Manchester United have been described as a "waste of space" by a club legend following their 4-0 defeat to Liverpool on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils were once again on the receiving end of a heavy defeat at the hands of the Merseysiders, who had beat them 5-0 earlier this season too.

Those results have set an unwanted record for the Mancunians, with Jurgen Klopp's side becoming the first team to score nine goals against United in one campaign since the EPL's inception in 1992, according to Goal.

Mohamed Salah's brace in the encounter ensured that he equalled Steven Gerrard's record tally of nine strikes against the Manchester club, while he also became the first player in EPL history to score five times against the Red Devils in a single season, per Opta Sports – he had also scored a hat-trick at Old Trafford earlier this season.

United legend Gary Neville did not hold back in his criticism of his former club after the match.

"I've been watching Man United for 42 years and this is as bad as it gets, honestly," he said during Sky Sports' live coverage of the game. 

"I watched them through the 80s, I've never seen a group lack an appetite to play during my time watching the club.  

"Let's be fair, this United team are a waste of space.  

"However, the football Liverpool are playing is absolutely sublime.

"De Gea is helpless as he's watching the hopelessness ahead of him.  

"United looked promising towards the end of last season. 

"The demise and where they've been at all season has been alarming. What we're watching right now is nothing. This is just a nothing. 

"These players want the season over so they can hide behind the new manager and blame the old.  

"An excuse culture permeating the whole club."
