Liverpool fans were certainly enjoying themselves during their side's Europa League clash against Manchester United.

The travelling fans at Old Trafford were in high spirits during the match after Philippe Coutinho's stunning strike cancelled out Anthony Martial's penalty in the first half.

The Brazilian's goal effectively ended the tie as a competition. Jurgen Klopp's side were 2-0 up from the first leg when Martial struck from the penalty spot after a Nathaniel Clyne foul in the area.

That set the home crowd off and Manchester United were certainly on top in the first half, however Coutinho soon silenced them with his brilliant strike.

The former Inter Milan man embarked on a mazy run down the left wing, before scooping the ball beautifully beyond David de Gea in the Manchester United goal.

The strike meant the game can't go to penalties and means Manchester United needed to score three times in order to progress. 

With the clock ticking down, Liverpool fans didn't miss their chance to rub salt in the wound, and they were inspired by Manchester United legend Paul Scholes. The former midfielder has been heavily critical of Van Gaal's side in recent weeks, especially after the first leg at Anfield.

The 41-year-old slammed Manchester United for their lack of "identity" in the 2-0 defeat, and accused Van Gaal of driving the once-great club into the ground. The travelling supporters at Old Trafford didn't miss a beat this evening, chanting: "Scholesy's right, your team are s***e!"

The pressure will no doubt be on Van Gaal after tonight's game, and with Scholes working as a pundit on the game there's no doubt the war of words between the Dutch boss and the club legend isn't at an end.

Should Man Utd let LVG go now or wait until the summer?
