Why Harry Wilson’s celebration will have p***** off every Man United fan at Old Trafford

The Liverpool loanee knew exactly what he was doing

It’s a phrase all Man United fans will be sick to death of hearing.

Since 2005, the term ‘five times mate’ can be heard in most corners of the North West on a daily basis.

United fans must have thought they could go two hours without a reminder of how many European Cups Liverpool have won while playing Derby in the Carabao cup.

A competition the Old Trafford club have won… five times.

However, Liverpool loanee and boyhood fan Harry Wilson had other ideas.

He wheeled away after a stunning 30-yard free-kick with his five fingers up, silencing the Old Trafford faithful.



There will be nothing sweeter than scoring one of the best goals of your career, against your arch rivals and then p****** off every single one of them with a salty celebration.

It was a goal young Wilson’s manager Frank Lampard would have been proud of. He left the United keeper Sergio Romero rooted.

Wilson produced a man-of-the-match performance against Liverpool’s main rivals.

It looked as though it could have been a long night for the Rams with Juan Mata finishing off a slick move for United within three minutes.

Following Wilson’s screamer, Romero was shown red for handling outside the box.

Derby then must have thought they’d clinched it with an 85th minute when a header from Jack Marriot left third-choice keeper Lee Grant helpless.

Only for the man-mountain Marouane Fellaini to take the game to pens.

After 15 successful spot kicks, up stepped Phil Jones.

The England centre-half allowed Scott Carson to be the hero with a tame penalty to the keeper’s left.

It was a win that left Derby boss Frank Lampard “Shell-shocked.”

Having won at Old Trafford four times as a player, this will have tasted even sweeter, leaving former boss Jose Mourinho frustrated.

Could it be Derby’s year? I’m sure young Wilson will be saying so.
