“You can’t come to Anfield and be like that.”
Paul Scholes was heavily critical of Manchester United’s performance in their 4-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night.
Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane, and a brace from Mohamed Salah rounded up the scoring as Jurgen Klopp’s side went top of the Premier League table.
The Reds have a 9-0 aggregate advantage over Man United this season, the biggest one-sided league results between the sides in the fixture’s history.

Despite the Red Devil’s starting the match in a back five, it only took Liverpool five minutes to open the scoring. Scholes, 47, was frustrated with Man United’s display on Tuesday night and this season.
The 11-time Premier League winner argued that the Man United players displayed a lack of effort throughout, as Ralf Rangnick’s side lost their ninth Premier League game of the season.
“I’ve lost a little bit of anger towards it (United’s poor season) now, I feel saddened, it’s not great to watch,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.
“I’d like to see them give at least a little bit of effort, it looks like the last place they want to see.”
Scholes: Man United being “disgusting to watch.”
Scholes said that Man United, who only registered one shot on target in the game, needed to show more desire against their fierce rivals.
The former Red Devils midfielder stated that Rangnick’s team were “disgusting to watch” following Liverpool dominating with 72 per cent possession.
“They want their season over, they want it done, they want to move on, but unfortunately, there’s no hiding place. You can’t come to Anfield and be like that,” Scholes added.
“Them fans have travelled a long way, it’s disgusting to watch. But that’s where the club are at the minute. They’ve got to give a little bit of effort, just for them fans coming to the ground.”
