Liverpool Beat Man United, Even De Gea Can’t Save Internet Laughing
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:
De Gea’s performance meant Man United owed a lot to some failed technology in Madrid:
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.
