Manchester United dropped two points against Swansea City on Sunday, giving Liverpool a huge boost in the race for top four positions in the Premier League.
It’s been a poor week for United who also dropped points against Manchester City mid-week. The result means that they have lost their advantage of games in hand over the Reds, now a point behind having played the same number of games. Liverpool’s destiny is back in their own hands.
The poor result was compounded by injuries to Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly, adding to United’s already significant injury crisis at Old Trafford.
With their schedule not getting any lighter over the next few weeks, it appears Jose Mourinho has it all to do if he is to make this season a good one for United fans.
Liverpool fans were of course overjoyed with the whole situation and took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Get in Swansea!! IF and a big IF #LFC win their next 2 games, they could be 7 pts clear of Utd before they play Arsenal. Big week ahead!

Huge result for us that. That United performance was a good sign too, they looked absolutely hopeless. #lfc

Draw king Jose Mourinho. Both him and Pep has failed this season. Klopp doesnt get much credit he has done very well at Liverpool. #LFC

United's last 4 games are Arsenal away, Spurs away, Saints away & Palace home. We CANNOT let them finish above us with those games left #LFC
