Manchester United fans have been mercilessly trolling Liverpool and their manager Jurgen Klopp after knocking them out of the FA Cup at Old Trafford this evening.
United notched a 3-2 win, courtesy of goals from Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, with two Mo Salah goals not enough to rescue the Merseysiders from defeat.
The Peoples Person is a serious news outlet but after the Red Devils climbed six points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, grabbed a point at Anfield and won today, the reporting of a little light-hearted fun and banter is probably in order.
The first tweet relates to Liverpool’s Andy Robertson, who could only try to distract Mason Greenwood by shouting when he went clear through on goal against him for United’s first.

Many fans also found it funny that Klopp had been complaining that Bruno Fernandes is given too many penalties and yet this evening, he scored from a free kick instead:

So Bruno Fernandes decided to score a free-kick against Liverpool! 😂 pic.twitter.com/Vw272Eusvy

Despite Liverpool’s success under the German, some fans – even ESPN – were keen to point out that they still have not won at Old Trafford.

It was a hard fought affair and some of the tackles coming in from Liverpool that went unpunished were shocking, something that Klopp tends to make a fuss of when it happens to his players:

What will Klopp blame today? Man United tactics? The referee? VAR? The weather? Lack of fans? Schooled by Ole. On we go, well fought win. #MUFC
