“Such a frustrating game”, “Ref was awful” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat to Man United

Liverpool fall behind their closest rivals following a 2-1 defeat to Man United at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.

Man United 2-1 Liverpool

Premier League, Old Trafford
March 10, 2018

Goals: Rashford 14′, 24′; Bailly OG 66′

Jurgen Klopp made five changes from the side which drew 0-0 with Porto while Jose Mourinho handed a first league start since Boxing Day to Marcus Rashford.

The United youngster repaid his manager’s selection by scoring early in the first half to put Liverpool under pressure.

He then doubled United’s lead 10 minutes later when another long ball caught out Dejan Lovren and the Reds’ defence.

After a poor first half from the visitors, Liverpool came out searching for a goal and got one when Eric Bailly’s lucky deflection beat David de Gea at his near post for an own goal.

They pushed on for an equaliser but couldn’t break down a solid United defence—as Mourinho’s men slowed the game down in the dying stages.

Here are some of the best reactions from Liverpool supporters on social media as United went on to win 2-1.


Fans weren’t happy after Rashford’s second goal and there was plenty of criticism for Lovren…




And in the second half supporters felt they should have had a penalty after two appeals…



Despite efforts to fight back, supporters were frustrated at full-time…
