Man United seriously got away with one this weekend. The Red Devils hosted Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday and were incredibly fortunate to leave the field with a point. United took the lead in the game thanks to a goal from Marcus Rashford that should have been ruled out due to a blatant foul on Divock Origi in the build up. Martin Atkinson didn’t give the foul in real time and VAR didn’t deem it to be a clear and obvious error that the referee seemingly missed Victor Lindelof kicking the Liverpool player in the calf. In the wake of the game, a tweet by Harry Maguire has shown how far ahead Liverpool are of their North West rivals.

Maguire became the most expensive defender in history when Man United paid Leicester City £80m for his services over the summer. The ex-Leicester City centre back has played in all nine of his club’s Premier League games this season. Despite paying a world record fee for a defender, Man United currently find themselves 13th in the league table, just two points clear of relegation.

 

The above tweet by Harry Maguire confirms how far ahead Liverpool are of Man United now. The most expensive defender in the world is celebrating scraping a point at home, having been ahead in the game until the 84th minute. If you aren’t disappointed, you are celebrating. Utterly embarrassing. What would Sir Alex Ferguson think? There was a time when Man United were winning the Premier League year in year out, often giving Liverpool a hiding when we ventured up to Old Trafford. Nowadays, their record signings are over the moon with dropping 2 points in the final 10 minutes when we come knocking. Liverpool are ahead of United by a distance that would have been unimaginable before Jürgen Klopp arrived at the club.
