Liverpool fans have been left baffled by some comments from former midfielder Danny Murphy, who picked two Manchester United players he believes Jurgen Klopp would take at Anfield.
In case you’ve been living under a rock since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, Liverpool are good and Manchester United are bad now.
The Reds have started the new Premier League campaign in electric form, taking 21 points from seven games, following on from a season in which they suffered just one league defeat.
The Red Devils meanwhile have been resigned to Thursday night football in Europe’s second-rate competition, and before the clash against Arsenal on Monday night they sit just three points away from the relegation zone, but a whopping 13 points from the top of the table.
Murphy though, believes Klopp would take Marcus Rashford and Daniel James on Merseyside, writing in his column for The Daily Mail: “United need more quality to catch up to their rivals but that doesn’t mean they don’t have any at the club.
“I think Jurgen Klopp would take Marcus Rashford and Daniel James all day long, they would fit in with his philosophy very well.”
Unsurprisingly, the Anfield faithful don’t agree with their former player on this one, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

That’s why Murphy is a hopeless tv pundit and not a manager. We had enough non scoring forwards Borini Lambert Ballotelli. Rashford will never score 20 goals ever not brave enough.

Murphy truly is a plonker.. If Harry Wilson can’t get near the side, how would James?
