Twitter Reacts To A Dire 'Red Monday'

Harris Simpson by Harris Simpson / 18 October 2016, 11:50

Billed as ‘Red Monday’, last night was expected to be a Premier League classic, instead fans were subjected to a truly drab affair, with both sides managing just 3 shots on target between them. Many had expected an in-form Liverpool to waltz to victory, however, as he has done so often in the past, Jose Mourinho managed to nullify the home sides attacking threat, as his side put in a hard working disciplined performance.

Liverpool started the game badly, but finished strongly in the second half, and but for two tremendous David De Gea saves, might have stolen the victory. United will themselves feel victory was within their grasp, and had Ibrahimovic dispatched a second half header, they very well might have left Anfield with all 3 points.

Many complained about the lack of attacking input, and were left thoroughly disappointed after the game had been given so much build up. The game certainly wont be remembered as a classic, but at least from a tactical point of view it had its moments.

As it was, both sides largely cancelled the other out, but due to the subdued nature of the match, Twitter was again full of opinion, as many users regretted watching the match at all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic particularly came in for heavy criticism, as both players struggled to have an impact on the match. Pogba was often wasteful in possession, while Zlatan was also guilty of gifting the ball to the opposition

 

 

 

 

If the match is remembered for anything, it will be for two stunning David De Gea saves, which the majority of goal keepers would have got no where close to saving.

 

 

 

 

One player who will come out of the game with immense credit is Spaniard, Ander Herrera. Herrera covered every blade of grass, and was vital in helping tame Liverpool’s talented attack.
