‘Sickening’ ‘Incredibly annoying’ – Liverpool fans all say the same thing as Man City lose Manchester derby

Posted by

Times have changed for Liverpool this term and at a pace that seemingly defies all logic after the highs of the 2021/22 campaign in which the Reds came close to a historic quadruple.

Set to pay a visit to the Amex, this time not as the favourites, Jurgen Klopp’s men are in desperate need of three points to begin clawing their way back into the top four.

Ahead of the tie in the South Coast, however, another spectacle was capturing the attentions of a number of the fanbase: the Manchester derby.

With Marcus Rashford’s second-half goal enough to ensure Erik ten Hag’s outfit got a statement win at Old Trafford, several supporters took to social media to vent their frustrations.

Whilst it’s perhaps reassuring in a sense that the Sky Blues aren’t running away with the top-flight once again, fans have every right to feel frustrated with the near-symbiotic nature of our relationship with the league holders.

During the Pep Guardiola era, it has seemed to be the case that the quality of our performances has a direct impact on our rival’s level of competitiveness.

Hypothetically, were Arsenal to secure the league on less than 90 points, it would tear open several old wounds for Liverpool in terms of our near misses in the Premier League.
