If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can survive this, he can survive anything according to the English press.

While Gary Neville says he never thought “it would get as bad as that” as Manchester United were obliterated, pulled to pieces, dismantled” by Liverpool at home 5-0.

The defeat shined the best on Mohamed Salah and worst on United defence.

“It is not easy to say something apart from it is the darkest day I have had leading these players,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “We were not good enough individually and as a team. “The whole performance was not good enough.

Here is the best reaction across the world following the theatre of screams.

‘RECKLESS’: United stars lose their minds amid HUGE Ronaldo controversy

Former United defender Gary Neville laid into his old club’s tactics and lack of effort against their biggest rivals.

“I didn’t think it would ever get as bad as that … that was an absolute shocker and the timing couldn’t have been worse,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s been building now for a few weeks against what I’d call half-decent teams, but as soon as they played a proper team they’ve been obliterated, pulled to pieces, dismantled.

“I didn’t think they’d play like that today because I thought they’d flip a switch. But you can’t flip a switch in football.

“That group of players, they get outrun – they’re one of the lowest running teams in the league – and there’s nothing worse than being told you’re one of the lowest running teams in the league and the easiest to play against, but they’re both.

“It reflects poorly on the manager, the staff and the players.”

Jamie Carragher described United as “an absolute mess”, while Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness says Solskjaer is to blame after United’s worst-ever home defeat to Liverpool.

The Anfield legend didn’t miss, blaming United’s coaching and game-plan for the 5-0 humiliation.

“United are vulnerable, they’re between two stools, don’t know what direction they’re going in and that must be down to the coaching staff and the manager,” he said.

“Several of the goals they were caught between pressing and not pressing. They didn’t have a game-plan. For Liverpool they were fabulous throughout. It was a sad, sad day for United.”

United captain Harry Maguire was on post-match interview duties for his side and apologised to the supporters.

“First and foremost, apologies to the fans, it’s nowhere near good enough for this club,” he said.

“[The supporters] stuck with us right to the end, even when it was 5-0, they were singing, and we appreciate that. It wasn’t good enough.

“I think in the first half it was too open, I’m not here to analyse the game, we gave them too many chances, they were clinical, we had a lot of chances ourselves…defensively to concede four in a half of football is not good enough.

“To lose to Liverpool hurts. They way that we lost the game, it’s not good enough. We’re working as hard as possible but at the moment it’s not good enough.”

“If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer survives this then he can survive anything,” The Telegraph Jason’s Burt wrote

“This was as shambolic, humiliating, embarrassing and disgraceful as it gets for Manchester United. And it all happened at the hands of Liverpool.”
