Liverpool made yet another confident statement of their intentions with a 5-0 victory against newly-appointed boss Claudio Ranieri’s Watford.
Later in the day, Manchester United fans were treated to a poor defensive display in their trip to the King Power Stadium with returning centre-back Harry Maguire clearly at fault for two goals – a replay of one of which is available below (courtesy of @triggerKim92).
If this is how Maguire defends and it was Leicester, what do u think Liverpool will do to us…I can't defend my team anymore because we are indefensible playing like this plus this captain is done n its up to the gods now to save us from being humiliated further by the scousers! pic.twitter.com/2D4IoqvcEg

Ahead of the club’s meeting with Liverpool next Sunday, a number of Red Devils fans jumped onto the Twittersphere to express their concerns regarding the England international and a visit from Jurgen Klopp’s in-form forward line.
You can catch some of the fan reaction below:
Maguire and Shaw were absolutely shocking
I don't know how ole is still in the job
But if play similar against Liverpool won't be long..

I have nothing against starting Maguire tbh, I’m just disappointed that the player isn’t fully match fit and haven’t trained properly. I hope this useless gamble goes well for Ole because we have UCL next week and then Liverpool
