Liverpool romped to a comfortable 2-0 first-leg win away to Europa League last-16 opponents on Thursday night, in front of a defiant Anfield crowd.
Liverpool 2-0 Man United
Europa League – Anfield – Thursday 10th March 2016
Goals: Sturridge 20′ (pen), Firmino 73′
The heroics of David De Gea kept United in the contest, with the Spaniard making a number of vital saves to deny the likes of Sturridge and Adam Lallana.
But with Anfield in full voice in this first European meeting between the two clubs, Liverpool will be delighted to have secured such a controlling lead.
Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 2-0 win at home to United.
Most focussed on the Reds’ dominance over their bitter rivals, with United lacking any structure throughout…
“Deserved win – bossed them from the kickoff to the final whistle, and if it wasn’t for the fact that they have one of the best keepers on the planet (or our finishing was better) it should have been four.”
– ubermick on the forums.
“Dominant performance. Should have been 4 or 5. They are blessed to have such a good keeper. Otherwise United were an embarrassment on and off the pitch.”
– Herb on the forums.
With some pointing to the signs of Jurgen Klopp‘s vision slowly being realised…
“Fantastic win. We made it look easy. Well done our lads. Klopptastic performance.
– theres always tommorrow on the forums.
Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne were singled out for their strong performances…
And much of the focus turned to the support of the Anfield crowd…
While many simply lapped up the ecstasy of a 2-0 win at home to United in Europe—a fantastic result for the Reds…
“The best win this season…I couldn’t be happier!”
– gb1986 on the forums.
“Glorious victory, well done Liverpool FC.”
