Jurgen Klopp sympathizes with Solskjaer

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sympathized with his Manchester United counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following their 5-0 win at Old Trafford.

Liverpool ran riot in Manchester with four of the goals coming in the first half in what was a terrible outing for the hosts; a move that has seen fans call on the sacking of the Norwegian tactician.

Asked if he had sympathy for Solskjaer, Klopp said after the game: "Of course [I have sympathy]. The last thing I'd want to be is in his shoes in this moment.

"In the moments when you lose a derby you don't want to go and answer questions, so it's for sure not nice for him."

The loss leaves United at position seven with 14 points after nine-game; eight points below leaders Chelsea who had thrashed Norwich 7-0 earlier on Saturday.

Liverpool are now placed second with 21 points and will be looking to wrestle the league title from Manchester City who are third on 20 points following their win over Brighton and Hove Albion.

Things don't come easier for United as they have a tough run of fixtures starting with Tottenham, Atalanta (in the Champions League) before starting the month with a clash against Manchester City.
