Manchester United's three worst players against Liverpool

Manchester United’s Champions League hopes took a massive dent as Liverpool dismantled Ralf Rangnick’s side 4-0 at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side strolled to a 4-0 win against their fierce rivals and leapfrogged Manchester City to go top of the table.

In contrast, Manchester United are in crisis mode and the end of the season cannot come soon enough.

Here were United’s three worst players on Merseyside…

United’s right wing-back looked absolutely petrified to go forwards and was a rabbit in the headlights every time he had the ball at his feet.

The former Crystal Palace man treats the football like a hot potato and when you’re heading into the lions den, United need all of their players to be courageous in and out of possession.

Wan-Bissaka’s regression has been clear to see this season and it says a lot that it would probably be a surprise to see our number 29 start next season as our number one right-back.

If a new right-back was signed this summer it would probably make sense see Wan-Bissaka go out on loan and try and find some confidence in a different environment.

Manchester United need leaders and it’s glaringly obvious that there was nobody willing or able to rally the troops when the side was in the trenches in one of the most intimidating stadiums to play in.

Unfortunately for Maguire, when he’s the club’s captain, he’s going to be one of the first in the firing line.

But the England international did little to silence the critics and the scrutiny surrounding his own future at Manchester United will likely intensify in the coming months.

Manchester United aren’t going to climb the top of the football mountain with Maguire at the heart of our defence, it’s plain and simple.

The World Cup winner hobbling off after 10 minutes could potentially be the last Manchester United fans see of the Frenchman.

United’s number six moved quicker coming off the pitch then he did in the opening nine minutes. It’s clear that Pogba’s heart isn’t with Manchester United anymore.

In a game where United needed every single man to stand up to the fight and produce one of the performances of their lives, Pogba made it abundantly clear where his allegiances lay.

If Pogba is fit enough to feature again this season, Ralf Rangnick should be prioritising giving youngsters like Hannibal Mejbri over the 29-year-old.
