Well, they do have a point to be fair

League One club Shrewsbury Town brutally mocked Manchester United on Twitter after the Red Devils suffered a 4-0 defeat against Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s men ran riot at Anfield on Tuesday night, with Mohamed Salah grabbing a brace and Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz both getting on the scoresheet.

Early in the game, United supporter ‘KD’ posted a tweet saying: “We are looking like @shrewsweb at Anfield,” followed by a worried emoji.

However, after Ralf Rangnick’s side went on to lose 4-0, the Shrews – who lost 4-1 in the FA Cup at Anfield earlier this season – fired back with a comical response.

They tweeted: “We scored at Anfield this season. You didn’t. Levels.”

The Red Devils’ defeat, which came after a 5-0 thrashing in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford in October, means United lost their two Premier League games against Liverpool by an aggregate score of 9-0.

When the Reds faced-off against the League One side in the third round of the FA cup, Salop striker Daniel Udoh stunned Anfield and opened the scoring in the 27th minute.

But Klopp’s side responded well and drew level courtesy of 17-year-old Kaide Gordon – who became their youngest ever FA Cup scorer.

Fabinho then converted a penalty given for handball just before half-time, before Roberto Firmino scored a smart backheel in the 78th minute and Fabinho grabbed his second of the match in added time.

Despite this, the game was more competitive than the scoreline suggested, unlike United’s visit on Tuesday, where the away side had just 28 per cent of possession.

United’s next Premier League match sees them travel to London to face-off against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal side. The two teams are currently level on points, but the Gunners have played two less games than the Red Devils.
