Liverpool progressed to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, thanks to a wondrous goal from Brazilian attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho at the stroke of half time.

 

Manchester United always faced an uphill task as they attempted to overturn their 2-0 first-leg deficit against Liverpool, but an Anthony Martial penalty gave the Old Trafford faithful hopes of a comeback.

However, Liverpool’s No.10 silenced the home crowd with one of the best goals of the UEFA Europa League season thus far. Picking up the ball on the left, Coutinho danced past a hapless Guillermo Varela, before nonchalantly chipping the ball into the back of the net from an improbable angle.

With the Red Devils’ European adventure now over, supporters focussed their ire once more on manager Louis van Gaal, as it becomes even more difficult to earn a place in the Champions League next season.

Here are the best tweets from the deciding leg of the first ever European tie between the two English giants:
