Liverpool supporters were putting in a strange position of wanting Manchester United to win and aid our pursuit of the Premier League title.
Instead, our fans were left disappointed with a lacklustre performance by Ralf Rangnick’s side and Jamie Redknapp spoke about how Jurgen Klopp and his players would be feeling.
The 48-year-old said: “If I’m putting purely my Liverpool head on now, If I was Jurgen Klopp watching that second half, hoping for something from Man United, ‘Get me a draw’ – you’d be fuming!
“Liverpool players will be looking at it saying, ‘They didn’t even try a leg for us in the second half there’, that was such a disappointing performance”.
The former Red was speaking what a lot of our supporters were thinking, you can never rely on other teams to win a league title for you but the effort from the red side of Manchester in the second-half was appalling.
We will now just have to ensure that we win our own games and hope that it will be enough to topple Pep Guardiola’s side.
