Premier League LIV vs MUN Highlights: Manchester United remains at the top as both teams play out goalless draw; FULL TIME: LIV 0-0 MUN
Manchester United and Liverpool played out an entertaining 0-0 draw to see the spoils shared at Anfield on Sunday.
The game was billed as potentially going a long way to deciding who took home the Premier League title this year as the first and third placed teams faced off.
Despite Liverpool enjoying the majority of the possession and shots on goal, United were controlled in defence and threatened with counterattacks.
While neither side broke the deadlock in the first half there were chances aplenty and either team could have easily snagged the game’s opening goal.
Liverpool rained 10 shots on the United goal and looked the better side for the opening 30 minutes but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team were coming back into it in the final 15 minutes before half-time.
The second half continued at a similar pace. Roberto Firmino came close to scoring for Liverpool just before the hour mark when Andy Robertson blazed a ball across the United goal that he was inches from tapping home.
United’s best chance of the game on 74 minutes when Marcus Rashford passed the ball to Luke Shaw on the edge of the box who sent a low ball dashing across the face of Alisson’s goal. Bruno Fernandes got a touch to it but directed right at the Liverpool keeper.
At the other end of the pitch, David De Gea was also forced into a save as Thiago aimed a ball at the top left corner of his goal.
