The Red Devils suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat in a home game against their biggest rivals. According to records, this was the club’s worst loss against the Merseyside squad since 1925. Manchester United is now ranked eighth and lag eight points behind leaders of the table Chelsea.
Manchester United fans trashed the club’s captain, Harry Maguire, for what they described as an “embarrassing” apology after Sunday’s devastating loss to Liverpool. Speaking to Sky Sports, the 28-year-old apologised to the club’s supporters on behalf of the whole team before saying that he is talking to the press because he “has to be here”.

The remark caused an avalanche of negative comment on social media as users vented their fury at the player:


Many netizens seemed astounded and couldn’t believe the defender made such a remark:


Others criticised Maguire’s leadership skills:


And many users demanded Maguire be stripped of his captain's status:

Whereas others took a dig at the athlete drawing attention to the fact he is one of the Premier League's most expensive defenders:



However, there were certain more charitable souls who felt that the players should not be blamed for the humiliating defenestration:

There have been growing calls to sack the club’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been at the helm of the club since 2018. The Red Devils conceded four goals in 45 minutes with pundits noting that there was no organisation in the team. Former Chelsea and Norwich striker, Chris Sutton, said he believes Solskjaer needs to leave.

The Norwegian himself admitted that the loss to Liverpool was his “darkest day” during his tenure at Old Trafford, but he also emphasised that he has "come too far to give up".

"The feeling we have had is we were getting where we wanted to be, but in the past few weeks results haven't come and we have hit a brick wall. We have conceded too many easy goals and that is a worry. I do believe in myself, I do believe I am getting close to what I want with the club,” Solskjaer said.
