Alexander-Arnold apologises to Liverpool fans following Man United defeat
Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has taken time to apologise to the club’s supporters due to their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.
The 19-year-old found himself in a difficult situation in front of United attacker Marcus Rashford who scored a brace.
Therefore, Alexander-Arnold took to Instagram to say sorry for his side’s performance at Old Trafford.
The youngster posted a picture along with a caption on his Instagram: “I just want to apologise to all the fans! The support today was amazing and our performance was not good enough to get the result we wanted. We will learn from this and come back stronger.”
Mourinho doesn’t care if people think Manchester United did not deserve the win
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that he doesn’t care if there are people who think his side did not deserve a win against Liverpool.
United beat Merseysiders 2-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, with youngster Marcus Rashford scored twice; while defender Eric Bailly helped Liverpool to find the deficit scoring against his side in the second half.
Jurgen Klopp’s men dominated the games collecting 13 corners and 68% of possession but were not able to score against their arch-rivals.
“We can split the halves, United first half and Liverpool second, but in my opinion, our first half was a half with goals and danger,” Mourinho told Sky Sports News.
“In the second half – in my opinion, and probably the people in the studio have a different opinion – was Liverpool controlling with the ball and United controlling without the ball. Our team was always in control. Even in set pieces, corners, dangerous situations we were in control so I think we deserved it.”
“Against Liverpool, if you play bad when you have the ball you can be in trouble. In the second half, it was not our intention – I cannot say this was the plan. Liverpool pushed us into a defensive situation but we kept control. It was a complete performance by us with two different halves.”
“If people don’t think we deserved it, I don’t care. I am a bit tired, we have a match on Tuesday. I don’t care what people say. The boys are happy, I’m happy.”
