Because at Utd expectations are always high, and 1st is expected, thus anything below best is a crisis whereas at Liverpool they see 4th as a success so if they look like achieving it their fans are raving about how they are playing.
And why not? Top four puts a team into Europe doesn't it?

If you look at recent form its not difficult to see that UTD staying 2nd is unlikely.Maybe the January window will change things,but as it stands it looks like Chelsea and Liverpool will overtake them,they are certainly playing better and have been for a while now,hence the gap getting smaller.Spurs seem to have woken from a slumber so no surprise if they don't as well.
What form exactly?
Liverpool drew 3 of their last 6.
Chelsea lost to West Ham about 10 days ago.
Utd's "form" is weighted towards having played City who destroyed all the top teams anyway.
It will be City 1st, Utd/Chelsea in some combo of 2nd/3rd, Liverpool/Tottenham 4th.
