It’s not easy. For sure, for sure, we’re going to finish in the top six like historically all the top teams  “We can get the fourth position. Now we have to look to the fifth, and probably later the fourth ”Woodward anger Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was pictured looking angry during the defeat  With the score at 3-1, Woodward was pictured covering his mouth speaking to United legend Bobby Charlton at Anfield  He appeared to throw his hands up in disgust, clearly angered by something or more likely the disappointing performance as a whole Souness slams Shaqiri Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness gave Xherdan Shaqiri some stick despite the Swiss star proving to be the match-winner  The summer signing entered the fray on 70 minutes and scored twice to seal a 3-1 win  But Souness still wasn’t full of praise for the 27-year-old. “He’s only any good, with all due respect to him, if you’re dominating, are on the front foot and have the ball,” the former Liverpool midfielder said  After the quick jibe Souness went on to praise the Swiss. “The boy has got an eye for a pass and he’s a wonderful striker of the ball so he’s taylor made for this Liverpool team,” he said  “They beat up teams when they have the ball, they put them under pressure so when you’re chasing something he’s the perfect sub to have “Keane feared defeat Roy Keane is renowned for his hard-hitting opinions and the former United captain revealed that he saw the defeat coming on Merseyside  “They just dominated everything,” Keane said of Liverpool. “Corners, possession, shots, goals And I’m not surprised, I did fear the worst today.

And now Paul Pogba’s not going to get on the pitch  “You’ve spent £700 million on this team and squad and you’re thinking where is it, where’s it gone?”Carragher’s Neville jibe with Shaqiri Jamie Carragher rubbed salt in the wounds of Gary Neville who was coming to terms with the defeat  The former Liverpool defender mocked his Sky Sports colleague when presenting Shaqiri with the Man of the Match award  Neville publicly slammed Shaqiri during his Stoke days, labelling him ‘unprofessional ’ “You made a big impact and we’re going to pass you this, the man of the match award there, I nearly dropped it,” Carragher said  “Gary Neville was going to give it to you but he didn’t want to come down and face you ” The lighthearted gag had the Swiss winger chuckling as he claimed the award.
