EPL: I am stunned – Gary Neville reacts to Man Utd’s 2-1 win over Liverpool

 


Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has expressed his delight over their 2-1 win over Liverpool on Monday night.

Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford netted for the hosts, before Mohammed Salah pulled one back for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The victory saw Erik ten Hag’s men leapfrog Liverpool in the Premier League table.

Neville said on Sky Sports: “I’m really proud as a Manchester United fan watching these players and I never thought I’d say that after the past few weeks.

“The fight, spirit and energy from Manchester United was brilliant.

“I’m absolutely stunned, I didn’t think that was possible. I couldn’t believe what I was watching in those first 45 minutes. I didn’t think Manchester United were capable. This is a massive turnaround.

“I don’t know what’s happened this week on the training ground, but they’ve responded. I don’t know what it is but I cannot believe what I have witnessed. They outrun Liverpool, they outsprinted Liverpool.

“That can’t be a one-off. That’s the standard they’ve now set, we’ve all seen the work ethic. They ran a lot more than they have done previously and played some good football along the way.

“The crowd were cheering after two or three minutes because of tackles and effort, not because of goals but because of challenges.

“They were under massive pressure, those United players, so to respond to last week was a big moment for Ten Hag and the club.”
