Manchester United have endured a troubling start to the season and are currently on a poor run of form, winning none out of their last four games in the Premier League.
The latest defeat at home to Liverpool, a five-goal thumping, was particularly embarrassing as United’s bitter rivals left Old Trafford with a comprehensive and deserved victory.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were taken apart by Liverpool, who completely humiliated United despite never going past third gear in the 90-minute affair.

After conceding five goals to Liverpool, United have now conceded 15 goals in their first nine games of the season – a statistic Harry Maguire says they haven’t been looking at too much, as seen above.
Maguire’s comments will be worrying to large sections of the Manchester United support, with their defensive record worsening with each passing week.
