- Manchester United will play in the Europa League next season after their failure to finish in the top four was confirmed on Sunday.
- Manchester United were abject against Huddersfield
Manchester United supporters feel that their side’s dire offering in Sunday’s draw against Huddersfield was made all the more galling by Liverpool’s victory over Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona.
United were outplayed at times in their 1-1 stalemate against the Premier League’s basement club, whose relegation to the Championship was confirmed on March 30, with questions subsequently asked of the desire among members of the Reds’ first-team squad.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to rebuild his side around young, hungry players, with Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi thought to of interest, and United supporters on Twitter felt those values were on show as Liverpool reversed a three-goal deficit to progress to a second Champions League final in as many seasons.
Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum both netted braces to dump Barcelona out of the competition, with the Anfield side’s performance underpinned by a desire that many felt were lacking from the second half of Solskjaer’s tenure at Old Trafford.
United squandered a berth in the top four with a wretched run of eight points from eight league games, and sections of United’s support on Twitter felt the Reds could learn from Liverpool’s showing against the La Liga champions.
