Harare Man Accused Of Attempted Murder Over Man U 5 to 0 Loss To Liverpool

A 28-year-old man from Harare is facing attempted murder charges after he allegedly hit another man with a shovel following an argument over results of an English Premier League match between Manchester United and Liverpool. The match was played on Sunday and Liverpool won by 5 goals to nil.

The court heard that around 7pm, Farai Munhenga assaulted Steven Muzikoza with a shovel on the face once and on the hands after Muzikoza had teased him over the football match result. Muzikoza sustained cuts on his face and hands after the assault.

Munhenga is a Manchester United fan while Muzikoza supports Liverpool. Munhenga was then apprehended by witnesses leading to his arrest. Harare magistrate Dennis Mangosi remanded Munhenga in custody to 17 November and advised him to approach the High Court for bail.

Liverpool delivered an annihilation job on Manchester United on Sunday evening, battering the hosts 5-0 at Old Trafford in a game that saw pressure mount further on under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer.
The Norwegian could only watch on dismayed as the Merseyside side carved his Red Devils to shreds, and a hat-trick from Mohamed Salah provided the prime highlight of an incredible game of football, for one side at least.
Jurgen Klopp's side arrived with attacking intent; and they were one up within five minutes, Salah turning provider for Naby Keita to slide beyond a hapless David de Gea.

It would go from bad to worse eight minutes later; a defensive miscommunication between compatriots Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire paved the way for Keita to feed Trent Alexander-Arnold, who found the returning Diogo Jota sliding in at the back stick to double Liverpool's cushion.
Salah notched the first for his own tally on 38 minutes, with Klopp's men slicing the hosts apart: Roberto Firmino, Jota, Keita sliding it across, and the Egyptian beat Victor Lindelof to the cross at the near post for 3-0.
He then doubled his winnings on the stroke of half time; kamikaze United defending from a harmful Liverpool throw, with Lindelof, Maguire and Shaw all sucked in by the ball, and Firmino turned the tight-marking United captain and fed his talismanic right winger, who did the rest. Four.

Cristiano Ronaldo was fortunate not to be sent off for kicking out at substitute Curtis Jones before the break, and United's poor discipline would be a recurring theme later on in the match, with Paul Pogba himself given his marching orders for a dangerous challenge on Keita after a VAR interventio
But that was not before Salah sealed his hat-trick: simply sublime from the golden boy, and Reds captain Jordan Henderson created it, robbing Fred and Pogba in the engine room, bending a beautiful ball into the path of his speedy team-mate, who finished with aplomb.
Supporters booed and jeered, left early, and Solskjaer could only watch on in horror as his Halloween nightmare came early.
For Liverpool, a real stamp of their authority on the title race. United are dead in the water; Liverpool were bubbling, but they've exploded into life off the back of this result.
