How Twitter reacted as Zlatan salvages draw to deny Liverpool
Manchester United had Zlatan Ibrahimovic to thank after the Swede’s late header ensured Jose Mourinho’s men took a share of the spoils against Liverpool.
It was a thrilling encounter at Old Trafford and it went down a storm with fans worldwide.
After a bright start from the hosts, Paul Pogba chose the wrong time to use his hands by giving away a penalty.
Still, it helped promote his new bespoke hashtag on Twitter…

All in all, it wasn’t a great day for the world’s most expensive footballer…
#Pogba‘s first half stats:
– Crap haircut
– Big miss
– 746458 misplaced passes

James Milner netted his sixth penalty of the season, and the former England international has never lost a Premier League game in which he’s scored.
But in the second half, Rooney was on for Carrick and it was one-way traffic for large spells.
And while Pogba had a day to forget, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is made for the big occasion, and headed home a late leveller.
The big Swede has adapted rather well to the Premier League…
14 – Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 14 goals in his first 20 PL games – the same total as Alan Shearer and Sergio Aguero. Elite.

And after being derided by plenty of fans in recent times, Marouane Fellaini again had a role to play…
For all the people abusing Fellaini, he played a crucial part in that goal. Clearly doesn’t deserve the amount of abuse he gets.

Man United fan Rachel Riley was rather relieved come the final whistle…
Well thank god (Zlatan) for that! Great sub appearance from Fellaini too, and breathe ?

Pop star Nathan Sykes summed it all up rather nicely…
