The score was 2-0 short, after the goal against Eric Bailly and a goal-line preview from Bernardo Silva. The power that Old Trafford gave its players has not only waned: today it has translated directly into whistles. Cristiano Ronaldo? He had a poor game and got out of hand and got reprimanded.
Manchester United couldn’t cope with the constant drag of their classic opponent’s passes In any segment of the meeting. With a defenseless attitude and little reaction, the central duo in Red Devils He ended up advancing his own proclaimed goal with sheer intensity and Citizen Progress. Then the second happened behind Luke Shu’s back, careless from start to finish.
The complement did not start that from the stands began to descend intensively “Buuuu”The unspoken roar of English indignation. It was addressed to all players and coach, Ole Solksgaer, who was lauded minutes ago despite Liverpool’s 5-0 setback in October and the downturn in the yield curve.

Because the Portuguese hasn’t spent the afternoon in his first home derby in eleven years (the last was in 2009).
