Many Manchester United fans believe the team had a great week after recording two back-to-back victories and a draw against Liverpool.

During the week in review, the Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by Liverpool at Old Trafford, thanks to a late goal from Jurgen Klopp’s men after Rashord had given Solskjaer’s men the lead.

The Red Devils later traveled to Partizan Belgrade in one of Tuesday’s Europa League fixtures and they recorded a hard-fought 1-0 victory.

Solskjaer’s men wrapped up the week with a resounding 3-1 victory over Norwich on Sunday. However, former Arsenal star Paul Merson wasn’t convinced.

According to him, it is surprising to see the fans claimed that they had a great week because they defeated Partizan Belgrade and Norwich who were far from impressive so far this season.

He claimed that the club have found themselves in a devastating situation in recent weeks, which is the major reason why the fans celebrated a ‘good week’ for playing a one-all draw against Liverpool who didn’t have a good record at Old Trafford right from time.

“We put such a high bar on Man Utd because they’re the biggest club in the world and now we’re talking about having a good week drawing at home to Liverpool and beating Partizan and Norwich away.

“I didn’t think in my wildest dreams that I’d be sitting here talking about a good week like that for Man Utd. A few years ago, it wouldn’t even come up, it would just be run of the mill, ”

“Liverpool don’t win at Old Trafford and they go and win the other two games – that’s what is expected, but this is where they are at the moment.” he concluded.
