Fans online have ripped into Manchester United after their humiliating 7-0 defeat against rivals Liverpool on Sunday night.
The Red Devils were swept aside in convincing fashion by Jurgen Klopp’s hosts as Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all scored on the night.
The shock result, which has now put a dent into United’s push for a Champions League spot, saw plenty of hilarious memes being shared online after the game.
One fan went to social media and posted a picture of the popular energy drink ‘7Up’, with the caption: ‘A bottle of 7up for all Manchester United fans’.
Meanwhile, a well-known account named ‘UberFacts’ asked their followers: ‘What popular myth do you wish people would stop believing?’, to which one fan replied: ‘Man United are back and in a title challenge’.

Fans online were quick to poke fun at United after the humiliating result at Anfield on Sunday
Another user wrote: ‘Over to Len Goodman at Anfield!’ and shared an image of the Strictly Come Dancing judge holding up a ‘7’ score.
Some supporters on Twitter used their time to lambast United’s performance, with one asking: ‘Man United were suppose to be title contenders?’
Another added: ‘Man United back in your box. Has anyone seen Rashford? Casemiro? The little butcher? Gary Neville?’
Even Graham Souness after the match joked: ‘Can we not wait for Gary [Neville] to come back?’
The huge 7-0 defeat set a new record for the club and became their worst result since a loss on Boxing Day in 1931.
Gakpo was the star of the show, with Carragher lauding the Dutchman for his excellent ‘composure’ striking home two stunning finishes.
The 24-year-old had snubbed Erik ten Hag’s side for the Merseyside club last December.
Darwin Nunez had also turned his back on a move to Man United last season and fans were also quick to point out that he was the orchestrator of Liverpool’s win.
One wrote: ‘There’s just something so poetic about both Gakpo and Nunez scoring a brace against man united after rejecting them.’

While the loss is only their second this year, it will be a devastating sting to Manchester United’s momentum.
It will be the end to their incredible 11-match unbeaten run across all competitions, which includes their excellent performances against Barcelona and their Carabao Cup win against Newcastle.
Yet, the result keeps united nine points adrift of Manchester City who sit in second place in the Premier League table.
