Johan Cruijff Arena. A real statement of intent from Erik Ten Hag's men, who have scored 37 goals in 10 league matches this season, conceding just two. 

Roma and Napoli played out a 0-0 draw in the capital, a result which finally ended the visitors' 100% record this season in the top-flight. There weren't many fireworks on the pitch so Jose Mourinho took centre stage when he was sent to the stands. There's now just a solitary point between Roma in 4th and their capital rivals Lazio in 8th. Napoli and Milan share the top spot on 25 points, seven ahead of defending champions Inter.

Inter and Juventus, Italy's two most decorated clubs with 55 Serie A titles between them, played out a 1-1 draw at the San Siro in a much-anticipated Derby d'italia. The Old Lady had Paulo Dybala to thank for his 89th-minute penalty which cancelled out Edin Džeko's 17th-minute opener.

Marseille vs PSG also dubbed as Le Classique promised to be an enjoyable night for the attackers but that's not how things panned out, although 0-0 doesn't tell the whole story of an open affair that had pretty much everything except goals. 

PSG full-back Achraf Hakimi was given his marching orders on 57 minutes but the Parisians held out for what they'll view as a decent point. William Saliba, on-loan from Arsenal, was immense in the heart of OM' defence.
