Andy Cole sums up how Manchester United fans are feeling after Liverpool defeat
Manchester United fans knew it was going to be tough up against Liverpool at Anfield. But experiencing it was another matter.
Losing 4-0 to them is always painful. United have now lost 9-0 combined to Liverpool this season.
Former United striker Andy Cole summed up how it felt with a short, succinct tweet after the defeat.
Roy Keane told Sky Sports that United ‘did not look like a Manchester United team’, a damning indictment of what it is like to watch them play.
Rio Ferdinand had seen enough, making clear via his Twitter account he did not want to listen to the post-match jibes.
United lacked intensity, and had to rely on late substitute Hannibal to provide some. Neville said he was ‘proud’ of the teenager.
United have to try and move on, but it is easier said than done. This was a chance to damage Liverpool’s title charge, and we never even came close.
Focusing on ourselves, it was a chance to put pressure on in the race for the top four. To be quite honest though, United do not deserve a Champions League place.
Defeat to Arsenal this coming weekend would probably end those faint hopes once and for all, although with the Gunners losing three games in a row and taking on Chelsea in midweek, they will not like their chances either.
What really needs to hurry up is the end of this current season. The quicker it is all over with, the better.
