Ex-Man Utd player Donald Love scores comical own goal vs Liverpool

A horrible moment for Donald Love...

Facing Liverpool right now is a daunting prospect.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds are far and away the best team in world football right now and even their reserve players are pretty darn tasty.

The likes of Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliot will surely be world beaters one day.

So when Shrewsbury went in at half-time 1-0 down today during their FA Cup fourth-round tie, the first thing on their minds will have been: "No silly mistakes early doors in the second-half."

Sadly, the message didn't get through to former Manchester United player Donald Love.

That's because seconds into the second period of play, the defender scored one of the most comical own goals you will see all season to make it 2-0 to the Premier League leaders.

If that was at the right end, it would have been a top finish!

Shrewsbury's New Meadow stadium fell silent as the ball trickled into the corner and Liverpool players barely even celebrated.

You have to feel for the guy, but the fact he played for United in the past means Reds fans will have little sympathy for Love.

Liverpool's official Twitter account certainly didn't, announcing the own goal with capital letters just to rub salt in the wounds.

Absolute savagery from the admin there.
