Manchester United was battered by their bitter rivals Liverpool football club at Anfield Stadium despite their impressive form under Erik Ten Hag. The Red Devils received a 7-0 thrashing just a week after winning the Carabao Cup trophy after beating Newcastle United 2-0. Casemiro and Rashford were the stars of the game as they ended their six-year trophy drought. The Red Devils also advanced to the FA Cup quarter-finals after coming from behind to beat West Ham United 3-1 at Old Trafford.
Just a few days after the game, they traveled to Merseyside where they got humiliated by Jurgen Klopp’s men. As it stands, Manchester United is 13 points behind Arsenal having played 25 games compared to Arsenal’s 26. Liverpool on the other hand is seven points below the Red Devils while Tottenham Hotspur is just three points below.
During the game, not more than a few Manchester United fans wouldn’t agree with me that Diogo Dalot was very poor throughout the showdown. Wan Bissaka would have been the best to keep Cody Gakpo, who disgraced Dalot out of the United’s eighteen-yard box. Alongside Dalot is Antony who was very poor throughout the game.
The Brazilian international keeps showboating even when the team is losing. He couldn’t get anything right as Mohamed Salah destroys the Red Devils’ defenders on the other side. Erik Ten Hag needs to bench both players if he wants to win Real Betis.
