- Comedian Dillan Oliphant has taken great pleasure in Manchester United's thrilling 2-1 victory over Liverpool
- As parochial a supporter of the Red Devils as one could ever find, Oliphant heaped praise on first-team coach Benni McCarthy's role in the win
- The funny man is known for his funny videos about his club, whether the team wins or loses
One individual is determined to enjoy Manchester United's 2-1 victory over Liverpool last night for its full value.
South African comedian Dillan Oliphant released a video on social media in which he jokingly praises first-team coach and compatriot Benni McCarthy for Erik Ten Hag's men's win. Jadon Sancho put the home side at Old Trafford into an early lead in the first half, which was then doubled by Marcus Rashford in the second stanza. Mohamed Salah pulled one back for the visitors late in the match.
"That win was all Benni McCarthy. Rashford's composure for the goal: Benni McCarthy. That one was for TKZee. If Benni was a defender, he would have been Martinez. Benny the Butcher!

"Liverpool have Klopp, we have Benni. Kaapse kloppse. If you wanna blame some, Klopp, blame Benni. It's Benni's fault ya'll lost. It's Benni's fault Liverpool was never ready. That's the heart we want to see, Christian Eriksen. It's all because of the Cape of Good Hope, Benni McCarthy."
Oliphant then ended his monologue with a jab aimed at former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen, who he curses at the end of his videos out of hate-love-hate principle.
Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United star ignores Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher during warm-up
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher was given the cold shoulder by Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Liverpool's game against Manchester United.
As reported by Sports Brief, Ronaldo, who was named on the bench by Erik ten Hag, walked across to the pitchside where Carragher and other former football players were doing analysis. Carragher now works for Sky Sports as a pundit. He was in the company of former Manchester United players Roy Keane and Gary Neville.
Ronaldo walked straight to Neville, then skipped Carragher, who was in the middle and went straight to Keane despite Carragher's attempts to greet him.
