Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham fans may complain that they're playing better than United recently. Should there be a bigger game in the top flight?
The history between Manchester United and Liverpool is most passionately followed in South Africa.
We have a look at how the South African media reacted to the game on Twitter, after Liverpool beat United 3-1 at Anfield on Sunday.
All this talk about Klopp and trophies is meant to unsettle Liverpool. Anyone with a brain knows trophies are handed out toward the end of the season. That's when u can criticize. Doing it mid-season creates fear of failure, the last thing any winning team needs to think of @lfc — Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) December 16, 2018

Jurgen Klopp this month:— Smangaliso Mdluli (@SimangalisoMdl2) December 16, 2018
Brings on Origi against Everton, scores 300 seconds later.
Brings on Firmino against Burnley, scores 300 seconds later.
Brings on Shaqiri against Man United, scores 300 seconds later.
As for Manchester United's problems. There are so many I can't fit them in a Tweet, but here's 1 point: Look at how Jurgen Klopp hugged his players after the game (as usual) regulars or not, Jose Mourinho obviously doesn't come anywhere near in breathing squad confidence #MUFC — Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) December 17, 2018
This is quality from Klopp. Generally, a manager that speaks with a lot of football detail. Simple yet extremely educational. Top https://t.co/GFK0BklZV3 — Rulani Mokwena (@coach_rulani) December 17, 2018
