A selection of Liverpool fans reacted on social media as Manchester United suffered a 2-1 Premier League defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday night.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made 10 changes as the match was played just 48 hours after the club’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa.

As a result, United struggled to get a stranglehold on the game, managing just one shot on target, which led to Mason Greenwood’s equaliser.

The defeat at Old Trafford handed Manchester City a third league title in four seasons while boosting the Foxes’ Champions League prospects.

Leicester started the game with a six-point lead over Liverpool but have now managed to extend the gap further.

The Reds are now seven points behind Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, who occupy the final Champions League spot in fourth.

The Blues are favourites to beat Arsenal tonight, and a victory could put the Reds on the cusp of missing out on Champions League football.

Despite this, some of the Reds fans on Twitter refused to criticise United’s team selection and performance by stating that the club have themselves to blame.

Twitter reactions:

The Reds are still in with a shout to make the top four but need plenty of results to go their way to play Champions League football next term.

The club must win their remaining four games, and hope that Chelsea or Leicester fail to cross the 69-point mark, which is the maximum they can manage.

They have a testing challenge against arch-rivals United on Thursday. Solskjaer is likely to pick his strongest XI after making wholesale changes last night.
