But he was snapped looking shell-shocked as Jurgen Klopp‘s rampant Reds side raced into an early 2-0 lead.
Luis Diaz opened the scoring in the fifth minute, before Mohamed Salah doubled the hosts’ tally in the 22nd minutes.
The cameras then panned to Ferguson in the stands, with fans instantly taking to social media to discuss his reaction.
In contrast, Liverpool icon Kenny Dalglish was all smiles as the Carabao Cup winners put on a show for their supporters against United.
Commenting on a picture shared by talkSPORT of the two ex-managers, one user tweeted: “This breaks my heart.”
Another said: “Stop dragging this poor old man out for nightmare.”
A third added: “Poor Ferguson watching the team that we had built over the years just be buried to the ground by this players who don’t know what it means to play for Manchester United.”
This supporter then commented: “As a Liverpool fan I love seeing UTD’s demise but I genuinely feel sorry for Fergy!”
Meanwhile one fan questioned: “I gotta ask SAF why he does this to himself by coming to every derby. It’s not good for him.”
Even Specsavers got involved, as they joked: “Sir Alex Ferguson should take his glasses off.”
Gary Neville was left fuming with United when speaking on commentary for Sky Sports, as he blasted the squad as a “waste of space”.
He remarked: “The demise today and all season has been alarming. These are the easiest fixtures in the league at this moment in time.
“I’ve been watching Manchester United for 42 years. This is as bad as it gets in my time watching the club.
“This United team are a waste of space. They’re hopeless in front of David De Gea.”
