Michael Owen makes prediction about Manchester United, Ruud Gullit reacts to Liverpool win

Liverpool won against Manchester United in the Europa League on Thursday.

Michael Owen has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Manchester United’s season is over.

The former United striker made the prediction following the Red Devils’ 2-0 defeat to Liverpool away from home at Anfield in the first leg of the Europa League last-16 tie on Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, former Newcastle United manager Ruud Gullit has praised Liverpool for their performance against Louis van Gaal’s side.

 

The tie is still alive but only just, as United will have to produce their best performance of the season next week in order to go through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

The United faithful at Old Trafford will be doing their best to motivate the team, but a 2-0 lead for Liverpool means that Jurgen Klopp’s side are favourites.

Van Gaal’s side still have a chance of breaking into the top four of the Premier League this season, though.

It looks unlikely at the moment, but if United can put together a run of positive results, then they could give themselves a good chance of finishing in the Champions League places.
