United fans react on Twitter to Schweinsteiger's performance against Liverpool

Manchester United defeated Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday but what did the hosts' fans think of Bastian Schweinsteiger's contribution?

Manchester United put in a wonderful display at both ends of the pitch as they overcame Liverpool 3-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Goals from Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial ensured that Christian Benteke’s acrobatic strike for the Reds was nothing more than a consolation, but it was another United star who shone particularly brightly for Louis van Gaal.

German international Bastian Schweinsteiger was simply sensational in his latest appearance, proving just what a class act he is when fully fit, and if this is a sign of things to come United fans have the midfield leader they have been crying out for season after season.

Schweinsteiger bossed the midfield and while summer signing Anthony Martial and the recently returned David de Gea stole the headlines, the former Bayern Munich man deserved plenty of his own.
