“Performance is a real worry”, “And yet… top of the league” – Liverpool fans react to stalemate with Man United

Liverpool limped to a forgettable goalless draw at Man United on Sunday, in a performance severely lacking in attacking quality.

Man United 0-0 Liverpool

Premier League, Old Trafford
February 24, 2019

The Reds took on their biggest adversaries at Old Trafford, looking to go three points clear of Man City at the top of the Premier League.

A horribly disjointed first-half saw countless injuries take place, with Roberto Firmino, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard all leaving the field.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side struggled to find their rhythm throughout, failing to create a single chance of genuine note.

It was a disappointing result in many ways, especially given United’s injuries, but Liverpool are still top of the table with 11 games left to play.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


James Milner, drafted in at right-back, had an afternoon to forget…



“Hopefully, this is the last time im watching milner playing as RB” – Basha Usop on Facebook.

“Milner had a shocker” – Steven Alonso on the forums.


Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were also bitterly disappointing…

“Salah was shocking” – Karthik Valvekar on Facebook.

“Salah and Mane were poor today, but they have plenty of credit in the bank” – macca1970 on the forums.



The overall display was widely lambasted…

“We won’t win the league if we keep playing this horribly.” – Phumelela Phim Sigenu on Facebook.


Many felt it was a huge chance missed…

“What a chance to go 3 points clear” – Richard I. Yanev on Facebook.


Others were in more optimistic mood, with destiny still in Liverpool’s hands…

“Such a bad game, only positive is we didn’t lose” – Waldaz on the forums.

“A point and clean sheet at Old Trafford. A lot of us would’ve taken that before the game.” – SirBillShankly on the forums.
