Klopp feels ‘a bit’ for Man Utd after Liverpool inflict four-goal humiliation

Jurgen Klopp admits he feels “a bit” for Manchester United after Liverpool routed them for the second time in the Premier League this season.

A Mohamed Salah double and goals for Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane helped the Reds to a 4-0 win against a lacklustre Red Devils side.

Ralf Rangnick’s visitors were without Cristiano Ronaldo for personal reasons and lost Paul Pogba to injury early on.

It marks the latest dire result under the interim manager as United limp towards the end of a crushingly disappointing campaign, and Klopp unexpectedly admits he sympathises with their struggle.

Klopp told BBC’s Match of the Day:

“I feel a bit for them.

“It doesn’t happen often, and I don’t think it will happen often. It is not a normal situation.

“They are not in a good moment and have a lot of injuries on top. When Pogba left the pitch, they played without their usual midfield.

“The pitch can become big with many offensive players on it. Centre midfield with [Nemanja] Matic and [Bruno] Fernandes is not how you want to play.

“Nothing against the players. It is just not their natural game. We had 70-75 per cent of the ball, and they have to defend, which is not easy.”

Elsewhere, Klopp was happy to lavish praise upon Thiago, with the Spain international becoming a masterful mainstay of the manager’s side.

“He is a good player,” Klopp added. “We have to keep him fit. He has a good rhythm, which helps. He is in the suitable spaces, the little turns and passes.

“We don’t have five million players like this on the planet. Only a few see things earlier than everyone else and have the technical ability to get the ball there.

“[It was] a top game from him. Everybody was outstanding, and that is what you need to win against Man Utd.”
