However, another was quick to point out that there’s always someone worse off than you.

United’s squad depth was brought into question after they were forced to turn to a youngster for inspiration.
Manchester United need a goal. So they bring on youth prospect Jesse Lingard. Says it all. #MUNBUR

It wasn’t just Lingard who came under the microscope, Anthony Martial’s pre-match preperations were discussed.

United lost by the same scoreline against Liverpool on Sunday and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was mocked after the game for claiming that it showed progress. They were words that would come back to haunt him.

This Twitter user had the same idea.
“You know when you are 2 goals down but don’t concede a third shows how far we’ve come” #MUNBUR pic.twitter.com/gOsXXxdHZv

It wasn’t just Solskjaer’s previous comments that were dug up again, one former player’s post match reaction resurfaced.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom for United though, who have managed to escape one bonus payment by the skin of their teeths.
Just a reminder that Manchester United agreed to fork out an additional £7.2million for Monaco if Martial won the Ballon d’Or by June 2019. #MUNBUR

And, finally, one Twitter user couldn’t focus on the events at old Trafford. They were still hung up on the events of the night before.
Forget about #MUNBUR, forget #OleOut , forget Ronaldo …
