Liverpool fans react as arch-enemies Manchester United fail to help them in title race

There would have been many Liverpool fans dogged with conflicting emotions on Sunday afternoon as they awaited the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Manchester United.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are genuine challengers for the title this season, but reigning champions City are their biggest competitors for the crown.

Due to the intense rivalry between Liverpool and United, neither set of fans are likely to root for the other during a match.

However, there were some supporters on Merseyside who were willing the Red Devils to get a result at the Etihad Stadium.

Had they done so, Liverpool would remain at the top of the standings following their earlier 2-0 win over Fulham.

However, Pep Guardiola’s City side ended up claiming a 3-1 victory, with David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan getting on the scoresheet.

United could have potentially got themselves back into contention after Anthony Martial made it 2-1 with a 58-minuth penalty, but the goal failed to inspire a comeback.

On Twitter, some Liverpool fans chose to mock the fact that United sit 10 points adrift of them in the table, while others admitted frustration in the result.
