One still image highlights everything everything wrong with Man United under Solskjaer amid Liverpool drubbing

 

A still image highlighted amid Manchester United’s embarrassing display against Liverpool has piqued widespread attentions online this evening.

Reds run riot

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are of course currently locked in action in the marquee fixture of the Premier League weekend.

After recovering from two goals down to get the better of Atalanta in the Champions League in midweek, the Red Devils welcomed arch rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford, aiming to make it two wins from two across all competitions.

With a little over 45 minutes played in Manchester, however, to say that such an outcome looks unlikely would be something of an understatement.

Incredibly, owing to an explosive first-half display, Liverpool currently lead their hosts by no fewer than four goals.

Mohamed Salah has proven the undoubted star of the show, notching a brace to continue his scintillating spell of individual form, whilst Naby Keita and Diogo Jota have managed to find the net, too:

An image says a thousand words

In turn, amid what could yet prove to be one of the darkest days in Manchester United’s recent history, it should come as little surprise to hear that the pile-on has already gotten well underway across social media.

The Red Devils have been targeted by rival supporters and their own fanbase alike, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having inevitably come in for the brunt of the criticism.

And the frankly laughable defensive setup on the part of the hosts has since given rise to a viral image across social media.

With the score at 1-0 at Old Trafford, Mohamed Salah surged through towards goal.

Bizarrely, though, with Naby Keita and Andy Robertson either side of him, Liverpool’s star man was left with just one defender to beat.

An image can sometimes say a thousand words, and if Solskjaer’s reign in Manchester could be summed up by one, it would be hard to argue that the following isn’t it…

*Update* – Mo Salah has since bagged his hat-trick to make it 5-0.
