Liverpool beat Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield to give them a huge advantage going into the Europa League last 16.

Daniel Sturridge’s penalty put the Reds ahead, before David De Gea put in a superb performance to keep the deficit down to one goal.

However, poor defending from Michael Carrick allowed Roberto Firmino to score a second and the internet responded in typically brutal style.

Here’s the best of the reaction:

Despite it being the Europa League, the atmosphere before the match was electric:

Although this guy is still getting used to the rebranding:

Marcus Rashford started again, but had limited time to do anything:

But it was another striker who grabbed the headlines:

That caused a reaction from everyone’s favourite footballing philosopher:

Sturridge couldn’t add to his tally though, as David De Gea went into top gear to deny him and Coutinho. Either way, this was ridiculous:

This guy then came up with the fact of the night:

Before United’s pessimists were rightly out in force:

They still had a plan though:

But this guy was brought on, and Louis van Gaal knew he was knackered:

Allen’s introduction coincided with Firmino’s winner, and Scousers went into full ‘piss take mode’:

And Man Utd fans turned on van Gaal again:

We would say this guy’s got a bit carried away, but he could have a point:

This guy summed it up beautifully though:

Never mind Man United fans, maybe Gary Neville will save you.
