Liverpool fans find it funny what Pedro Chirivella did to Fred in victory v Man Utd

Liverpool would have taken great satisfaction from their 4-1 victory over Manchester United on Saturday night.

Although it was only a friendly, both sides would have been eager to get one over their bitter rivals before the start of the season.

And Liverpool did just that thanks to goals from Sadio Mane, Daniel Sturridge, Sheyi Ojo and Xherdan Shaqiri.

One man that impressed for the Reds was young midfielder, Pedro Chirivella.

The 21-year-old has not had too many first team opportunities in his career to date, and is actually due to leave Liverpool very shortly.

Earlier on Sunday, it was revealed that Liverpool had agreed a fee worth potentially £3.5 million for the Spaniard.

But one moment against Manchester United, a challenge between Fred and Chirivella, has ensured he won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

With the game in its latter stages, Chirivella found himself under pressure from Jose Mourinho’s new signing, Fred.

But the Spaniard proved too strong for the Brazilian, who lost his feet and fell to the ground.

Fred then appealed desperately for a foul, only for his appeals to be waved away.

Although it looks as if he may have slipped, Liverpool fans still found it funny how a youngster managed to get the better of Man United’s new signing.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp revealed after the game how his side performed better than expected in their convincing victory.

“It was better than I would have expected, to be honest,” he admitted. “We played over 90 minutes of really good football on a very difficult pitch for both teams.

“We played simple and quick, kept them moving. That was good. After the Dortmund game [a 3-1 defeat] I didn’t feel really good but I knew I don’t have to make it bigger than it is.

“It’s a pre-season game so if you make mistakes you should lose. Today we don’t make it bigger of course.”

And he also praised Shaqiri, who netted his first goal for the club with a superb effort.

“That’s not normal after four days in the club, adapting that well to the style of play,” the Liverpool manager said.

“We wanted to help him a little bit with the position so that it’s not too complicated.

“We gave him a lot of freedom, offensively playing natural, plus offering runs in behind, which is what he did especially around the Sturridge goal.”
