Manchester United are on a desperate run of form of late - but the struggles of bitter rivals Liverpool is putting a smile on supporter's faces.
United rightfully took their fair of stick for losing at home to the Canaries on Saturday - but ever so briefly, this was forgotten as Liverpool suffered a 3-0 beating by Watford.
A win for Liverpool could have taken them to within two points of United, who are currently in fifth place, but as it is a five point gap remains, with Jurgen Klopp's side in ninth position.
Liverpool have already made their move to fire a manager this season, axing Brendan Rodgers for Jurgen Klopp - and the German is still familiarising himself with life in England, not yet having a transfer window to put his own stamp on the squad.
United boss Louis van Gaal is himself a man under pressure, and had he been looking up the table at rivals Liverpool by now, then his job could be in even more jeopardy than it is now.
Supporters took a brief bit of joy in Liverpool's troubles, taking to Twitter to poke fun at Liverpool's loss to the Hornets...

I love the fact that even though United are doing awful, Liverpool still find a way to do even worse... ⚽ #MUFC— Gareth Unwin (@GarethUnwin_) December 20, 2015
Every week us United fans get depressed about how crap we are, then we have Liverpool to remind us how bad it could be #mufc— The United View (@ItsAProcessMUFC) December 20, 2015
All my mates who are Liverpool fans have broken their phones at the same time and can't reply to me. They were working last night! #MUFC— Rob Hammond (@bobsta77) December 20, 2015
If #MUFC are considering a change of manager they should make move soon. Because Liverpool will be looking for a new manager at this rate.— Alan O'Brien (@garden_snapper) December 20, 2015
