After the defeat, the Maguire captain apologized to United fans and quoted him “I’m here because I have to be here” invoking his duties to talk to the media.
These comments did not go well with some United fans who suggested that the captain of such a proud football institute should take responsibility for their poor game against Liverpool.
Manchester United fans took to Twitter to express their disapproval of Harry Maguire’s comments, and many suggested that he was incapable of leading the Red Devils. Here are some of the best tweets:
The defeat by Liverpool on Sunday was one of Manchester United’s worst appearances in Premier League history. The Red Devils were never in the game right after Naby Keita’s goal in the fifth minute.
Liverpool have since scored four more goals, winning the match in a comprehensive manner thanks to a hat-trick by Mohamed Salah.
The 29-year-old winger is in the shape of his life, which has led Liverpool to put more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s shoulders. Many fans expect the club to fire the Norwegian in the near future.
Nothing gets easier for United and Solskjaer. The Red Devils should play against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City in the next two Premier League matches.
Manchester United left rivals for the title after losing to Liverpool
Prior to the start of the Premier League season, United were considered one of the favorites for the title following the summer acquisitions of Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho. However, the Red Devils are now lagging behind the alleged rivals by a big margin.
The defeat by Liverpool was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second consecutive defeat in the Premier League in a four-game winless streak. Manchester United have lost to Aston Villa and Leicester City in this futile streak.
Manchester United is now seventh in the Premier League table, with 14 points from the first nine matches. The Red Devils stand behind West Ham United, Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester United are now eight points behind league leader Chelsea and seven points behind Liverpool.
