Solksjaer’s men have been below par for most of the second half of his tenure and drawing against a team which got relegated more than a month ago in a game that is extremely crucial is simply a crime that is unforgivable.
However, The 45-year-old is said is still said to have the complete backing of the board and wants to rebuild his United squad around hungry players like Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi and the Mancunian faithful believe that Liverpool exemplified those sentiments last night.

Liverpool displayed unsatiable hunger and an undying desire to make it to the Champions League finals the second year in a row, A trait many United fans want to see in their side after recent performances.
Here’s what the Red Devils haad to say:
Seeing Liverpool play with this aggressiveness makes me sick with #MUFC

Sat watching this game having a bite to eat and I've noticed how both sets of these players run their asses off for the cause! It'd be nice if our players ran half as much as these!! #MUFC #ChampionsLeague

One United supporter also went on to highlight how poor his side’s performance must have been to lose to such an underperforming Barcelona a few weeks back
I can't believe Manchester United lost to this team two weeks ago. Just shows how poor our form has been this season #mufc

Though it makes to sick to my stomach to say this but Liverpool deserved the win and as Sir Alex Ferguson would say, “Football, Bloody hell!”
