Liverpool and Man United draw

first_imgLIVERPOOL and Manchester United played out a goalless and uneventful stalemate on a disappointing night at Anfield.Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool would have drawn level on points with leaders Manchester City with a fifth successive Premier League victory, but were subdued by a classic Jose Mourinho performance of defensive organisation and discipline.United did not allow Liverpool to build the momentum and intensity that characterised their game this season, while Mourinho’s limited attacking ambitions ensured chances were at a premium.The Portuguese was still grateful for two fine second-half saves from goalkeeper David de Gea, who dived low to stop Emre Can and saved athletically from Philippe Coutinho’s 25-yard effort.United’s best chance also came in the second half, but the unmarked Zlatan Ibrahimovic directed Paul Pogba’s cross off target.last_img
