Herrera, Fellaini and more: United stars react on Twitter to 3-0 win

Following Manchester United's 3-0 win against Liverpool a number of the hosts' stars expressed their delight on social media.

Manchester United made it six wins in a row on Sunday when they defeated fierce rivals Liverpool 3-0 at Old Trafford.

Wayne Rooney put the hosts ahead before a contentious second from Juan Mata just before half-time left Liverpool with a mountain to climb.

Mata scored from a clear offside position and that goal ensured United had a relatively easy ride in the second half, although they still had their goalkeeper David de Gea to thank along with some poor finishing from the Reds' forward-line.

Robin van Persie ended the game as a contest when he scored the third and Louis van Gaal's side are now building up a head of steam at exactly the right time of the season.

Following the match a number of United players took to Twitter to share their feelings about the win.

Goal-scorer Rooney hailed De Gea who he said "was incredible again," while Ashley Young kept it succinct, simply tweeting "UNITED".

Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera and Mata also got in on the action and they will be hoping to be feeling just as elated in the weeks to come.
